What is a hardscape?

You are probably familiar with the idea of landscaping. Landscaping is the improvement of the appearance of an area of land by the use of plants, trees, flowers, shrubs and other natural vegetation. Hardscaping is the art of implementing man-made features and designs throughout your landscaping. Things like fountains, stone paths, our outdoor fireplaces are examples of hardscapes. Together, landscapes and hardscapes exist harmoniously to bring a peaceful atmosphere to any yard.

What can a hardscape do for my yard?

As with any work of art, hardscapes aim to be pleasing to the eye. However, they also go a step further. Many hardscapes can provide functionality. A fire pit, for instance, can be used for a barbecue. A beautifully crafted swimming pool is a great break from summer heat. An outdoor kitchen allows more entertaining space and saves your indoor kitchen from the clutter and when cooking for a large group. A covered patio seating area is a great place to host a dinner party. Stone benches surrounding a gazing pool are a fabulous reading nook. Retaining walls can prevent soil erosion and keep hilly areas solid during heavy rains. Hardscapes are not only beautiful—they are useful, as well.

What types of hardscapes does Landscape Solutions and Design offer?

Landscape Solutions and Design works with each client to create a unique, beautiful design. Whatever you want, we can provide. If you’re having difficulty coming up with hardscape ideas, we can help guide you through the process. Many people look to hardscaping to create their perfect backyard getaway.

A break from reality without leaving your home. We offer our services to ensure you always have a place to get away for awhile. And, when you feel recharged, use the space to invite friends and family over for a night of catching up.

What types of materials do hardscapes use?

A hardscape can be created from any building material. Concrete, stone, wood, or brick—anything is possible. Forming a beautifully crafted, durable hardscape from any medium is our goal. Brick sidewalks, wooden porches, stone retaining walls—we can do it all. We will work with you to make any of your hardscape ideas a reality.

Landscape Solutions and Design can bring your hardscape ideas to life!

Hardscape designs work to blend perfectly into your existing landscape. Trees, shrubs, and flowers are not overshadowed by a good hardscape design. Rather, they are emphasized. A concrete patio can be surrounded by lush grass…an entryway caped with climbing ivy…a retaining wall as a backdrop for a flower bed, or an outdoor fireplace, surrounded by trees and shrubs. With hardscaping by Landscape Solutions and Design, anything is possible. Create your escape.
