Servicing Northern Virginia

A meticulously planned landscape or hardscape design makes a world of difference, and at NRC Landscape Construction, Nick Hanna, our main designer, is a testament to this belief. With a background in the field since the age of 15, Nick has hands-on experience in everything from crafting walkways and patios to constructing extensive outdoor rooms and pools. His deep understanding of installation techniques ensures that our designs are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and practical in real-world scenarios.

Why Experience Matters in Design and Installation

At NRC Landscape Construction, we stand by the principle that proper installation knowledge is key to successful design. A patio may be easy to design, but creating one that functions and flows effectively in use is a different challenge. We’ve observed designs that fail to translate into the final product due to a lack of practical installation knowledge. This is where NRC Landscape Construction excels, pushing the boundaries in design with Nick’s firsthand experience in installing everything he designs. This blend of design and installation expertise is what sets NRC Landscape Construction apart.

Bringing Your Vision to Life

With over 16 years of experience in Landscape Design, NRC Landscape Construction is dedicated to designing a functional pool, patio, or landscape tailored to your specific needs. Depending on your project, we provide detailed 3D designs, plant lists (if applicable), and plan measurements. For those with an HOA, we can scale your design on your county-approved plot, making the process straightforward and hassle-free.

The Importance of a Solid Design Plan

We firmly believe that a well-conceived plan is the foundation of a great landscape. Just like you wouldn’t build a house without plans, the same principle applies to any hardscape and landscape project. A good plan allows for adjustments on paper, which is far easier than making changes once construction has begun. Proper planning is crucial for a beautiful landscape/hardscape project.

Design Tips for Your Outdoor Space

  • Size Considerations: The right size for your patio is crucial. It’s not always about having the largest space; it’s about usability. We assess your needs to ensure the patio is neither too large nor too small, considering future furniture additions and entertaining needs.
  • Steps and Elevations: Adding dimensions with elevations can enhance a patio, especially on properties with varied grades. However, careful placement of steps is essential to avoid hazards and ensure functional space.
  • Landscaping and Lighting: Don’t overlook the impact of landscaping and lighting in your budget. Properly designed, they add ambiance, shade, and visual appeal. Ambient lighting should be sufficient for navigation without the need for spotlights, and features like up lights and path lights can be added for both aesthetics and functionality.
