Clean, Fresh, and Mud free. Functional and Beautiful. Hardscaping is the part of your outdoors that doesn’t involve the plants, trees and flowers, and includes brick, stone, concrete, wood, and other hard-wearing materials that will improve the looks and usability of your home and property.
Since you’ve bought a home you really love, shouldn’t you be able to enjoy all of it? With the right design elements and tactically placed sidewalks, patios, and other walkways, you can enjoy your outdoor areas without disturbing grass, trees, flowerbeds, and other areas. Plan and create your hardscape before you plan the rest of the landscaping with plants and flowers.
Along with the aesthetic value of hardscaping, consider how you’ll be using your new area, from relaxing in the morning or evening, to full-scale patio entertaining. These are things you’ll take into consideration when designing and creating your new outdoor design, as well as amenities like an outdoor stove/kitchen, fireplace, or other elements.
The size of your property is also a factor in how much you’ll be adding. Combining and merging the hardscape into the area will ensure that your landscape doesn’t have too many pieces. A simple water feature like a fountain or a gazebo offers a pleasant focal point. Your choice of element will depend on the size of the yard. Coordinating your hardscape color scheme to the inside of your home will let the design flow to the outdoors, rather than look out of place.

Keep it clean – Your outdoor space will provide beautiful clean and dry areas for the entrances to your home and make your backyard a functional space for guests, spending time with your family, and relaxing.
Free up some of your time – Installation of hardscaped areas also reduces the amount of maintenance work you need to do – less weeding, mowing, pruning, and less sweeping and cleaning dirt that has been tracked into your home.
Make a statement and add value – Hardscaping is a great way to introduce drama and style to your property – select colors and textures to complement your home’s architecture, add that outdoor fire pit you have been longing for, or install that paver stone patio. All of these choices can add to your property value.
Capture a feeling – Create a place to celebrate with friends and family – a place to host those birthdays, Easter egg hunts, fall harvest parties, and to soak up the sun.
Combat a problem area – Hardscape projects can also be designed to camouflage unsightly utility boxes/wires, shield your space from neighboring properties, and/or combat drainage issues near your home (including the installation of drainage tile.)
