What is Hardscaping?

“Hardscape refers to the hard landscape materials in the built environment structures that are incorporated into a landscape. This can include paved areas, driveways, retaining walls, stairs, walkways, patios, and any other landscaping made up of hard wearing materials such as wood, stone, concrete, etc. as opposed to softscape, the horticultural elements of a landscape.” – wikipedia

So, how can hardscape elements enhance your property?  These elements can add beauty and functionality to your outdoor spaces. They become an extension of your home and in many cases can become the preferred area for your family and guests to relax and entertain.  An outdoor paver patio offers a place to gather and eat or  to sit and relax.  An outdoor kitchen can can eliminate the need to use your homes kitchen when preparing a meal.  A fire pit is a place where adults can gather for a few drinks while the kids enjoy toasting s’mores .

Proper planning of your outdoor space is essential to making sure all of the elements fit together seamlessly.  Everything needs to be considered such as proper drainage, the correct base materials, and durable products that will stand the test of time.  The single most important decision you will make is hiring the right installer.  Too many contractors are not qualified to do these projects and as a result they ultimately fail.  Sometimes as soon as a year, after the first winter.   A simple drive around your neighborhood will reveal walls falling down or walkways uneven and heaving.  Inevitably if its not built right it will fail and then you are left with an eyesore and a potential safety hazard.  It often costs more to take the failed project apart and rebuild it the right way.  We have complete confidence that our installers are the best in the industry.  We wouldn’t put our name on our projects if we didn’t believe it.
