What is "hardscaping?"
Hardscaping is a term used to define outdoor living spaces that are constructed out of concrete materials such as pavers, retaining wall block, veneer stone, and similar products. We like to say it’s called “hardscaping,” because it’s “hard” work! Utilizing the latest tools and techniques, we actually make laying pavers look fun and easy.

We have experience!
Kingdom Landscaping started hardscaping in 1998 – that’s 18 years of installing high quality hardscapes! Experience is the best teacher. Three years prior to that, the business focused on lawn care, landscaping, and grounds maintenance.
Because we are a local family-owned and operated business, not a franchise, you can expect the owners to be personally involved in every project. If you have any changes or questions during the construction process, we are able to take care of them immediately.
Don’t let the size of this company fool you. We have installed more than 100,000 square feet of pavers, including commercial projects like Freedom Park in Leesburg, Virginia (8,000 sf); several patios and a drive-thru entrance at a Hilton Garden Inn in Allentown, Pennsylvania (2,500 sf); and Gateway Ministries in Williamsport, Maryland (6,000 sf).

We have training!
As an ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) certified installer, you can rely on Kingdom Landscaping to do an excellent and accurate installation. ICPI is not just another seminar certificate, it is an intense two-day training focused on soil conditions, excavation techniques, stone base compaction, sand setting bed, paver installation and cutting, edge restraints, and more. Each attendee must pass a final test in order to be certified. After certification, CEU credits must be earned on a continual basis to renew the bi-annual certification. Tom Tyler has carried the ICPI certification since 2000.
In addition to ICPI, our employees attend annual educational and training seminars sponsored by EP Henry, Techo-Bloc, Nicolock, Eagle Bay, and Cambridge. We believe that regular continuing education in this industry keeps us abreast of the latest materials, designs, and installation procedures. Because of our growing knowledge and training, we can offer our customers the best design for their backyard paradise. We are easily able to incorporate landscaping and water features into any hardscape project.

The Kingdom Warranty
We offer a three-year installation warranty covering our workmanship. If your new pavement system is going to fail, it will typically fail within the first “freeze and thaw” cycle here in the Mid-Atlantic region. However, because we spend the appropriate amount of time on stone base installation and compaction, we will guarantee our workmanship for a three-year period. That’s three seasons of freeze and thaw!
Manufacturers carry their own product warranties. Read their warranty information carefully. Some warranties are voided if the pavers are not installed properly according to ICPI specifications. For example, pavers should never be installed on stone dust! Whether you choose to work with Kingdom or another hardscape company, always be sure to hire an ICPI certified installer.
Kingdom Landscaping is pleased to accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express in addition to cash and personal checks. We conveniently carry a "SQUARE" Reader with us so we can process your payments on site and email a receipt to you immediately. However, when choosing to pay by credit card, we do not allow any other discounts or coupons to be applied to the project.
