Our Process

Whether you have a clear vision for your project or need our advice to create a plan, we’ve got you covered.


First, your dedicated Account Manager will walk around your property with you to learn more about your desires and discuss ideas. Soon after, you will receive a detailed estimate for the project.


Next your Account Manager (and/or Senior Landscape Designer) can draw up a formal design involving any or all of these elements: plants, patios, walkways, retaining walls and drainage corrections.


Once you approve the design, your team begins the project using top-of-the-line equipment. Our crews are experts at their specific jobs. Better yet, they are efficient, courteous and clean up your job site daily.


This process leaves you with a beautiful, functional new outdoor area to enjoy with your family and friends. Kick back and relax!

Landscape Design & Install

Carefully selected landscaping adds style, dimension and value to a property. No matter the scale of your project, we can help guide you to the best options for your yard. We source the healthiest plants from the most trusted nurseries in the region.

Custom Patios

With many choices in styles, colors and textures, we can customize your patio to fit your taste and complement the surroundings. We can design and build your custom walkway using pavers, slabs, flagstone, brick or steppers.

Custom Walkways

A new walkway can transform the entrance to your property or create better flow to your back yard. We can design and build your custom walkway using pavers, slabs, flagstone, brick or steppers.

Retaining Walls

Typically designed to retain soil in a sloped area, retaining walls are also often used as decorative planters or seating. We build most retaining walls using retaining wall block, timbers, stacked stone, brick or veneer stone.

Custom Driveways

Replacing an unsightly, cracked driveway with a new one can dramatically change the appeal of your home—for you and your neighbors. We install custom paver driveways or brushed concrete for an attractive, welcoming entrance.

Townhome Design

Townhomes are unique properties from a landscape design standpoint. Often taking up the entire outdoor space, a patio, deck, small lawn or landscape bed must be carefully designed to optimize their functional area. At Independence, we welcome this challenge.

“What a transformation! I can now reach my backyard by a set of classy steps with brick inlay, rather than via wobbly pavers around a tree. The border job was challenging, varied and often over uneven ground, and the results are spectacular. Lining the gravel driveway for over 30 yards makes the entrance to the house classy. Returning two gravel beds to lawn cleaned up the look considerably.”
