From Our Website
read moreMastercare Hardscapes & Concrete Art has existed since 1987, starting out as a landscape firm. In 1998, we changed our focus to landscape construction, retaining wall & paver installations, outdoor fireplaces, & low voltage night lighting, which continues to this day. With 10's of 1000th's Square Footage of retaining walls & pavers installed, I believe we have unmatched experience, to handle any situation. I often give a homeowner an idea no one else has given them. We also supply digital images, to show our customer how their project will look at completion, before it even gets started.
Decorative Concrete Overlays
read moreWorn, damaged concrete can often be overlayed with a thin layer of portland cement, polymer enhanced material, that are designed to be applied in thin layers, both inside & out. We have time tested the products we use against the freeze/thaw cycles we experience here in the Northeast. These products also cure to be harder than the original concrete they are going over & have proven to be very durable. Overlays are only for aesthetic, decorative purposes, & will not repair a structural problem. They are only as strong as what's underneath them.

I explained the process of using Lavina, SASE, or other manufacturers diamond tooling under my Lavina X20 planetary concrete grinder/polishing machine. A 220V power supply would be needed, which usually can come from an electric dryer outlet, but there are other means to get power if this isn't available. Depending on the concrete's condition, I will start with 30 grit or 50 grit metal bond diamond tools, to achieve the initial cut of the concrete surface.
read moreManufactured block systems, (also known as Segmental Retaining Walls) in many cases, are the best choice for retaining soil to gain more level space. Segmental retaining walls require less time time & labor than stone walls, thus, are more economical than stone wall systems, without height restrictions. Segmental retaining walls come in many shapes, sizes, & colors, but the construction technique for each system is basically the same. Excavate the area where the wall is to be built, leaving plenty of space for your crushed stone leveling/base block pad, drain pipe, & backfill material.
read moreHardscaping refers to anything in a landscape that isn't a plant. These can be walls, ponds, low voltage lighting, stairs, fire pits, arbors, edging, drainage, and of course, pavers. Our wall work is in different sections of this site, so here we will concentrate on pavers. Pavers have been around since the Romans. Then they were made from stone, granite or clay, which still exist, but now concrete pavers are the norm. Bricks are still made from clay but aren't as suitable as pavers for pavements.
