Hardscaping Work

Hardscaping construction work includes many elements of landscaping. It is the frame to build your outdoor living space. Below we mention just a few of many materials used in hardscaping.

The interlocking patio pavers are one of the latest pavement systems as of today.

It is using an ancient technology in today’s pavement architecture. Using an interlocking feature between and among the pavers, it made a better paving system with more durability, vitality, design, and class. One of the known advantages of interlocking concrete paver is that there will be less movement in the pavements because of the constraining power of the pavers interlocked with one another. This enables stability in the cold climate, even in accommodating heavy vehicles. The interlocking patio paver system also enables an easy-repair function on each paver without much trouble. For this particular reason, the maintenance cost of pavers is at the least. Due to their durability, the chances of damaging the interlocking concrete pavers are very small. The benefits of Interlocking Concrete Pavers are many:

  • A large variety of paver styles
  • Many color choices
  • Create your custom design
  • Low maintenance
  • 30 year + life expectancy
  • No cracking
  • 3 times stronger than poured concrete
  • Perfect for our climate freeze-thaw conditions
  • Natural drainage
  • Environmental-friendly
  • And more…

Concrete Block Retaining Wall Benefits.

  • We do not recommend using lumber to build retaining walls. Lumber will not last very long in our climate and you will have to spend your money again. If you ever decide to sell your property, old broken lumber retaining wall will create liability issue and make it less desirable for potential buyers.
  • With similar installation cost, there are many attractive precast concrete block systems available. Also called segmental retaining walls, they offer extreme durability and long-lasting beauty. Well designed, correctly installed interlocking pavers and concrete block retaining walls will add value to your property.

Stamped Concrete Patio

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete photos here show the complexity of poured and stamped concrete installation. In our Canadian climate construction of any poured concrete hardscape elements requires a great deal of site preparation. The success of stamped concrete projects depends often on location since one of the critical requirements is very good positive drainage. Any water collecting on or under any poured concrete areas in the cold months will cause it to shift and crack.

Over the years Vivid Garden built many wooden and composite lumber outdoor decks. Every fence, pergola or outdoor deck is unique and custom designed to accommodate the site, our client’s needs, and lifestyle. So please, do not call and ask how much we charge per square or linear foot/ meter of deck or fence. We are not a carpet depot here, unfortunately.

At Vivid Garden we would be more than happy to give you all answers to your deck or fence project over the phone. This would make our work so much easier. Unfortunately, we are not able to do this. Every project has its different unique conditions and problems.

In order to give you an accurate estimate, we need to meet with you on site to assess the project first. Contact us to schedule consultation meeting so we can answer all the questions, you have. When you plan to build a new outdoor deck, pergola or fence you should consider several choices of materials to build it with.

The most common material to build a house outdoor deck or other structure is wood. Below are some examples of wood lumber most commonly used in Calgary area;

  • Untreated spruce. A very short lifespan of just a few years.
  • ACQ Treated Lumber. Longer lifespan, treated with chemicals.
  • Western Red Cedar. The natural material the longest lifespan of the two above and material cost is only 10-15% higher than the cost of ACQ treated lumber.
  • Tropical hardwood lumber Kayu very long lifespan and attractive, but expensive.

There are several options for synthetic composite decking options available. Browse our gallery of decks. Find ideas for your backyard, contact us today to design and build the deck for your family.

Composite decks are maintenance free. For a very long time, people were looking for maintenance free building materials. Composite decking allows building the deck you don't have to paint or keep up for years.
