The key to a fabulous yet functional landscape plan is defining the space. Paths, patios and walls help you do just that. We can work with you to create the hardscape of your dreams.
Fireplaces & Fire Pits
It’s been true for centuries – a part of our makeup we just can’t deny: Nothing draws people in like the light and warmth of a fire. There’s just something irresistible about it, whether you’re five or ninety-five. Adding a fire pit or fireplace to your outdoor living space is a dramatic way to bring warmth, charm and ambience – the perfect spot to cozy up and share a story, a smile… or a S’more.
Dragonfly Landscapes knows fireplaces, pits, and all parts therein. Our knowledge and understanding of stone types and masonry styles will ensure that your fireplace or fire pit fits perfectly with your outdoor aesthetic, both in terms of style and scale. We integrate these signature elements into existing landscapes, or create an entirely new one based on a place for your vision. Count on Dragonfly to manage every aspect of the design and installation.
A well-designed patio can be the cornerstone of your backyard oasis. This common feature can, in the hands of a talented designer, transform a yard – taking it from ordinary to extraordinary. Mixing shapes, materials, textures and scale brings drama and novelty to your outdoor space, resulting in a quiet little refuge.
Dragonfly’s patio designs go beyond the surface and create patios that will anchor your landscape. Patios tend to be one of the largest portions of a project – in terms of both effort and expense. You can count on us to make sure the investment is one that lasts. We will work with you to choose pavers, stone, or other substrate to fit your style and budget. Our experienced installers prepare and painstakingly lay the materials. The end product? A stunning patio that lasts for ages.
Dragonfly’s Expertise in Patios Includes: concrete pavers, natural flagstone, architectural slabs, masonry patios, decorative concrete, and aggregate concrete.
Walkways and Driveways
You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. A welcoming walkway is a sure-fire way to make a positive first impression. Combined with a well-designed driveway, it can add tremendous curb appeal to your house.
Dragonfly’s landscape designs bring style and design to what some might deem a merely functional or utilitarian feature: driveways/walkways. Using high quality materials that coordinate with and complement your home’s exterior and landscape, our design will create functional yet beautiful surfaces you can be proud of.
Dragonfly’s Expertise in Walkways and Driveways Includes: flagstone, slate, bluestone, architectural slabs, concrete pavers, aggregate concrete, mortared brick, custom stone paving, and decorative concrete.
Rock and Stone Walls
Whether your property sits on a steep slope in the Huntley Hills, a hilly yard in Morningside, or a gentle slope in Atlanta’s East Side, chances are you’re working with a grade change in your landscape. Functional, yet attractive, rock and retaining walls help create level tiers, while adding structure and dimension to almost any landscape. Rock and retaining walls can also be used to create unique landscape features, like raised flower beds, and seating areas for patios and fire pits.
Dragonfly Landscapes selects from a variety of rock and retaining wall materials to create the perfect look, while also meeting the structural needs of your landscape wall. Whether you’re looking for the rustic drama of a large boulder or the structured look of a pre-formed segmented wall – or maybe the free-flowering appeal of a dry-stack wall – we can help you select the rock type and wall design that will fit your aesthetic and your budget.
Dragonfly’s Rock and Stone Walls Include: custom Designs and masonry walls, natural stacked stone walls, green walls, pre-formed block and segmented retaining wall, pre-cast and custom courtyard wall, erosion Control and grade mitigation.
Fountains, Ponds, & Rain Gardens
It’s a simple recipe: Add water, generate calm. Water features play a dramatic role in any landscape – providing visual beauty, sparkling movement, and the soothing sound of flowing water. Incorporating the natural element of water in your garden provides a wellspring of calm and reflection in an otherwise hectic life.
Dragonfly Landscapes & Gardens offers the vision, technical expertise, and artistic craftsmanship to create water features in a myriad of styles. A waterfall and stream provide a symphony of sound. A reflection pool or Koi pond instills a tranquil element to your garden. Our creativity and knowledge of construction offers the ability to build ‘that experience’ – no matter what that experience is.
Dragonfly’s Water Feature Expertise Includes: naturalized streams and ponds, re-circulating garden fountains and bubblers, rain gardens, Koi ponds, waterfalls and bioswales.
