Hardscaping, or hard landscaping, is often described as the yin to “soft” landscaping’s yang. 

So, think about the pergola and walkway that are surrounded by welcoming flowering shrubs and evergreens. Or the outdoor kitchen built on stamped concrete and flanked by beautifully tended grass, trees and flowers. 

While a hardscape can exist without a landscape, the view is so much better when they blend seamlessly together, creating a functional and fabulous element to outdoor living spaces. 

What are hardscape projects?

Ohio Valley Group has more than 25 years of hardscape experience. In that time, we have completed projects of every size and type for both residential and commercial clients. If we and they can dream it, we can build it! Here are some of the projects we excel at in our home turf of Cleveland and its suburbs:

What are good hardscape materials?

Any strong material that can withstand repeated use, pressure, weather and erosion is perfect for hardscaping, including:

  • Stone, gravel, brick – stepping stones, pavers, flagstone, many more
  • Many recycled materials such as river rock, rubber mulch, and glass 
  • Concrete masonry, concrete blocks and stamped concrete
  • Composite decking
  • Hardwoods
  • Built-in stainless steel grills 
  • Gas or wood-burning fireplaces made of stone or steel

Ohio Valley Group, specifically Jay and his crew, did an outstanding job on our back patio and pavilion. Jay took my small idea and turned into more than I could have imagined. We went from a tiny cement slab to an outdoor space that feels like another room in our house.
