Our Custom Hardscaping Services
When you use a retaining wall to hold back the sloped landscape of your yard, you are creating a focal piece that is as functional as it is beautiful. With masonry or a concrete retaining wall, you could obtain some serious benefits.
For example, a retaining wall can hold back flooding from watering the landscape, prevent erosion, and keep your landscape protected by making a visible barrier with your wall.
With concrete edging, you can create outlines for your existing landscaping, complementing your home’s style while allowing your plants to thrive as edging can block the spread of weeds or grass in your planters.
Edging can also help keep mulch or fertilizer in the flowerbed so you won’t have to worry about replacing the lost fertilizer so often. Edging can also create a visible barrier so people don’t step in your planter.
Walkways, like sidewalks, can make getting to key parts of your home or business easier but when implemented with landscaping features, they can be elegant and beautiful entrances to your home or business.
We offer materials like pavers, brick, flagstone, and concrete to create custom walkways, but with masonry, we give you the opportunity to craft custom bonds like running bonds, stacked bond, and basketweave bonds.
While masonry is a durable material, it has one glaring weakness, the mortar joints. In most cases, most mortar damage is only on the surface and is from age, weathering, and corrosion from dust, wind or rain. While damaged mortar can look bad, it’s often not as bad as it looks.
We offer the services of tuckpointing and repointing for damaged mortar joints, bringing them back to life! Tuckpointing is the process of repairing minor damage to the mortar, like small holes and is usually a preventative measure. Repointing, on the other hand, is the replacement of all the mortar on the masonry. Mortar is chipped out and replaced with new mortar, bringing your brick or natural stone back to life!
Here at Custom Masonry Virginia, we don’t leave out our commercial neighbors from our hardscaping services. By utilizing masonry in your landscape, you can unlike a new dimension to your property that you didn’t know was possible.
Besides appearance, masonry is a tough material so you won’t have to worry about heavy traffic wearing down your masonry surfaces. Masonry is also simplistic to maintain, and even harder to get dirty! You can find a few of our commercial hardscaping services down below:
- Stairs And Stoops
- Stone/Paver Patios

- Decorative Walls
- Stone/Brick Walkways
We offer the service of custom patio installation with concrete, brick, flagstone, and pavers. We have found that masonry patios are better suited for hardscaping thanks to their natural appearance and wide range of bond patterns that can be achieved.
Another reason why homeowners use masonry on their patios is that these natural materials are not affected by weather changes, they are cool to the touch in the summer and when it rains, you won’t have to worry about slipping!
For larger backyards, pathways can serve as a way to set apart the defined walkways of your home and lead into your landscaping. These pathways can be made out of stone, brick or pavers and can contrast well with concrete walkways.
These pathways are commonly highlighted with scenes in the landscaping like alcoves with retaining walls, benches or water features. Pathways can be any shape or follow any design you wish as they are not meant to be defined.
We offer the ability to create brick or flagstone columns for hardscaping. Most commonly, columns are used to cap off decorative walls to add a sense of upscale elegance to the backyard.
The effect of brick pillars in the backyard is meant to simulate the effect that trees may have on the landscape. They are used to add a sense of strength or stability while also can be used to create a gate.
Results You Can Count On
Benefits Of Using Masonry
Masonry is resistant to the adverse effects of weather like heavy rain, strong winds, and even hailstorms.
Masonry has been known to stand the test of time and when properly maintained can last a lifetime.
Masonry like clay brick is natural, abundant and recyclable, making them one of the top choices for green building.
With natural textures and cleft textures, masonry will offer a slip & skid-resistant finish, perfect for decking.
Low Building Costs
Natural masonry has a price tag of almost half the cost of manufactured stone as well as a longer lifespan.
Masonry is a natural material so maintenance is simplistic and can go years before needing to be resealed.
With materials like brick and pavers, once they are out of service, they can be used to create landscaping or recycled.
Increased Home Value
Hardscaping can make your home a more attractive option on the market when it’s time to sell.
Why Use Hardscaping?
One of the biggest reasons homeowners and business owners opt to have hardscaping implemented on their property is to add an interesting dimension to their landscape. Plain landscaping can grow old over time but with a hardscaped surface, we can turn your backyard into your personal oasis, an escape from reality.
Another reason why you should consider hardscaping is the fact that they are great for homes with poor soil quality. For example, if your soil is too wet, hard materials can help evaporate water more efficiently, reducing the moisture in your soil. Hardscaping can also improve the composition of the soil of the surrounding area, helping your plants grow like never before!
