What is Hardscaping?

Hardscaping simply refers to the man-made features used in landscape design. These features include things like water features, rock gardens, decks, patios, retaining walls, and walkways.

Why Use Hardscaping?

When properly designed and installed, hardscaping can drastically change and enhance your lawn or garden’s appearance and functionality. Hardscaping can beautify an area and help delineate green space and space for use. Hardscaping is also a great investment as hardscaping materials like concrete and stone rarely need to be replaced and require a relatively small amount of upkeep.

Hardscaping Ideas for Small Yards

Even small yards and gardens can benefit from hardscaping. Here are a few ideas for small areas:

    • Small Patios – A small patio can be the perfect compliment to a small area. If you have enough space for a small cafe table and a chair or two, we can provide a nice spot for you to  enjoy your outdoor space.
    • Retaining Wall or Raised Planters – These hardscaping features add dimension to a space and can help achieve height with plants to create a lush, private feeling.
    • Firepit – There are so many options these days for compact fire pits and fire tables that you can add a cozy winter spot to even a very small yard.
