Shawn and his team were very professional and did excellent work creating our patio. He even had his guys redo the patio after not liking the seem layout when they were roughly half done. Also, he sent his guys back out to fix a damaged paver.

Looking forward to work with him and his team again in the future for the landscaping we want to have done.

Shawn and his team created the most amazing travertine patio in our backyard! They also built our retaining wall. They are phenomenally done! Highly recommend this company!

Thank you for doing a great job on our front yard! The brick is really well done, and the plants and river rock go really well together. It's perfect. We really appreciate all of the work.

I had a really hard time finding a decent landscaper in Charlotte. Most wouldn't even return a call, much less get me on their schedule. I found Powell Landscaping just by working my way down the list in a google search. I'm so glad I did. He answered the phone, and was out the same day. Not only was he out the same day.. he made some great suggestions, and emailed me a quote from his truck outside of my house. It was a very good price for what I needed done. I accepted the quote, and him and his crew were here working three days later. They worked long days, every day, until the job was done. I talked to the bricklayer, and he has a ton of experience.. previous union mason in NYC I think? Anyway, he did fantastic work. They all did. I can't say enough about these guys. A couple of times I was following package deliveries for work, and saw them meet the driver and walk my package to my front door. Good people. If you're looking for someone who will work hard for your money and won't take it for granted, get in touch with these guys. Charlotte needs more businesses like this.

Shawn and his crew did a fantastic job on our flagstone patio. We are very pleased with the finished product. His crew was professional and courteous, and the end result is something we are proud of.

Shawn and team did our landscaping and retaining wall. Their work and communication was top notch. We had a couple of trees and shrubs not make it through the summer heat and Shawn replaced them right away. Highly recommend him and his team for your landscaping needs. Thanks Shawn for your excellent work.

If you want someone passionate and that pays attention to detail Shawn is your guy. He completely transformed our backyard this year with a paver patio, fireplace, and retaining wall, all of which was done flawlessly. Being the typical homeowner I had reservations about the end result (No reflection on Shawn, totally my own programming) but I quickly learned that Shawn takes great pride in his work and I had nothing to worry about.
Each time my wife and I go onto the patio I quietly thank my lucky stars that we went with Shawn. The end result is spectacular.
Thank you Shawn!!!!!

Shawn and his crew did a fantastic job with our landscaping project. His bid came in the most competitive and he went above and beyond to make sure our vision was achieved. He completely gutted our backyard and built an impressive retaining wall to magically create a fully usable backyard. The crew finished it off with mulch, sod, appropriate drainage and an HOA friendly aluminum fence. If the weather allowed someone was here working on the project. They took extra precautions during a very rainy winter to contain all runoff dirt and pressure washed a couple of times to make sure they kept up with any dirt left by machines. We are very happy with the results.

Shawn and his crew did an outstanding job on our patio. I got several estimates and I decided to go with Powell Concrete Hardscape and Landscaping . It definitely was the right choice.

Shawn and his team were very easy to work with. I wanted this work done asap and Shawn was able to fit me in and still provide quality work. The price was very reasonable especially when you consider that the prep work took longer than expected because of some old tree roots left over from the construction. I had my driveway expanded 10' x 31' and I am very pleased with the end product. I highly recommend Powell Concrete for this type of work. My neighbors have made many comments on the nice job that was done.

Project: Install Concrete Patios, Walks and Steps

As a new resident to Charlotte, I moved from a State where code was very strong on building due to hurricanes. Shawn built the project using a stronger code than what I heard from others who also bid the project. Pouring concrete is more involved than most realize. Shawn has a background in building and knew exactly what I was looking for in the project. The design of the terraced patios for hot tub, fire pit and cooking and relaxing constructed to access a raised screened deck looks incredible. As a Realtor that has contracted to remodel many houses in the past, this is a company you want to add to your list of service providers. Job Well done Shawn Powell! The color and layout looks incredible.

Project: Landscape Yard or Gardens

Mr. Powell was very knowledgeable and took pride in the work he preformed. While my original request was for him to level an area where I would install a paver patio once he started asking me some questions I realized that there was a lot more involved to installing this correctly then I had considered so he offered a fair price to do this install and then did more than was expected with out changing the original quote. Very good service and the paver patio is much better than I had pictured it being.

Work took a while to do but that was because of all the rain we were getting recently, but once it cleared up they worked very efficiently. I had nothing but great experiences with this company and if I would I would rate them 10 out of 5 stars!

He seems to love his work and makes sure the job is done, even if he has to stay late.

Shawn was an absolute delight to work with on our recent project to reconstruct a stone masonry wall on our house. He was extremely helpful in planning and executing the unusual work required. Shawn returned all our calls and texts promptly and answered all our questions. We give him our highest recommendation.


Shawn and his crew were prompt with their services and stuck to the time line as discussed. This was so refreshing after having dealt with several other contractors recently who have no respect for your time. Shawn was honest with his recommendations and his pricing was very competitive. They did a great job widening our driveway, very informative re: ideas to alter our existing sprinkler system and cleaned up great after the job! Will definitely use them again!


The need existed to put in a nice fireplace/patio in the back yard as well as build a retaining wall around the back of the back yard. The results were incredible! Much time is spent around that fire pit now. The costs were very reasonable and the materials were first rate. Shawn is a very hard worker who insists on perfection in everything he does and the results prove that. I highly recommend this company to anyone who has any hardscape needs or wants!


Awesome job! Paver patio and concrete car park. Shawn helped with the multi-level patio design and it looks great. It was a challenge - a long and narrow side yard with a significant slope. We definitely recommend Powell Services and Shawn.
