What is Hardscaping?
Updated: Mar 28, 2019
Most of us are familiar with the term "landscaping". Landscaping refers to the process of making a yard or piece of land more attractive by altering the design, planting trees and shrubs, and adding ornamental features. On the other hand, "hardscaping" is an unfamiliar term less known to the masses. This blog post is designed to take you through the different elements of hardscaping, and what hardscaping can do for your property.
Hardscape is landscaping design that is built using natural and man-made, non-living materials. Hardscaping work uses materials such as stone, wood, and brick to build features such as pathways, patios, and retaining walls. Inherently, architecture becomes a part of the process when hardscaping. Drainage, grade, flow, and function must all be considered when implementing a hardscape project. The end result enhances the natural beauty of the surrounding yard, while also providing a useful outdoor living space.
A functional and aesthetically pleasing feature requires skillful planning and vision by experienced leads with incredible attention to detail, ensuring that no stone is left out of place..
