Choosing Hardscapes for Your Landscape Design

Hardscapes are any landscaping features that involve ground moving or materials to build. These are usually permanent structures that add beauty, function and focal points to your yard. If you yard seems bare and boring, adding hardscapes can improve the style and add interesting elements. Here are some hardscapes to consider for enhancing your landscape design.

Natural Stone Patio

Patios can be more than functional. Add beauty and elegance to your backyard with a natural stone patio. Flagstone is an excellent choice for paving outdoor spaces, with many colors and shapes to create a unique entertaining area.

Retaining Walls

Another functional and aesthetic enhancement for your yard is a retaining wall. Retaining walls can add support to slopes and hillsides to stop erosion; they can also be a gorgeous addition to your yard. Retaining walls can also be used to create sunken patios or a sitting wall, made with pavers or natural stone.

Fire Pits or Fireplaces

A beautiful outdoor fire feature can be a great focal point for your backyard space. Imagine a stunning stone fireplace on your patio or a fire pit for late night s’mores with the family. Fire features are enjoyable, offering light and warmth, but can be designed with style for aesthetics.

Walkways

Create an inviting walkway to your front door or a pathway to your gardens. Flagstone and other natural stones are perfect for walkways that add elegance and function to your landscape design.
