WHAT IS HARDSCAPING?
Your outdoor living areas are extensions of your home, and as such, they should complement and enhance the exterior of your home. A beautifully landscaped front yard can boost the “curb appeal” of your property by as much as 20%.
Since it is such an important investment, before you embark on a landscape renovation or installation, it’s helpful to understand some of the basic concepts involved so that you can make the best choices for your situation.
BASIC CONCEPTS OF HARDSCAPING
Landscaping can be divided into two general categories: hardscapes and softscapes.
We Design It To Your Taste
Creating a successful design that is both beautiful and functional calls for a landscape professional who can interpret your style preferences into a one-of-a-kind outdoor living space you’ll love for years to come.
Because hardscape elements are permanent fixtures, it’s best to give some serious thought to designing your overall landscape before you make any major changes to your outdoor living areas. Having a general plan in mind for achieving your ultimate landscape goals will save you headaches later. For example, knowing that two years from now you will want to build an outdoor kitchen will save you the headache of later discovering that your irrigation system is in the way, or that the concrete patio you put in last year is now in the wrong place.
