Although it may be hard to believe after a particularly cold and snowy Kansas City winter, spring is right around the corner – and now is the time to start planning your upcoming spring landscaping, hardscaping and outdoor living projects.

The outdoor living professionals at Heinen are ready to jump start your spring planning with three top trends guaranteed to perk up your own version of the great outdoors:

Retaining Wall with Built in Seating

Stone Retaining Walls with Built in Seating: Functional elements are becoming more and more of a necessity in today’s landscapes. A popular feature used to level out backyards, redirect water, prevent erosion and hold up different structures are stone retaining walls. Heinen specializes in creating custom retaining walls with natural stone – including built-in seating for entertaining guests. Upgrade your landscaping this spring with Heinen’s stunning and purposeful stone retaining walls!

Techo-Bloc Walkways

Techo-Bloc Walkways: Designed with style and substance, Techo-Bloc is quickly becoming the go-to material for walkways, patios and even driveways. Techo-Bloc uses only the highest-grade organic materials within each stone style and are engineered to overcome even the harshest climates – ideal for the ever-changing seasons of Kansas City! Techo-Bloc is the ultimate combination of beauty and function – the landscape professionals at Heinen Landscape have the needed experience to help you design and create a one-of-a-kind Techo-Bloc walkway for your home this spring!


Pergolas: A landscape design that has been a staple for years, pergolas are increasingly becoming more sophisticated in today’s landscapes. Constructed of wood or composite material, the versatile enclosed, yet still open structure of pergolas provide relief from direct sunlight while also allowing air to circulate freely. When paired with a luxury outdoor kitchen, fire/water feature or built-in seating area – pergolas make an iconic outdoor sanctuary!
