Hardscape & Structures

Bring your dream outdoor living space to life with R&D Landscape.

What does your dream outdoor living space look like? A winding walkway through your blooming garden, a grand entrance leading to your front door, or a custom patio with built-in firepit for entertaining family and friends? You name it, we can do it. At R&D Landscape, we are dedicated to helping our customers spend more time outside with usable, enjoyable outdoor living spaces.

Hardscape & Structure Services

R&D Landscape of Lansing, Michigan was founded by two Michigan State University Horticulture and Landscape Design graduates who truly love the outdoors and making it accessible and fun for our customers. Sometimes hardscapes are designed for enjoyment – like a patio for entertaining or a walkway through your garden. Other times, they are a necessity and a preventative measure, taken to avoid safety concerns or small issues with your home that have the potential to become huge problems over time.

Our team has the perfect combination of functional know-how and creative genius, allowing us to design and install hardscapes and outdoor structures, including retaining walls, steps, decks, patios, and custom solutions that allow you to enjoy your space while having peace of mind. We are certified in retaining wall construction, so you know you’ll be in good hands with R&D Landscape!

How it Works

Each project starts with an initial consultation to get acquainted, discuss your goals, and identify any needs that should be addressed through our hardscape and structure services. After we have an understanding of the project size, we will often provide a design for you to review and an estimate for the project budget and timeline. Once we get to work, it can take a couple of days to just few short months before you’re sitting back and enjoying your new outdoor living space.

Why R&D Landscape?

We love this stuff. Just as your home and interior design are often a reflection of who you are, so should be your outdoor living space. R&D Landscape is founded not only on sharing our enjoyment for nature with our customers, but also on our desire to connect with people in our community. The relationships we build allow us the unique ability to craft custom outdoor experiences tailored to our customers as something you can truly enjoy year after year.
