Why Us

Riverside custom hardscapes history


Originally‌ ‌known‌ ‌as‌ ‌Daniel’s‌ ‌Lawn‌ ‌Care‌ ‌when‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌started‌ ‌by‌ ‌Daniel‌ ‌Bradshaw‌ ‌in‌ ‌2005,‌ ‌the‌ ‌business‌ ‌began‌ ‌by‌ ‌providing‌ ‌lawn‌ ‌maintenance‌ ‌primarily‌ ‌for‌ ‌friends‌ ‌and‌ ‌family.‌ ‌In‌ ‌January‌ ‌2010,‌ ‌the‌ ‌company‌ ‌was‌ ‌rebranded‌ ‌as‌ ‌Appomattox‌ ‌River‌ ‌Landscapes,‌ LLC, ‌expanding‌ ‌its‌ ‌services‌ ‌to‌ ‌include‌ ‌landscaping.‌

Earning‌ ‌his‌ ‌Landscape‌ ‌Design‌ ‌Professional‌ ‌Certificate‌ ‌from‌ ‌the‌ ‌University‌ ‌of‌ ‌Richmond‌ ‌in‌ ‌2012,‌ ‌Daniel‌ ‌began‌ ‌focusing‌ ‌on‌ ‌landscape‌ ‌and‌ ‌hardscape‌ ‌design‌ ‌and‌ ‌installation‌ ‌services.‌

Few‌ ‌certified‌ ‌landscape‌ ‌designers‌ ‌in‌ ‌Central‌ ‌Virginia‌ ‌offer‌ ‌installation‌ ‌services.‌

We‌ ‌do!‌ ‌Because‌ ‌we‌ ‌not‌ ‌only‌ ‌create‌ ‌designs‌ ‌but‌ ‌also‌ ‌install‌ ‌them,‌ ‌our‌ ‌customers‌ ‌deal‌ ‌with‌ ‌only‌ ‌one‌ ‌company‌ ‌from‌ ‌concept‌ ‌to‌ ‌completion.‌


Our team takes great pride in our work. Because you have given us the privilege of working at your home, we go the extra mile by cleaning up our tools and returning them to our onsite enclosed trailer at the end of each day. We also strive to keep our equipment and materials out of your way as much as possible.

We show up every morning in clean company uniforms in order to show the same professionalism in our appearance as we do with everything else. None of our team members smoke, so there won’t be any cigarette butts lying around or the smell floating through the air.

Every member of our team is personable and friendly and will do everything in their power to accommodate your needs and requests to minimize the inconvenience of having an active work zone on your property.

Beautiful, Functional, Unique

Nobody likes having the same old thing that everyone else has. When you work with Riverside Custom Hardscapes, LLC,  to design your outdoor living area, you are getting something totally unique.

We are proud that we haven’t installed any two projects that look anything alike. So if you are looking for that unique touch that will have all your neighbors and friends green with envy, you have come to the right place.

The ARL Customer Experience

Visualizing Your Landscape Design

We start by capturing your vision with specific questions that help us identify your ideas, what you need functionally, and what issues need to be resolved. This is your home and it is important that every detail of your outdoor living area is a reflection of you. To help you visualize your new outdoor space, our design software enables us to show you 3D images of your new backyard.

Turning the Plan Into Reality

Once we begin the construction phase of the project, our goal is to complete it as quickly as weather will allow. Nobody likes having a project drag out which is why once we start a project, we don’t leave until it is completed. During construction, we will do everything in our power to minimize the inconvenience of having an active work zone on your property. If an unforeseen issue arises, we will work with you to resolve it in a way that maintains quality and impacts the budget as little as possible.

Ensuring Complete Satisfaction

After the finishing touches are complete and everything has been cleaned up, we will walk the property with you to make sure that every detail meets your satisfaction. At this time, we will also share important information about long term care to preserve the beauty of your new landscape and/or hardscape.


Nobody likes working with a person or company that is hard to reach or difficult to communicate with. It is one of our fundamental values to always be easy to reach and quick to respond. During construction, we will keep you updated about what’s going on and the project timeline. Lastly, if there are any questions or issues after we have completed the project, we will be quick to follow up and address them.



We are proud to be certified hardscape installers having received our certification from the Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute which is the recognized leader for the hardscape industry in North America. Because we go the extra mile in the quality and attention to detail in our installation process, we offer a 25 year warranty on all our hardscape projects. To date, we have not had to perform a single warranty repair on any of our projects.


Case Studies

Birch Point Hardscape Installation

Birch Point

This project is a great example of how a creative design can bring the “wow” factor to small spaces as well as big ones. The homeowner wanted a bigger patio, but they got so much more.

Flag Station Hardscape Installation

Flag Station

After a series of projects that spanned 30+ years, this couple decided that it was time to add an outdoor living area to their beautiful home. We assisted them by listening to their needs which allowed us to create a large outdoor living space that surpassed their expectations.

St. Ives Hardscape Installation

It is amazing how much you can do with a small space! Despite several challenges, we were able to create a design that was both very functional in meeting the homeowners' needs, and also included some very attractive design features.
