Hardscaping your yard is about more than just aesthetics. It serves a purpose and is extremely important to the overall function of your outdoor space. When planning and choosing your hardscaping materials, layout and design, it is important to consider how they will impact the efficiency, flow, and look of your landscaping. The size of the space you’re working with doesn’t necessary imply restrictions on your design, so dream big!
Retaining walls and stone stairs or paths can assist in leveling off sloping or uneven land and can also help improve drainage and minimize runoff in areas that may get flooded with water faster. Materials like stone, rock, and concrete can help dry the soil around it by absorbing heat from the sun. This can prevent standing water, over-watering, algae and mildew, and unwanted pests.
Fences and gates provide privacy and protection for your home. They define your property line and section off various areas of your yard that you may want to use for other purposes.
When designed and implemented correctly hardscaping also provides fluidity from the inside of your home to the outside. Building an outdoor kitchen, deck or patio creates and provides outdoor amenities that rival those of your indoor space. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit drastically extends the use of your outdoor space well into the colder months.
