Hardscaping Installations

We design and build beautiful low maintenance hardscapes

 Hardscape Design & Installation In Crete, Illinois.
We offer professional and visually stunning hardscaping services

There are two main elements to a landscape and these are hardscaping and softscaping.  Hardscaping is all of the "hard" man-made elements that can make your landscape such as a driveway, a paver or natural stone patio, a walkway from your driveway to your front door, a retaining wall to hold back a slope, water features, and outdoor structures like decks, gazebos, and pergolas.

Softscaping would be your lawn area, all of your garden beds, hedges, and shrubs, and plantings. Hardscaped areas of your landscaping are usually more expensive and time consuming to complete because of the materials and labor involved but they also have much lower maintenance requirements as they are not "living" like your lawns or gardens.

Contempo Stone Design is a landscaping contractor based out of Will County and serving the Chicagoland suburbs including Burr Ridge, Elmhurst, Hinsdale, Lemont, Western Springs, Orland Park and also Northwest Indiana.  We specialize in designing and building hardscapes for both residential and commercial properties of all sizes.

From a beautiful natural stone walkway that winds through your gardens, to a paver patio for your outdoor living area to a spectacular water fall feature and more, our team can build anything you want out of pavers, natural stone, or landscape block.

Hardscape Installation Services We Offer:

  • New driveway installations (brick, stone, gravel, or concrete)
  • Interlocking paver patios
  • Outdoor cooking areas
  • Pool Decks
  • Retaining wall construction
  • Gazebos and pergolas
  • Walkways and pathways
  • Water features
  • Drought tolerant landscapes

A well designed and constructed hardscape is an integral part of any landscape design.  Your hardscaping provides definition, separation, and organization to the natural areas and features of your landscape.  Hardscaping elements define how you use your new space, such as with a driveway that leads a visitor to your home, or a pathway that can lead visitors through different areas of your landscape or a patio area that allows you get more enjoyment out of your outdoor space.  There are so many ways to implement hardscapes into your landscape design.

Contempo did a fabulous job on my patio. They are very profession, prompt, and gets the job completed in a timely manner. I have had many bad experiences with other companies in the past so was very hesitant to try another company but, I am glad I found this company. I am very pleased with the end result, my patio is beautiful now. I highly recommend Contempo to others. I will definitely use again in the future.

Jorge is exceptional to work with! He is professional, responds quickly and mocks up what his team will do so there are never any surprises. He put up a retaining on all sides of our yard, regraded our yard, added pavers with rocks, created a beautiful space with rocks for our trampoline and did all of our landscaping. He can truly do it all! Highly recommend him and his team!

Contempo Stone Design did an amazing job with my outdoor patio. From start to finish very responsive and addressed all questions about the project. Very punctual and professional. Jorge and his team are extremely creative and worked diligently to ensure that the design incorporated all of the elements that we described in the build.

If you are looking to design & build an outdoor entertainment area at your home, Contempo Stone Design should be at the top of your list to contact. Owner Jorge Aguirre was a superb person to work with. His design creativity, his experience, integrity and work ethic were unbelievable, from start to finish. He and his talented crew were prompt & on time every day, and before leaving the project, tidied up the site. After completing the project, he was true to his word: “You’ll hardly know we had been working there, except for your beautiful patio”. Our project included 2 connected patios at different levels, with a seating wall and custom steps. George’s creativity in designing a subtle lighting package to illuminate the space at night, we’re the finishing touch to the space. Needless to say, we are ecstatic about our new outdoor space and know that it exists because of George/Jorge and the crew at Contempo Stone Design. It is an investment in our new home that we will enjoy for a long time in the future. I can’t say enough about Contempo Stone Design for their abilities to give us what we dreamed of. George listened to our vision, and then delivered the project on time, on budget and exceeded our expectations. Contact us for pictures or further details
