Naper Lawn Works designs and installs many different types of hardscapes. The look of distinction that pavers, stonescapes and outdoor structures add to any landscape is undeniable. "Cast in stone" creates a sense of permanence and elegant refinement to any property. When designed with vision, ecological and architectural flair, hardscapes can create sturdy and effective functionality all the while aesthetically expanding the functionality and aesthetic beauty of your home into the outdoor environment.
Hardscapes designed by the highly trained landscape engineers at Naper Lawn Works are an expression of our superior excellence and outstanding performance. Our hardscape craftsmen use materials, equipment and processes that stand up against Illinois' and Wisconsin's severe winter weather. Each hardscape project is a unique design, using color, texture and dimension to bring unique elegance to your finished project.
We start each design with a vision of outdoor living space transformation, and we finish it with an understanding that it will stand as a testament to our skill, creativity and dedication to customer loyalty and satisfaction.
Hardscape and landscape construction certainly defines outdoor space in the same way that planting beautifies outdoor space. Successful construction design and implementation has the ability to delineate space in a way that brings continuity and flow between the house and garden. It embellishes the functionality of the garden, pulling the user out as a participant rather than a mere observer. Its results are usually very immediate and in most cases permanent. It allows landscape to become architecture.
Outdoor rooms are created by intermingling and manipulating floors, ceilings, walls, and doors. Different media for each of those elements are chosen and integrated to bring about contrasting garden experiences. Garden walls might be fencing, wooden screening, solid panels of brick and stone, short retaining walls, or taller, free-standing enclosure walls. Floors can be segments of suspended decking, all types of paving, or visually can even be horizontal planes of water. Ceilings are normally partial ceiling such as awning, arbors, or trellises, but will sometimes become a fully functional ceiling as with the summerhouse, pavilion, or pool house.
Naper Lawn Works uses many specialty components of construction to bring life and diversity to the garden. There are many expressions of water features, water lighting, circulation provisions, and exterior enclosures that constitute well-planned and fully integrated construction themes.
