Building your dream yard

CUSTOM OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES BUILT TO LAST

Check out how we built this amazing backyard

OUR BUILD PROCESS IS WHAT ELEVATES US TO A LEVEL ABOVE MOST LANDSCAPE CONTRACTORS IN LANSING. WE’RE CONSTANTLY LEARNING NEW, INNOVATIVE CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES AND WE BUILD EACH PROJECT WITH THE GOAL TO LAST A LIFETIME!

The "standard" paver construction process:

 

Dig down 10"

Fill it with processed gravel, and compact really hard

Do a final grade with sand

Lay the pavers and joint sand

Pack up and on to the next one

 

THAT ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR US…

This is our Hardscape construction process

INNOVATIVE MATERIALS

 

There have been so many industry advancements that, "the way we've always done it," no longer cuts it. Michigan experiences some of the most frequent freeze/thaw cycles and most extreme temperature differences of all the states in the US. Interlocking Concrete Pavement, built to ICPI standards has an average life expectancy of 30-100 years. We strive to create an outdoor living space that you can enjoy for a lifetime.

If you have a site with tight access, you may notify us using this product.

 

Gator Base is a synthetic base that replicates the insulating value and weight distribution of a traditional interlock paver aggregate base. 

Gatorbase allows us to efficiently build a patio when machine access is limited. Less excavation, less backfill, same beautiful paver patio!

This is not weed fabric. It is used to separate and stabilize dissimilar soils and aggregates, its main use is to prevent subgrade soil from mixing with the gravel above.

Most of the time when hardscape installations fail, it happens from when the native soil migrates into the base material from the sides or bottom. 

Our projects last because we go the extra mile!

 

Tests conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other engineers around the world have consistently shown that a triaxial drive grid makes it possible to construct high-performing roads using a thinner aggregate base.

It is becoming more and more commonly used within the landscaping industry, however, not all companies have gotten on board. We've stayed ahead of the curve and had several years of experience installing this critical product.

Alliance G2 Maxx Polymeric sand is simply the best on the market. It hardens almost as rigid as the pavers themselves, and is rain safe within 15 minutes! 

What is the best part about high-quality polymeric sand? NO WEEDS! When properly installed, polymeric sand makes your interlocking pavers virtually maintenance-free!

The NEW Nitro semi-permeable joint infill is a great alternative to traditional polymeric sand that can be installed even in wet conditions and will harden much more than traditional sands.  It’s a great upgrade in the appropriate installations!
