Our company can design and install a large variety of hardscape projects, from fountains and reflecting pools to retaining walls and patios. Natural stone steps add function and attractive architectural elements to any home garden.

Drainage is an issue for many homeowners in the Tuscaloosa area. HGD can design and install French drains to eliminate damp spots in your yard or divert water away from your home’s foundation. Proper drainage and irrigation can make your yard and gardens easier to maintain all year round.
HGD is also experienced in installation of commercial property landscaping. St. Francis University Parish was one of our early projects and a drive through campus will give you the opportunity to see their maturing plantings. We also have experience providing landscaping for new and existing apartment and professional office sites.
