What Exactly is Hardscape?
Have you heard the term “hardscape” before and wondered what it meant? If you have, this blog post has all the details you’re looking for!
A hardscape is an “unnatural” element of landscaping. Hardscapes include stone walls or ponds, brick paths or fountains, wood walkways or gazebos, and so on. The most popular hardscape materials are brick, concrete, metal, stone, and wood.
Those with a pool should consider hardscapes to transform their backyard into an incredible oasis. Hardscape projects can add cohesiveness, personal style, and beauty to any outdoor area. Think about tying in your yard’s natural landscaping with hardscapes for a one of a kind appearance that is unique to your space.
Stone walls are a popular way to transform bland outdoor spaces. If you have a blank space in your yard that is seeking some excitement and texture, think about installing a stone wall. These walls can also add privacy and a rustic feel to a space. If you’re more interested in a patio area, concrete, tile, flagstone, brick, or stone are all excellent options. Design a patio alongside your pool to prevent grass or dirt from getting tracked into the water. Patio spaces are also perfect for outdoor entertaining. Think about concrete for a low-maintenance option, brick for a more upscale look, flagstone for a low-cost choice, tile for a personal touch, or stone for a natural feel.
To keep your yard safe and free of animals, think about installing a metal fence. This hardscape option is functional and eye-catching. Individuals can also opt for a wooden fence for added privacy. Think about painting the wood a color to match your home or personal style. Wood is a versatile option, while metal is modern and durable.
