Herman Landscape has been constructing retaining walls for over forty years. Today more than ever, new homes and even business sites are being built that require significant control of grades and soil retention. Most often the materials of choice are native fieldstone boulders or blocks of quarried limestone. More recently, segmented retaining walls of concrete blocks have become popular. In some cases, dry-laid stone walls or walls of landscape timbers may be appropriate choices. Our crews have worked extensively with all these materials. With Herman Landscape as your installer, you are assured that these critical structures will be built to last.
An even more technically-demanding area of construction may be paved surfaces. Herman Landscape Service is one of the Madison area’s leading and most respected installers of brick paving. We are proud to say that we have been designated as an authorized contractor for Unilock products, the top name in concrete pavers, recognizing our exceptional expertise, service, and guarantee. We place tremendous importance on paving here at Herman’s and maintain at least one entire crew that does only brick work. This dedication of resources has created a core group of craftsmen with the technical skills, problem solving capability and aesthetic sense to translate thin lines on paper into a three-dimensional molding of your unique and stylish outdoor environment.
Our designers are well-acquainted with both the limitations and opportunities of many paver styles, be they traditional, contemporary or faux-stone. We also work in paving of natural stone and clay. In a patio, for instance, many techniques may be used to form the spaces of your outdoor room, including stoops and steps, changes in patio level, retaining walls, free-standing walls and columns. As well as patios, Herman Landscape installs many walkways and even driveways in pavers. We can suggest to you numerous options for crafting of a distinctive front entry. Another option generating much interest among those wishing to go more ‘green’ is the use of permeable pavers, allowing the infiltration and absorption of surface water on site. Again, Herman Landscape has installed several fine examples of this application.
