What exactly is hardscaping? Hardscaping is the maintenance of the visual outline of your property. It allows you to frame and sculpt your property like a work of art. Your hardscape elements are decorative rocks, your driveway, walkway, patio stone, fountains, and rock walls. Hardscaping will add style and aesthetic quality, and it will also improve the value of your home in the long run.
Hardscape features include:
-Pathways and walkways
Patios are the focal point of any outdoor relaxation area. Patios are constructed with a variety of materials, including concrete, slate, and stone. Selecting the right material depends on your style, so we work with clients to build their dream. We also select materials that are ideal for the specific climate, so you can be sure your patio space will be durable. The perfect patio space is now often accompanied by a built-in fire pit. We will design and built your fire pit to be safe, functional, and beautiful. You will enjoy countless memorable nights with family and friends in this patio space, gathered in front of the glow of the fire. A patio with an added fire pit create a warm, delightful seating area for your outdoor paradise. If you’d like to take your design beyond the seating area, you can add a fountain or stone water feature as well. Fountains are popular additions because they give your outdoor space a sense of tranquility.
Rock walls are a great way to design your outdoor space, and add privacy. In addition to building these walls, servicing or revitalizing existing walls can also add a new, fresh appearance to your space. Retaining walls are another type of outdoor wall that you may add or may have already. Retaining walls can be beautiful to look at, and serve a major purpose in the structural integrity of your property. Retaining walls keep soil from eroding, and they prevent the landscape from sloping or falling. They can also provide a barrier to flooding, protecting your backyard or your basement. Concrete and brick are the most popular materials for the retaining walls, but we will work with you to find the best style and durability for your property.
Pathways and driveways are the first thing you and your guests see when entering your home. A beautiful, well-crafted entrance gives the perfect impression as you enter the house, and they can add value to your property as well. Driveways can be viewed from the street, so they are a necessary feature if you want your property to have excellent curb appeal. You can select a material that compliments the rest of your home, so the whole property is inviting. To make sure the driveway doesn’t crack or sink, we will make sure that material is durable and reinforced.
