Professional Hardscaping Design

Your beautiful Portland, Oregon landscape provides a great space for your family to gather and enjoy the fresh outdoor air. Unfortunately, if you don’t have all the right accommodations, you may find that you spend little time outside when you’re home. When the space inside your home provides comfy lounging spots, easy access to snacks, and everything else that makes you comfortable, it’s unlikely that your family will be rushing outside. Luckily, your outdoor space can be comfortable, too. Hardscaping design and installation from Simple Lawns & Landscape Design can provide your family with customized space that makes spending time outdoors practically irresistible.

We had a good experience with Simple Lawns. After getting a few quotes I just felt like they were the most knowledgeable and made me feel confident. The owner is very responsive as well. I appreciated that they also could get the job done for our backyard in 2 days! Insane!

Thank you, Simple Lawns, for making the process so easy. The price quote was fair. You were able to get us on your calendar quickly. Your workers were professional and knowledgeable about both sprinkler systems and putting in new sod. They were also able to create my vision of a dry riverbed even better than I could have imagined. They were polite and friendly, worked hard and every day cleaned up after themselves, sweeping and hosing down the street and driveway. We were so pleased with them that we are now going to use them to complete the landscaping by delivering and planting trees in our new backyard. I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a landscape company!
Thank you, Dale and Stephanie

We had Simple Lawns landscape a portion of our backyard and it looks amazing! We had two fairly vague requirements, make it look nice and leave room for a vegetable garden, and they did a truly wonderful job. Both David and Eddie were knowledgeable about what plants and features would look best in our yard, were communicative throughout the process, worked within our budget, and were very thorough. We will be hiring them again to finish the rest of the yard

Simple Lawns, did an awesome job cleaning up and fixing things. The lawn was a mess, but they made it look super neat and tidy. Eduardo and his team also did great with the construction work, making everything look good and solid. What’s cool about Simple Lawns is how they keep you in the loop and sort out any issues quickly. If you need someone for your lawn, Simple Lawns, especially with Eduardo, is a solid pick.

A Variety Of Hardscaping Features To Suit Your Unique Landscape

Hardscapes are the manmade elements of your landscape that work to make it more functional and comfortable. These useful features can include anything from walkways and retaining walls, to patios, decks, water features, and anything else you can imagine. Simple Lawns & Landscape Design is a full-service landscaping company with the tools and experience to complete your entire landscaping project from vision to completion. Whether you know exactly what you want, or could use some inspiration, we can help you design and install the hardscape that will make your outdoor space feel like a luxury.

Whether you want a few simple changes to make your space more comfortable, or a complete outdoor living transformation, we can design and create customized hardscapes to fit your unique landscape. Maybe you’ve always wanted a deck for the family to spend lazy summer afternoons outdoors. Perhaps, you dream of a patio complete with a fire pit or dining space. No matter what you’re looking for, our expert team can help. Here are a few of the most popular hardscaping elements our customers enjoy.


Water features


Flowing waterfalls, eye-catching fountains, and tranquil ponds create a beautiful focal point on your landscape. All too often, residential customers think their property isn't large enough or suited for water features. Our team can custom design a water feature you'll love that's designed to fit exactly where you want it.


Retaining Walls And Rock Work


Retaining walls can help you avoid erosion issues and add a majestic touch to your landscape.Rock or brick walls make a fantastic border for beautiful gardens. They can also create additional seating, attractively flank steps and walkways, and add character to your landscape while providing function. They are a great way to deal with steep slopes and uneven terrain


Walkways And Steps


All too often, steep portions of your landscape fall out of use because they're difficult to navigate and hard to take care of. Walkways and steps designed for your unique landscape help you access difficult areas and keep your grass green and healthy.


Patios, Pergolas, And Decks


Comfort is king when it comes to spaces that allow you to relax outdoors. If you've always dreamed of a paver or flagstone patio, or a large deck to accommodate your entire family, we can deliver the comfortable space you need. Patios and decks are the spaces that give your outdoor space that vacation-like feel and make your family and quests comfortable throughout the seasons. Adding outdoor living features to these spaces may make you want to stay outdoors all the time!

Our Process Is Built On Consistent Communication

As a property owner, making major changes to your landscape can be a little intimidating. Inviting a group of strangers onto your property can feel like a leap of faith that leaves you in the dark until the project is complete. We want our customers to feel comfortable (and even excited) about the entire process. That’s why we provide frequent communication and keep you informed with as many details as possible. Here’s what you can expect when you contact Simple Lawns to take care of your landscaping project.


1. YOU CONTACT US WITH THE DETAILS OF YOUR PROJECT.

Fill out the form on our website to share some information about your property and the type of work you'd like completed. After reviewing the details on your submitted form, we get back to you within one business day to schedule an appointment, usually about a week out. We'll email you a pre-meeting document, so you'll know what to expect.


2. DESIGN CONSULTATION.

Your landscape designer will meet you at your property, discuss your wishes for the project, take measurements and record detailed notes about your property and project wish list. The designer you meet for the consultation will be your primary point of contact and project manager for the duration of your project.


3. PERSONALIZED DESIGN BID.

Within 24 hours of your on-site consultation, we'll send you a personalized design bid. The average project is around $1,500, depending on the size of your project. Payment for landscape design is due upfront. Upon acceptance of the bid, you'll receive a contract that you can sign online. Once the contract is signed, we get started on your design right away. You receive your initial design within 2-4 weeks. The design is to spec with a booklet of all details including material choices and layout including your drainage, hardscaping, irrigation, and more. One round of revisions is available, if necessary, to perfect your design.


4. LANDSCAPE INSTALLATION BID & AGREEMENT.

Around 1-2 weeks after your design is approved, you'll receive your landscape installation bid & agreement. A 50% deposit is required at this time to secure materials and schedule the crew.


5. WORK BEGINS

After all the paperwork is signed, our maintenance or construction crew begins work on your property. The landscape installation phase typically takes about a month, depending on the time of year. We'll show up daily (weather permitting) to work on your project until completion.


6. IT'S TIME FOR THE BIG REVEAL!

When your project is complete, we'll walk the property together to ensure you're delighted with every detail. Final payment is due at this time.


7. WE STAND BEHIND OUR WORK.

We stand behind our work with a 5-year warranty on hardscapes (installation defects), 1-year warranty on irrigation, and 90 days on plantings that are irrigated. We also offer customized maintenance plans to fit your needs. If you choose a maintenance plan, your planting warranty will be covered for 1 year.
