Perhaps the first thing you think of when considering a hardscape design company is a custom-designed patio. Stone and cement paver patios last virtually forever, and they’re low maintenance.

Outdoor Fireplaces and Kitchens

Host outdoor parties or relax with your loved ones in the warmth of a fire gently burning in a custom stone veneer outdoor fireplace. Select from a variety of unique styles, any of which will add character to your home’s outdoor living space for upgraded outdoor living. Let hardscaping be the vehicle that elevates your home's value and your comfort level.

If your yard has a sloped area, stone retaining walls can help support the upper space, ensuring water can drain properly and preventing erosion. This form of hardscape adds value and preventative maintenance to your yard. Retaining walls also nicely complement the exterior design and improve the curb appeal of your home.

Retaining Walls

Another excellent hardscaping option for sloped yards is a staircase leading up the incline, potentially connecting a paver walkway from the home to a paver patio. We will take your yard’s natural landscape into account when designing your upgraded outdoor living hardscape.

Stairs & Landings

Need a little shade when relaxing on your patio? We offer louvered pergolas for partial shade and solid patio covers for total shade. Our pergolas are available in many unique styles to upgrade your outdoor living. Don't miss out on this hardscape design that allows you to enjoy the sun without the burn.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hardscaping Near Wilmington, DE

Our clients often ask us how we suggest keeping their hardscape investment clean. We always recommend sealing the hardscape first, then maintaining it by sweeping, proper weed maintenance, and preventative measures like mats and regular inspections.

Using hardscape to upgrade your outdoor living not only approves your home's curb appeal but also adds to its value. With custom hardscaping,  you have more than a house with a basic yard. You now have an outdoor oasis. 

What Do I Need to Know About Gravel & Hardscaping?

Gravel can be considered a form of hardscaping. While it's not as solid or permanent as materials like concrete or brick, gravel is often used in landscaping and hardscaping design projects to create pathways, driveways, and other outdoor surfaces.


What Does Hardscape Paving Include?

“We have loved First Class for their lawn care and landscaping but now they have gone up and beyond with our patio design and installation. Jake has an amazing eye for design! We couldn't be happier with our amazing patio, outdoor island with grill, gardening bed, and gazebo. We plan to do more work with them in the future!”

Kitty B.

“Hiring First Class Lawncare after speaking with Jim was a no brainer. After 3 years of living in our home, and neglecting our flowerbeds, we knew the job was beyond our skill set and we needed a professional. First class was that, Professional! Juan and his team worked tirelessly throughout the day and even stayed late into the evening to make sure the job was complete. To say they went above and beyond and transformed my yard is an understatement! First class will be my first and only call for all of my future landscaping needs. Thank you!!!”
