The Great Outdoors
Specializing in decks, patios, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces and pits, walkways, retaining walls, driveways, and more, the North Shore Hardscapes team unites the comforts of the indoors with the beauty and natural serenity of the outside world.
With projects that are unique, innovative, well-designed, and properly executed, North Shore Hardscapes demonstrates its expertise in the field of hardscape design and construction. The company—started by the Ori family who owns and operates Rosebrook Pools, Inc. in Libertyville—was launched last spring when the family, through their experience with the construction and masonry industry, noticed a significant need for a specialized, comprehensive hardscaping business in the area. Deciding to fill the gap for this type of company on the North Shore, the family members created North Shore Hardscapes.
With more than 60 years background in construction and masonry on the North Shore, the North Shore Hardscapes team is comprised of skilled craftsmen who draw from a wealth of prior experience. As a result, North Shore Hardscapes specializes in virtually every aspect of the yard. From outdoor kitchens, lighting, and patios to walkways, driveways, and retaining walls, the company can tackle just about any creative challenge.
One recent project, for instance, involved a natural stone outdoor pizza oven that was shipped in from Tuscany. To create a complete outdoor living space, a barbeque and refrigerator, as well as an entire closed roof structure with stone columns and automatic screens, supplemented the pizza oven. Intricate projects such as this exemplify the North Shore Hardscapes team’s attention to detail and distinctiveness.
While many companies need to subcontract certain aspects of any given project, North Shore Hardscapes offers a full menu of comprehensive services. From the initial design process through the execution of the hardscape, employees have the knowledge and resources to execute each step of the process. Customers deal directly with Operating Manager Corey Lomoro throughout the entire progression, which creates an ease of process. For Lomoro and his team, the involvement and creativity of the homeowner are very significant.
Ingenuity and expertise also play important roles in North Shore Hardscapes’ design process. “Our designs are very innovative and we step outside the box with many projects,” Lomoro says. “We keep abreast of regional trends, where outdoor living has been a part of life for many years. We can then incorporate certain facets that work for our area.” While outdoor living has traditionally been associated with warm, mild climates, there are many hardscape options that make outdoor living enjoyable even in the Chicago winters—such as outdoor ovens, fires, heat lamps, and more. The North Shore Hardscapes team has made it their goal to educate themselves and their community members on the ideal hardscape options for the area.
At the end of the day, North Shore Hardscapes’ employees provide unique, high-quality, and long-lasting results for their customers. As part of a family business that has served the area for more than 60 years, the company will continue to be a strong presence in the community for many years to come. “There is nothing we value more than our clients’ satisfaction,” says Lynsey Ori, North Shore Hardscapes Administrative Manager. “Being part of such a tight community, it’s important to maintain the respect of its members. We put all the effort behind our work to ensure that our customers are thrilled with the outcome.”
