Chris, Christy & John Scango

Capitol Hardscapes
Bethesda, MD


What is one thing your clients should know about you?

We operate as a boutique-style firm—very customer centric. Our team of project managers has more than 40 years of combined experience and is committed to providing a superior level of availability. From the job estimate, 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, answer all questions and concerns, and make sure our clients stay fully informed. 

We can provide a wide variety of hardscaping services that solve difficult site conditions, such as poor drainage, elevation changes, limited access installations, unusual material acquisition, historic restorations and more. Our project managers and site superintendents apply a solution-oriented hardscaping focus to every project. Our experienced subcontractor network also provides us the versatility to implement creative and budget friendly solutions to outdoor spaces. 

We work directly with homeowners, architects, professional landscapers, homebuilders and developers to create designs that integrate our customers’ ideas with functional solutions. And our team approach and constant personal involvement insures that our designs are finished according to the highest standards. 

What brings you the most satisfaction in your work? 

Quite simply: Happy customers. A hardscape project can be overwhelming for clients, with many decisions and choices, but we simplify the process by breaking it down into segments our customers can clearly envision. We enjoy working closely with them on all aspects of a project, including choosing the best stones, colors and textures to complement their style. We strive to maintain our clients’ vision throughout each project and implement customized strategies to achieve their goals. In the end, it brings us great pleasure when our clients thank us for helping them manage the process to achieve the outdoor space they have always wanted.
