“Landscape” refers to plants and trees that you have on the outside of your home. “Hardscape” refers to the pavement, stones, wooden structures and other features that don’t need to be kept alive. A creative mixture of hardscape features can really add a lot to your landscaping and to the overall curb appeal of your property. Here are some of the more popular hardscape features that homeowners choose.
While retaining walls are an attractive addition to your property, they are also functional. If you have a lot of hills on the property, retaining walls can help to prevent problems such as soil erosion and even flooding. Retaining walls can be designed to fit a variety of visual preferences as well, so yours can easily be customized to fit the look and feel of your property.
Stairs and Walkways
Stairs and walkways are more hardscape features that are necessary for many properties but still add a lot aesthetically. Pavers, concrete, gravel, or a mixture of these elements can be used to create visually appealing and safe walkways and stairs for your property.
One of the most sought-after hardscape design features is a patio. Your outdoor patio is an incredibly versatile space for quiet nights with the family, summer barbecues, and all manner of outdoor parties and events. You can even stain your concrete patio to create a stunning visual effect.
Ponds and Water Features
If you want a visually stunning hardscape feature that can also help make your yard a more relaxing space, try adding a pond, waterfall, or another type of water feature. Ponds and water features are totally customizable and we are happy to help you create your backyard oasis!
An Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor kitchens are super convenient if you like to do a lot of outdoor entertaining. There is no “standard” outdoor kitchen design, so you can put as much or as little as you want into yours. For some extra fun, you can even have a bar built into your outdoor kitchen!
