Hardscape Services

Patios and Walkways

A well designed and installed patio can be the backbone bone of your outdoor living area. At Avant we can design and install a stone, paver, or gravel patio that will mesh with the style of your home flawlessly.

Fire Features

Besides providing warmth and entertainment, a fire pit or fireplace can add to the value of the home. A fire pit adds a destination zone to your hardscape installation and a place to enjoy fall in Tennessee. A Fire place can add a sense of elegance to any backyard and a place to gather with your family

Pools Decks and Spas Veneers

When adding a pool or spa to your backyard the hardscape installation can make or break the space. A well design pool blends the pool with hardscape into one giant entertainment zone. A spa takes your pool area to the next level and Avant can install the proper veneer to bring all the elements of the space together

Accents and Retaining Walls

A retaining wall can really open up the space in your backyard or add interest to the front yard. Depending on the need for your wall a retaining wall can also act as a large drainage system as well. An accent wall or seatwall can add quite a bit of seating to a patio space without taking up room like chairs.

Outdoor Kitchens

Bringing your kitchen outside can act as a gather space for family BBQ’s or parties. The options of what can be built into your outdoor kitchen are endless or kept simple. At Avant we build outdoor kitchens from man made materials such as Belgard, Unilock, or Techo-Bloc material. For a more custom feel we can use natural stone veneer such as fieldstone or flagstone.


Masonry whether natural stone or brick can be a showpiece of any hardscape install. Avant employs masons with decades of experience who bring the attention to detail required for our projects. Masonry usually includes any type of hardscape with natural stone and mortar.


Avant constructs stairs on a regular basis from natural stone and man made materials. Adding a set of stairs to a slope to traverse it more easily or making a statement with a grand entrance stairway on a front yard slope can really add value to your home
