Plantscape Solutions has experience in all aspects of hardscape design & construction. If your backyard hardscape project requires stone, brick, stucco, or CMU block construction we have the expertise to make your project a reality. From simple stone flower bed borders, to fire pits, and large retaining walls we’re one of the best Austin hardscape designers.
Our head mason Roland Del Toro has over 30 years experience and understands the hardscape design and construction techniques required to make your hardscape design project easily withstand the test of time. Every backyard hardscape design project is evaluated to insure we over engineer the aggregate base material, reinforcement, and holding capacity of the Portland Cement base or footer. The clay soils found in Austin area have the ability to expand and contract and can be very destructive.
Site prep including the use of proper base materials and the required compaction is the number one cause of failed walls, patios, and other hardscape features. It’s much cheaper to build something right the first time. There are lots of guys out there claiming to be masons who really don’t fully understand the engineering that needs to be built into every hardscape project.
We get calls to look at other companies’ failing projects on a regular basis. Problems such as leaning retaining walls or cracking patios are problems seen on a regular basis. Most of the time we have to give people the bad news that the project they invested thousands of dollars into is a total loss. It’s much cheaper to use a reputable company for Austin hardscape design and construction to build your front or backyard hardscape project the right way the first time.
