Get the most out of your landscape by choosing hardscapes as an added accent to your property. Hardscapes focus on the everlasting man-made features and structures that makeup the surrounding areas of the landscape. The material will vary depending on the style, design and budget you are going for but mostly consist of natural stone for a smoother earth-like feel. Many homeowners choose hardscapes to add value to their backyard and create curb appeal to any pathway.


Hardscapes Designs

Transform the backyard of your dreams using hardscape designs that look like they came straight out of a magazine. Draw attention to your already added softscapes such as beautiful plantery, bushes and flowers. Create jaw-dropping designs that add volume and depth to areas like your patio, deck, garden walkways and even fences. These added features are perfect for that in-between look giving you the illusion of a more cohesive overall scenery. There are hundreds of different designs and materials to choose from but picking a theme can better help our professionals arrange and seperate the hardscape pieces to fit your style.

Hardscape Construction

Once you have figured out a theme and budget for your backyard, you are ready to revamp any space of your choice. Focus on areas that are rather empty or need added borders such as cobblestone around the fireplace or wood floor planks around decks for added height and dimension. Setting up pathways that lead to an entry garden with archway florals or a small pond are easy, popular ways to get spruce up your lawn. Create a backdrop with wood or metal fences such as with sitting areas for more privacy. You can even add a gazebo to relax under on any sunny day. There is no right or wrong way to add hardscapes but here are some easy ways to incorporate more dazzling looks using hardscape materials:

  • Mix and match textiles that include wood and concrete elements to bring out any surrounding greenery.

  • Spruce up your lawn by adding a beautiful pathway using stone tile and gravel to elongate the use of space. These paths can lead to any entryway of your backyard or home, making for a beautiful entrance.

  • Add small or large stone slabs for steps leading to water features such as calming fountains or streams

  • Give the illusion of a larger entertainment deck by adding height to small bushes and including larger stones around seating areas for decorative purposes. This will also help separate spaces and enclose privacy to and from the pool or garden.
