When we were looking to build our patio and fix our yard’s drainage issue, we were very nervous going into the hardscape process. We saved for a long time and wanted to get our money’s worth. We were careful because in the past, we’ve had different crews around Nashville over-promising, under-delivering and leaving us feeling ripped off. After many bids and a bunch of questions, we chose to go with Philip. He answered all of our questions and presented the best plan at a price
that was right under our budget.

When it came time to work, they went above and beyond. They cleared out brush and tree that needed to be removed that weren’t even part of their bid. The patio itself is the beautiful flagstone patio we always wanted. Once the grass comes up and we plant around the patio, we look forward to entertaining friends and family. I’m very pleased with the work that Philip and his crew did for us and look forward to saving for the next project.

"Philip Byard and his crew just redid by backyard. I had a tall stone wall that I thought could be repaired. Philip explained why that would not be a good idea, as the wall was unstable. They took down the wall, rebuilt the part that was stable, added a water feature and landscaping. It looks awesome and I don't miss the wall one bit. They are hard working, timely, do what they say they will do. As well as, very knowledgeable and creative. I would highly recommend them for any type of landscaping."Carol L.


"During the summer of 2014, we used Hardscapes by the Yard to install a boulder retaining wall, some natural stone steps, and a patio on our new construction home. This was a pretty big project for us. In short, we are very pleased with the outcome and would recommend this company without hesitation. The start of the process was more lengthy than it could have been due to the approval process of the neighborhood Homeowner Association. It took us several weeks to work through the different design ideas and make decisions on how we wanted everything to look. The owner was very patient, helpful, and willing to make a couple of extra trips to the site as we worked through the process. The experience continued to be great once the work was underway. The team really helped with those inevitable things that weren't foreseen at the beginning. They showed up as agreed, worked hard, went the extra mile in every aspect of the job. The owner of the company was also on site working. The work was completed on time and exactly on our agreed budget. Overall, a great experience."
