What Does Hardscape Include?

  1. Excavation for Foundations and Installations: Preparing the site for various hardscape elements.

  3. Property Grading: Leveling and shaping the property to support the installation of hardscapes.
  4. Patio and Driveway Prep: Preparing the base for patios and driveways to ensure longevity and durability.

How much value does hardscaping add?

Hardscaping can significantly enhance the curb appeal and functionality of a property, potentially increasing its value by up to 15%. Well-designed and executed hardscapes like those by Tripp Excavating:

  • Boost Aesthetic Appeal: Improve the visual appeal of your outdoor spaces.
  • Enhance Usability: Create functional areas for entertainment or relaxation.
  • Reduce Maintenance: Minimize the need for regular landscaping upkeep.

What does hardscape paving include?

Hardscape paving at Tripp Excavating includes the creation of durable and aesthetically pleasing surfaces such as:

  1. Stone Driveways: Installation of visually appealing and long-lasting driveways.
  2. Concrete Demolition and Removal: Removing old paving and preparing sites for new installations.
  3. Parking Lot and Shed Prep: Ensuring a solid base for commercial and utility spaces.

What is the difference between hardscape and paving?

While both terms are often used interchangeably, they refer to different aspects of landscaping:

  • Hardscape: Encompasses all non-living elements in landscape design, including woodwork, stonework, and structures.
  • Paving: Specifically refers to the laying of surfaces such as pathways, driveways, and patios. It is a subset of hardscaping focused on flat surfaces.

“We wanted to demolish our fiberglass inground pool and contacted several contractors. Buster of Tripp Excavating provided a very reasonable price for our job. He was a genuine, honest person and was highly professional, too. He knew his job and was very sincere. He is loyal with his customers and did an amazing job. We are very happy with his honesty and the neat job and highly recommend Tripp Excavating.”
“I needed some excavation done to fix some piping, and Tripp Excavating was very responsive. They understood what I needed them to do. They had to go back to the site after the first appointment, but we worked through that and all was well. I had no issues with the outcome of the job, and there were no delays either. The cost was a little more than I expected, but with the effort they put into getting the job done, I understand why it had to cost that much. Overall, I am happy with their service.”

“I had a fairly large pool, enormous deck, and small cabana removed. Tripp Excavating was very patient in navigating the township s permitting process, despite all the regulations they threw at us. Their professionals did the work quickly and neatly. I would highly recommend Tripp to anyone.”
