What is hardscaping? For those who don’t know, hardscaping consists of the man-made fixtures that appear in landscaping architecture. Examples of this include flagstone walkways, benches, stone retaining walls, etc.
Hardscape is an important aspect of landscaping and lawn maintenance because it adds features and functionality to the natural areas. Hardscape elements can be used to define or add to an existing area: such as a driveway defining a front yard and a brick path adding a walkway to the backyard.
Hardscaping is essential to the aesthetic appeal of an overall landscape. There are countless methods of utilizing hardscape to add to your property:
- Flagstone Walkways
- Stone Retaining Walls
- Brick Walkways
- Gravel Walkway
Some hardscape can be done without professional involvement; however, you should expect a large time commitment to assure proper structure and appearance. Many people choose to contract a professional with hardscaping expertise in order to alleviate the workload and pressure.
