Features such as paving, retaining walls and stone walkways create an elegant framework for your home and grounds. We are authorized contractors who will build your paving and masonry elements right. Need an outdoor fireplace and entertaining area? Want to define your property’s entrance with welcoming pavers leading to the front door? Need a retaining or accent wall for flower beds or trees? Our team can provide all this and more.

Landscape Lighting Systems


A carefully designed and executed lighting plan can add drama and value to your property, whether it’s defining an outdoor entertainment area, highlighting trees and architectural features or providing guide lights for safety and security. Ask about our high performance, energy efficient halogen and LED landscape lighting systems.

Water Features


Rainwater Harvesting systems and permeable pavers can be an environmentally responsible and viable part of the stormwater management plan required by most municipalities when additional impervious hardscape areas are part of the plan.

Something as simple as drain tile and a dry well can be an easy fix for that nasty, muddy wet spot in your lawn.

Could be we’re talking about the soothing sounds of a fountain near the patio to help ease away the tensions of a tough day at the office, or maybe you’d like to talk about a waterfall, pond and stream to give your landscape the full benefits and excitement & relaxation of water in motion…

Whatever your water garden desires might be, we have the equipment and expertise to make it happen!


When it comes to plants, we are all about ‘Right Plant/Right Place’ and fanatic about proper planting. Count on us to install a beautiful selection of hardy, site tolerant and low maintenance varieties to choose from in landscape ready sizes.

Need a new shade tree to help cool your home, or replace the Ash you lost to Emerald Ash Borer?

Flowering shrubs and evergreens to update the overgrown foundation plantings your builder installed?

How about a bed of shade tolerant perennials or groundcover for that area where the lawn won’t grow?

Best of all, we’ll guarantee what we plant for up to 2 years! (For full guarantee terms and conditions, see your Basic Landscape representative)
