What is a Hardscape?  Quite simply, it’s the non-living “stuff” in your yard, such as rocks, pavers, bricks, or stones, whereas the landscape includes the living elements, such as plants, flowers, shrubs, and trees.  When deciding on your hardscaping, consider the following top tips!

  • Choosing a Theme: Your hardscaping design should complement your existing home.  Whether it is the exterior colors and style or an existing hardscape that you may wish to expand, try to avoid mismatched elements and instead go for things that are complimentary.
  • Proper Drainage Adding hardscaping elements, like a retaining wall or patio, can alter the path by which water drains.  From a heavy thunderstorm or melting snow, be certain that your ground can handle the running water.  Proper drainage is vital and is best suited for a professional so the runoff can be routed effectively.
  • The Master Plan: Grab some pencil and paper and draw it out!  It’s strongly advisable to higher a seasoned master builder/designer, but a properly designed drawing will allow you to visualize all of your plans, from a new walking path that wraps around your home to a patio and fireplace.
