Hardscape Features Increase Your Property Value

Hardscapes_In landscaping, the part of an outdoor area that is manmade and not vegetation is a “hardscape.” These can include walkways, patios, decks and retaining walls, as well as features such as pools, fountains, or gazebos. Hardscape features offer several benefits. They can allow landscaping that would be difficult because of soil erosion on a sloping lawn. Or, they can enable the movement of people or vehicles on sidewalks and driveways while protecting surrounding areas.

Planned thoughtfully, a hardscape project blends beautifully into the landscape. It both enhances the property and protects the surrounding environment. A professional quality hardscape from Landscape Solutions & Design will increase your family’s outdoor enjoyment at home. It will also greatly boost your property’s overall value.

Hardscape Features to Consider

Driveways and Sidewalks

Probably the most used hardscape features, these are also the first things people see when they visit your house. They have to be in good repair to stand up to the amount of use they get. They must also be attractive and complement the architectural style of your home.

Materials could include concrete or asphalt or the more sophisticated appearance of concrete or brick pavers. These come in a variety of styles and can be installed in a number of patterns.


Whether your home needs a short sidewalk, a long driveway, or a winding decorative path, pavers are highly functional. They are also amazingly durable and always beautiful. They are perfect for patios, and are available in a wide variety of materials to complement any building style.

Retaining Walls

If your lawn slopes or is uneven, you can avert any problems by using retaining walls to add stability. The experienced professionals at Landscape Solutions & Design have the skill to install these tricky hardscape projects.

Water Features

Extending your family’s enjoyment of your home is easy with the installation of a water feature. This could include a relaxing pond, a calming waterfall, or an elegant fountain. Your outdoor area would be a soothing retreat with the addition of the sound of water.

Entertainment Features

For entertaining friends and family, there are many other types of hardscape features to think about. A full-scale outdoor kitchen is one idea. You can also consider a patio with a fire pit, or a masonry fireplace with a chimney and grill. Such inviting spaces are welcoming to one and all and greatly increase the value of your home.
