Adding Hardscapes to Your Landscape

So you are thinking about adding a patio or firepit to your landscape. What do you do first?


To begin with, lets plan your outdoor living area. Start with a concept and graduate to a design. You can be simplistic or creative. Do you just want a clean place to kick back and enjoy the sunset, or just roast a few marshmallows over a firepit, or entertain a party? Hardscapes can designate living areas from the garden, solve site issues like erosion and mud, or just add beauty. But, it nearly always adds value to your home.


Hardscaping can be done with a variety of materials. You can go cheap with stepping stones and wall blocks, or just gravel and stone if contained properly. Natural Flagstone is a beautiful way to create living areas and paths, water features and walls. And then there are tumbled pavers, these are your best investment. They tend to add the greatest value to your home. Function and beauty are yours with a little planning. 


Beyond the patio itself there are sitting walls, firepits, enterance columns, outdoor ovens, mailbox kits, ponds and fountains, multiple levels and steps to transcend different grades in your landscape. You can border flower beds or lead directly into the lawn. Even install first class driveways and walks.


Hardscapes can provide the ultimate enhancement for your outdoor living spaces. They can be as elaborate or as simple as you desire. You can use different colors, shapes and textures to enhance your design characteristics. Most people think basic because they have not considered the values or more detailed designs. Treat your hardscape installation as you would a landscape installation. Start with the planning. Come see us for that good Peninsula Hardwood Mulch knowledge.
