A hardscape project is usually anything that involves: patios, driveways, front walks, walls, courtyards, fireplace, firepits and outdoor kitchens. This can be constructed with flagstone, concrete, pavers and other building materials. Whatever material you decide to use, you want to make sure it compliments the style of your home and the look of your landscape. As stated before, there are quite a few options available to you when it comes to materials. A Landscape Architect can carefully access your landscape and help you figure out which hardscape material will suit your property the best.
It’s best to take on these hardscape projects during the winter months, because when spring rolls around, you are usually ready to start walking through your gardens and admiring all the freshly bloomed flowers. Another element of the hardscape project that you will need to discuss with your Landscape Architect is the design. Are you leaning toward straight and narrow paths or winding walkways? What outdoor rooms need to be accessible with your pathway? How tall do you want your landscaping walls? All these are very good questions that your landscaping contractor will be happy to ask and answer if you are unsure.
