Hardscapes Winston Homeowners and Business Owners Love

Landscaping is simply creating and maintaining the living aspects of your residential or commercial yard. That includes all the grass, shrubs, trees, flowers, and any necessary lawn care and maintenance. In contrast, hardscaping is creating those non-living aspects of your yard that typically involve stonework. This could be anything from a paver patio to an outdoor kitchen.

In our many years of hardscaping we have discovered some of the more popular types of hardscapes. Those include:

  1. Patio
  2. Outdoor kitchen
  3. Retaining wall
  4. Water features
  5. Pavers
  6. Outdoor fireplace
  7. Fire pit

Each hardscape provides a different benefit and use. The first factor in deciding which hardscape is best for you is breaking it down into residential versus commercial.

Commercial Hardscaping

If you own a business, the exterior is the first impression your customers or clients will have of your business. Therefore, you want it to look beautiful! Hardscapes are a great way to obtain a sleek and stunning look outside of your business.

Many business owners consider adding hardscapes along with landscapes for an overall impressive appeal. Common hardscape choices to increase curb appeal among Winston businesses include:

  • Pavers
  • Patio spaces
  • Retaining walls
  • Unique walkway

Several restaurants also vamp up their patio spaces with fire pits to encourage outdoor dining when it is a little chillier outside. At Landscape Solutions, we also offer numerous commercial landscaping services.

Residential Hardscapes

Outdoor living continues to be an increasingly popular trend among North Carolina residents. In that vein, hardscapes provide ways to create an outdoor living space that is perfect for creating your own backyard oasis.

Al Fresco Dining

Eating outside is extremely popular in the Piedmont Triad area due to our relatively mild climate. This means we often get requests for outdoor kitchens, outdoor grills, and outdoor fireplaces. Each provides a wonderful way to make meals outside. If you add on a patio, then you also have the perfect space to enjoy your culinary labors outside.

Calming Water

The sound of water or merely looking at water provides a serenity that not many other things do. That is one of the many benefits provided by adding a water feature in your yard. One popular choice is backyard waterfalls. There are hardscapes available for both pondless waterfalls and those with a pond. No matter which you chose it is certain to provide a calming sanctuary right in your own yard.

Crackling Fire Pits

A final common hardscape request is a fire pit. Nothing beats the sound of listening to a crackling fire. Plus, it is a great way to provide warmth when hanging outside with family and friends. The entire family will enjoy making fun memories toasting smores around the fire pit.

Commonly Asked Questions About Hardscapes

Like any other building service, it is common to ask an abundance of questions before adding on a hardscape of any kind to your home or business. Below are the most frequent inquiries we hear regarding hardscapes.

How will I know what the hardscape will look like?

We now utilize 3D designs that show you what the hardscape or landscape design will look like right on your property. Additionally, we work closely with you to decide everything from materials to placement. We discuss all those details thoroughly with every client. These discussions provide a great way to understand the design before it is completed.

What will my hardscape design and installation cost?

Every single hardscape design we create and install is unique. Therefore, we do not have one set price for each type of hardscape. The cost is dependent on various factors, including:

  • Materials (for instance, natural stone costs more than concrete)
  • Scope of project
  • Design time and type (for example, our 3D designs cost a different fee)
  • Installation time

These are only a few variables to consider when determining hardscape prices. At the beginning of each project, we provide a detailed quote based on your needs and budget.

How long will it take to create my hardscape?

Like price, there is no one answer to this question. It is dependent on just as many variables as price. At the start of your project, we will discuss a timeline specific to your project and set tentative project completion dates.
