Incorporating Hardscapes Into Your Landscape Design

Published on: December 5, 2014

If your landscape design is in need of an upgrade, why not consider adding hardscapes to your property? Hardscapes are features like retaining walls, stone paths and other constructed items from wood or stone which can add beauty and function to your yard. Many hardscape projects can increase the value and curb appeal of your home, making them a worthwhile investment.

Interesting Hardscape Features for Your Home

Are you looking to add depth and character to your yard? Hardscape features are the perfect solution. Beyond the beauty of the plants and lawn in your landscaping, hardscape features give a stylized look to your yard. Some interesting hardscape features to consider adding to your landscaping include:

  • Stone or brick pathways. Protect your lawn while adding a classic feature to your yard. Stone or brick pathways are an aesthetically pleasing and functional addition to any home.
  • Retaining walls. Another functional and appealing feature is the retaining wall. Create a handsome rock wall that can transform a slope into a tiered garden while stopping erosion.
  • Decks and arbors. Create a perfect deck and patio area with a natural wood deck and arbors. Putting wood below your feet and above your head creates a new look for your home, one you will want to show off to friends and family.

Not all landscape companies are able to build stone, brick or wood hardscapes, however, there are many who are experts when it comes to incorporating hardscape features into landscape designs. To add one or more of these features to your home, talk to a local landscape company that specializes in hardscapes. They can help you transform your plain yard into the envy of the neighborhood.
