Professional Hardscaping

Hardscaping Services

Hardscaping is the art of blending elements like stone, wood, and plants to create a textured outdoor space that is both functional and fetching, a combination worth two green thumbs up.

There are many ways to beautify the outside of your Tampa Bay area home or office, but one of the most functional of those options is paver installation.

With added stones and masonry as practical yet ornamental elements for your exterior, you can benefit from the natural and sophisticated vibe that they give landscaping.

There are so many ways bricks, stones, and other materials can be used to create a custom design, and your options are endless.

Professor Green Thumb’s
Hardscape Designs and Installation Services

At Professor Green Thumb, our landscape designers specialize in creating a unique style just for your Tampa Bay home. You want your landscaping to look nice, but you also want to draw a little special attention to your home with the extraordinary. With our help, we can make that possible!

Paver Installation Projects

There are endless ways you can incorporate pavers into your residential or commercial space. Think about using masonry to add:

  • Patios
  • Driveways
  • Walkways
  • Fireplaces and fire pits
  • Outdoor kitchens
  • Pool decks
  • Garden borders
  • And more

Already have pavers? Let us pressure wash, re-sand, and seal them for you to give them a fresh, just-like-new look.


If you are considering paver installation, you have more than likely visited a home improvement store looking for potential ideas and designs. You may even be considering taking a DIY route. DIY can be great, but odds are something will not turn out exactly like you wanted it to; with projects like these, it takes a lot more than most people think to get that perfectly uniform, level surface that everyone covets.

Instead of risking your time, money, and effort on doing it yourself, consult the pros— if you are worried about cost, it is actually most often cost-efficient to hire a service because we can acquire bulk materials at wholesale prices, and we already have our own equipment. In the long run, you will save money as well as your back from all of that bending over.

Materials and Styles

When it comes to paver installation and the styles available, such as bricks, cobblestone, curbing, blocks, step and risers, wall blocks and caps, and more, there are many different materials from which to choose. Many Tampa Bay area residents enjoy using:

  • Brick
  • Concrete
  • Granite
  • Mortar
  • Stones
  • Travertine
  • And more

Customized Design for Residential and Commercial Properties

To get a better understanding of which material will work best for your paver installation project, you can consult with one of our experts. From how they weather to their look and feel, each substance is a little different, and often just seeing a product in person will give you all you need to know to make your decision.

Certain stones and materials work better for particular paver installation projects, such as backyard pathways that see a moderate amount of foot traffic versus hotel garden walkways that get a lot of use on a daily basis in St. Petersburg. You may also want to take the surroundings into consideration; if you are building a pool deck with pavers, you may want to select a smoother finish since people are likely to be walking barefoot on the surface.

We Help You Be a Nice Neighbor


Whether you need a new fence to keep the kids and dogs safe, or you would like a little privacy, we can help. Using many sizes and styles of vinyl or wood fencing, Professor Green Thumb can enhance the look you want in your front or backyard. The variety of our supplies allows you to personalize your color and finish, giving you a unique look that is far from cookie-cutter.

Types of Fences

What we find surprises most St. Petersburg area clients is just how many choices they have when it comes to fence installation. From links to gates to post heads, there are nearly infinite ways you can customize your construction to fit your needs and tastes. Even going past the look of the structure, you can choose amongst different materials based on the level of care, maintenance, and sturdiness that you require.

A few of the different materials that you can choose from for the basic construction include:

  • Metal
  • Wood
  • PVC/vinyl

On The Fence?

If you are considering fence installation in the Tampa Bay area, you want to make sure that you are aware of all of your options so that you can get exactly what you want. Whether it is for commercial or residential purposes, choosing the right barrier for your property can make a tremendous difference in appearance and functionality, as well as the message you give to others. 

Read on to discover what Professor Green Thumb has to offer as well as how we can make sure your home or office is protected by the best fence possible.

There are pros and cons for each material. Here we will walk you through the upsides and downsides of each.

Metal Fences

Metal, like chain link, is very effective for keeping kids and pets in the yard while keeping unwanted critters and intruders out. As a safety measure, it excels, and it stands up to weather of all kinds. Many do not like the look of chain-link though, and for some neighborhoods in the bay area, they go against Homeowner’s Association code.

Wood Fences

Wood is one of the most “classic” styles of yard barrier, and for that reason, many clients in St. Petersburg choose it for their fence installation. It is also excellent as a privacy barrier, as the wood panels can be formed to create a seamless wall (shadowbox panels), preventing you from looking out over an unsightly highway or drab parking lot.

PVC or Vinyl Fences

PVC and vinyl are incredibly popular materials for a good reason: they are attractive (get that perfect white picket fence look!), weather resistant, and easy to maintain. It comes in a variety of finishes and colors; if you like the look of wood but do not want the upkeep and maintenance associated with it, you can still get the desired appearance with vinyl.

Fence Accessories and Extras

When you are deciding your plan of action for your fence installation in St. Petersburg, or surrounding areas, you need to consider more than just the type of material you want to construct. There are a number of accessories that you can use, including:

  • Posts (end posts, corner posts, and line posts)
  • Gates and latches
  • Rails (to support the panels)

You want to make sure that your enclosure has a nice, seamless look. In order to do that, you should make sure that you get the gate, latches, and other accessories at the same time of your fence installation— you do not want to wait only to find out that the manufacturer no longer makes the matching product!

    I just had a patio, pathway and gardens installed on three sides of my home. A huge job and Professor Green Thumb did all of this in three weeks and for a reasonable price. They sent the same people every day so I knew who was coming. They were punctual … More and polite. Cleaned up every day leaving no trash at all. I was exceedingly pleased with their service and will surely hire them for maintenance. Thank you GREEN THUMB because I do not have a green thumb at all.

    Excellent experience with Professor Green Thumb. Shannon was friendly and extremely knowledgable. He gave us a professional design and provided us with great ideas to further the concept we wanted for our landscaping. His team was punctual and always … More cleaned up at the end of the work day. Highly recommended.
