Why bother with hardscaping features?

A lush green landscape in your back yard or front yard can be great, but sometimes you need a little “extra something” to break things up and really make it stand out. Hardscaping features are the perfect addition for properties that need a boost in the aesthetics and function departments. Not only do they look great, but they also provide a practical and eye-pleasing structure.


Our clients love our hardscaping work

Here's just a sample of some of the clients we've built patios, retaining walls, walkways, and driveways for throughout our service area.

  • We strongly recommend them… Neighbors commented on the crew's hard work and care as they watched the transformation.

  • My yards—front and back—are beautiful, and I cannot stop looking at them!

  • They have taken great care of my one acre lawn—aeration, overseeding, mowing, planting, pruning, mulch beds, walkways—they’ve done it all! The work is always top notch and my yard and lawn look great—year round!

  • Tenleytown really transformed my backyard into something wonderful. Highly recommend!

  • When we met with Tenley Landscapes, we knew we had finally found the right company for us. They were responsive and provided a high level of customer service that we didn't get from other companies.

  • I would hire Tenleytown Landscape again and again. They built me a beautiful, functional patio. They eradicated the bamboo in my backyard and gave me back workable earth for planting. I would highly recommend them.

  • I still can't get over how amazing my yard looks. The grass is perfection! The flowers and walkway make it look like I live in a tropical oasis. I feel disconnected from the hustle of my work week and I just sit back and unplug now in my gorgeous backyard!

  • Thank you for the fantastic stonework. We are so pleased with our new steps! Highly Recommended!

  • I have had Tenley come to do three projects involving hardscape. I cannot get over how beautiful my side walkway looks!

  • They did such a good job that I expanded the scope and had them enlarge my back porch and cover it with flagstone. It looks amazing…
