The space outside your home is a special space. It is where neighbors come together. It is where you share moments and create memories with the people you love. Without hardscape, landscaping can often fall flat. If the landscape is made up of all the softscape such as the trees, plants and other organic materials, the hardscape is made up of the wood, concrete, brick, and stone. It takes a true craftsman with design skills to balance color, topography, and materials to produce a true outdoor harmony. Our team of hardscape professionals, with over 20 years of experience, will bring all these skills to your project.
Your driveway or walkway is the first place many people see when they come to your home. It is where your guests enter, you wait for your children to come home and have impromptu conversations with the neighbors. Hardscapes, designed and installed by Mike’s Clean Cut Landscaping Inc, can put the finishing touches to creating a warm and welcoming environment every time you come home.
Your patio is where sun-soaked summer days turn in to relaxing evenings and we are here to help turn your backyard in to your own oasis. It is a key part of your summer lifestyle, and whether you are looking for a ground level patio, raised patio or pool deck, we will work with you to integrate all the components of your landscape and hardscape to create harmony.
Vertical features add a third dimension to reflect the way you live. Boulder and retaining walls are the perfect complement to your walkways, patios, outdoor kitchens, and more. Proper design and placement of retaining walls around your landscape are not only aesthetically pleasing, but can provide additional seating areas for you and your guests.
Outdoor living spaces often include fireplaces, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, and grills or a combination of the above. Many people use their backyards as an additional space to relax and spend time with family and friends. Whether you are entertaining a group or relaxing with your family, our staff has your outdoor living needs covered with ideas and designs to fit any budget. Our living spaces create a place to experience the warmth of family and friends, away from the world’s distractions.
Natural Stone has established its place as the most preferred choice of materials for homeowners, contractors, and businesses. It has unmatched beauty and strength, and the ability to withstand the test of time. Natural stone steps, patios, and entryways are a beautiful addition to any landscape while providing a great first impression and genuine value to your property.
Nothing says cozy night better than sitting around a fire with friends and family. An outdoor fireplace, fire bowl, or fire pit is a great way to enhance the design and enjoyment of your outdoor living area.
There are a wide variety of options when it comes to choosing a fire feature — from pre-manufactured kits, to custom designs to fit your unique style and taste. Fire pits can be built with limestone, bricks, or custom natural stone veneers. Fire bowls provide an aesthetic feature during the day, and warmth and light during after the sun goes down.
Your backyard can be transformed into your dreamscape, your private vacationland, and your personal oasis by incorporating a water feature into your landscape. Water features have the power to transform an ordinary garden into a delightful sanctuary. Whether it is a large pond, a waterfall, or a small fountain, water brings both charm and dimension into your landscape. Our goal is to create natural- looking features that appear to have always existed in their surrounding landscape.
As with any investment, routine maintenance and repairs are required to keep your oasis in pristine condition. Our staff and crew can repair, seal, power-wash, clean and maintain your hardscape to ensure it always looks as beautiful as the first day that they were installed.
Pavers are a flexible system that allow for movement in the freezing and thawing cycles of harsh Michigan season, and are almost indestructible. However, they do require basic maintenance, and occasionally, shifting does occur. Pavers are unique to other pavement options in that they can be lifted and re-laid at a minimal cost.
All exposed brick pavers require routine maintenance to protect them from sun exposure, dirt and everyday spills that happen over time. Our experienced staff has the knowledge and technology to clean your bricks and restore them to their natural beauty. Sealer acts as a waterproofing agent to the pavers porous surface and prevents most stains from soaking in to the brick. We offer both natural sealers and wet sealants to meet your design preferences.
Similar to pavers, cleaning and sealing your decorative concrete should be preformed on a regular basis to help prevent fading from the natural wear and tear over time. The frequency of maintenance truly depends on the location of the concrete as well as the traffic patterns and element exposure. We offer a range of sealants to give you the look you desire and to help protect your investment.
Brick pavers joints may lose their sand over time from natural elements such as weeds, heavy rains or winds. Before re-sanding joints, the pavers and joints must be cleaned of all debris. We offer both fine grain sand, as well as polymeric sand, depending on your needs.
