What is Hardscape?

Including hardscape elements in your landscape adds functionality and pleasing design.  What exactly are hardscape elements? They include “hard” portions of your landscape design such as paving, stones and gravel. 
Hardscapes may include:

  • Walkways
  • Retaining walls
  • Permeable pavers
  • Natural stone accents

Elements such as walkways and retaining walls can serve a purpose and be a beautiful part of your landscape at the same time. 

Retaining Walls

Although retaining walls are often built as a solution to a problem, they can also serve as accents to your landscape.  Taking all factors into consideration, such as drainage and soil conditions, we will help you chose the right material for the job.  Whether natural stone or engineered block, we can create a design that compliments your home or business.


Much more than just a surface to walk on, a selection of pattern and texture can add to the character of your outdoor space.  Factors to consider before building a walkway include seasonal weather, drainage and material selection.  We’ll help you design and install a walkway that will not only compliment your landscape but stand up to use.

If you’d like to talk about adding hardscape to your outdoor space, please give us a call and we’d be happy to discuss your options.
