Incorporating a new hardscape into your residence gives it a distinctive appearance. It is a great way to add your individual style to the landscape. A winding stone path through the plants and trees adds intrigue. Or maybe adding a paver patio with an adjoining fire pit or grill. The options are endless on making the backyard a more intimate and functional area.
Driveways and Walkways
A new hardscape is not limited to the backyard. Pavers can be used to dress up walkways and driveways. Natural stone edging can compliment stone accents on the home and add a distinguishing look to a flower bed. There are many materials to choose from to give your landscape a personal touch.
Retaining walls are an element that is necessary on many properties. The choices of styles available have increased greatly over the years. Many manufactured concrete products have both durability and style. Gone are the days of decaying crosstie walls. There are also many options freestanding walls used for a built-in grill or to create an outdoor room.
If a wall is not your style, there may be other options that serve for erosion control drainage. The use of boulders and selective plant material is a fine choice to keep a natural look to a slope. Using river stone to create dry creek beds can add beauty to an area that was unattractive. Whether you have an established landscape or are starting from the basics, hardscapes are a great choice.
