BEAUTY & FUNCTION ARE NOT NECESSARILY MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE
Hardscaping is an essential element of any successful landscape design project - it is the foundation of any great landscape project.
Dragonfly Landscape Design has more than a decade of experience incorporating hand-chiseled materials, imported stones, and other unique quarried resources into each and every project, ensuring that we exceed (and maybe even transcend) our clients’ expectations. Our team’s masonry masterpieces are both aesthetically pleasing and built to last - created from the finest and most durable materials available, providing a solid foundation (or a punctuating personal touch) for all of your landscaping dreams.
Our hardscape design work complements existing architecture with uniquely crafted walkways, stacked-stone or faced garden walls and retaining walls, patios, driveways, and other hardscape features. Our team also adheres to the highest construction standards and local building codes while creating stonework with innovative designs and superior craftsmanship. From landscaping stone walls to ornate pillars, masonry is a durable, adaptable, and visually appealing medium that will make visitors stop and study both form and function, serving as an enduring reminder of why you fell in love with your home and garden in the first place.

Stone Walls Create Elevations & Spaces, not Boundaries
Stone walls require minimal maintenance and can vary in size, shape, color, and texture. They are one of many decorative, yet functional and protective features that can be added to your home’s outdoor environment and landscape, potentially preventing erosion, slope failures, flooding, and other damage. In addition to warding off damage to surrounding structures and landscaping, stone walls can provide an eco-friendly and cost-effective means of adding value to your home by creating and supporting elevations, and defining your pool, patio, garden, and/or backyard spaces. Designed and constructed by our team of experts, our landscape retaining walls and garden walls are structurally sound as well as visually pleasing.
Patios and Courtyards Expand your Living Space
Roasting marshmallows. Grilling kabobs. Blowing bubbles with the kids. Relaxing with a glass of wine. There is no better way to enhance your enjoyment of your backyard than by adding a new custom patio to host all of these activities. Patios are a low-maintenance means of expanding your home’s living and entertaining spaces. Often constructed of stone or pavers, patios are durable and versatile and can be built to virtually any specification, shape, or size in any backyard or courtyard location. Thanks to advancements in materials and processes, patios can take on nearly any color of the rainbow. And, because they eliminate the need for stains or sealers, patios are an environmentally-friendly option as well.
At Dragonfly Landscape Design, each patio we design incorporates the surrounding elements of your landscape and can incorporate special features such as pool coping, outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, water features, garden ornaments, pergolas, and much, much more. We can even surround your patio (or fire pit) with attractive low walls that also function as benches!
Walkways and Pathways should do more than get you from Point A to Point B
While their purpose might be entirely functional, landscaping walkways provide much more than traffic control. Walkways can also be artistic, adding dimension and character (or even an element of whimsy) to your outdoor environment. Like the gardens, plantings, and pottery populating your exterior design, walkways are an essential element of a cohesive whole, and can be customized in practically any way, from material to color to size.
Driveway Curbing & Aprons - Almost a Necessity
Timeless, classic, and highly functional, Belgium block curbing is almost a necessity in the Hamptons where we struggle to keep driveway gravel IN the driveway. In addition to providing a visually appealing upscale look, Belgium block is virtually indestructible if you (or the kids) accidentally drive over it. For those who WANT to drive over it, we can even position it permanently on an angle, making it mountable for both intentional and accidental driving on the lawn.
Driveway Landings offer a Greeting
Your driveway landing can have many (or all) of the following purposes. It may be where you:
- Unpack groceries
- Greet your guests with pride
- Unwind as you arrive and start to feel the aura of your sanctuary take over
- Celebrate that your heels don’t sink into the gravel (or into the lawn) as you exit your car
But, in all cases, masonry landings create an amazing, durable, and economical transition from driveway to entry and can be constructed from masonry materials selected to complement those already installed at your home.
Entry Columns Set the Stage
You know a house is going to be lovely when you pull through a set of perfectly paired entry columns with lights atop (and maybe a fancy automatic gate too). You can feel the anticipation as you pull in and know your destination is seconds away. Everyone should feel this feeling - a gracious driveway entry does not have to be on your wishlist. Just ask and we’ll start the permit process for you.
Custom Driveways Make First Impressions Count
While not possible for everyone (think lot coverage), nothing makes a first impression like a fully custom stone or paver driveway installed as your personal red carpet, welcoming both you and your guests to your front door. In addition to conveying a grand sense of welcome, masonry driveways elicit feelings of grace, astonishment, peace, comfort, and/or anticipation, and can be complemented with any number of special features, from fountains to furniture and more.
Count on us to bring your vision to life
Countless stone selection options are available to extend your entertaining areas, while complementing your Hamptons home AND your personal style. From fascia materials and stucco, to natural stone slabs, irregular flagstone, and river rock, to man-made brick, concrete, and paver products - it’s what we do with your vision and these materials that will give your outdoor living space an individual look, designed specifically for you. Whatever your personal preferences, masonry will add to the attractiveness of your home while increasing its value with durability that will last for decades.
