Capitol Hardscapes

Chris, Christy and John Scango
Bethesda, MD


Capitol Hardscapes is a family owned—and family focused—hardscaping business, specializing in driveways, walkways, patios, stoops and stairs, pool decks, walls, outdoor fireplaces and more. Whether a project is residential, commercial or institutional, Capitol Hardscapes operates as a boutique-style firm. In fact, spending more time with and focus on customers—something they felt the hardscaping industry was missing—is what drove owners Chris and Christy Scango to start their own company in 2010.

Together with Chris’s brother John, the Scangos assembled a team of project managers with more than 40 years of combined experience, committed to providing a superior level of availability. From job estimates, through visits to stone companies for selection of materials and project completion, Chris or John is present on every site—every day—to walk customers through details and answer all questions and concerns, ensuring clients stay fully informed. 

“As a family run business, we’re a natural team,” says Chris. “We have a level of trust that allows us to talk freely and openly, providing seamless management of our projects.” 

Capitol Hardscapes provides a wide variety of creative and budget friendly services that solve difficult site conditions, such as poor drainage, elevation changes, limited access installations, unusual material acquisition and historic restorations. Project managers simplify what can be an overwhelming process by breaking it down into segments customers can clearly envision, and work closely with clients on all aspects of a project, including choosing the best stones/colors/textures to complement their style.

“We strive to maintain customers’ vision throughout each project,” says Chris. “It brings us great pleasure when our clients thank us for helping them manage the process to create the outdoor space they’ve always wanted.”
