August 30, 2023

In the heart of Richmond, where the historic meets the modern, lies a canvas of possibilities waiting to be transformed. At Smith Evergreen, nestled amidst the charm of Richmond, we're here to unveil the exciting world of unconventional concrete applications. 

Join us on a journey where the ordinary becomes extraordinary and the versatility of concrete takes on new dimensions, elevating landscapes in ways you never imagined.

Beyond the Traditional

Concrete as Art:

Concrete is not just a utilitarian material; it's a medium for creativity. With expert craftsmanship, it can be sculpted and molded into stunning artistic features that add visual intrigue to your landscape. From custom benches to artistic stepping stones, concrete becomes an artful expression of your unique style.

Vertical Gardens:

Imagine a vertical garden blooming with vibrant flora, anchored by concrete planters. These vertical green spaces not only beautify your surroundings but also utilize concrete's durability to provide a sturdy foundation for your botanical oasis.

Playful Hardscapes

Concrete Ping Pong Tables:

Elevate your outdoor entertainment with a concrete ping pong table. Durable, weather-resistant, and adding an unexpected twist to your outdoor space, these tables create a playful atmosphere where friendly matches can be enjoyed under the sun.

Chessboard Courtyards:

Transform your courtyard into a life-sized chessboard with alternating concrete pavers. This creative touch not only adds character but also invites friendly competition and leisurely contemplation.

Eclectic Seating

Curved Concrete Benches:

Concrete's adaptability allows for the creation of curved and meandering benches that complement your landscape's natural flow. These seating arrangements become functional art pieces, inviting moments of relaxation and reflection.

Firepit Perches:

Enhance your firepit area with custom concrete seating that encircles the warmth. These integrated seats not only provide comfort but also create a cozy gathering space where stories and laughter are shared.

Captivating Water Features

Cascading Concrete Fountains:

Concrete can be sculpted into intricate fountains that mimic the soothing sound of cascading water. These features become focal points, transforming your outdoor space into a tranquil retreat.

Reflective Concrete Ponds:

Concrete ponds can be designed with reflective surfaces that mirror the sky, surrounding greenery, and architectural elements. These ponds add a touch of serenity and elegance to your landscape.

As the James River winds its way through the heart of Richmond, so too can the creativity of concrete flow through your landscape. 

Smith Evergreen believes in pushing the boundaries of design and functionality. Contact us today to explore the unconventional world of concrete applications that can elevate your Richmond property to new heights.
