Hardscaping is an aspect of landscaping that provides structure and functionality to outdoor areas. Hardscaping refers to any man-made structure within landscaping design that is made of inanimate materials like gravel, brick, wood, pavers, or stone. Any solid structure in an outdoor area that is not plant life is considered hardscape. Hardscaping any structure on your property may be costly, but it can increase the value of your home. Features like swimming pools, a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen, or flagstone patio tiles can make your outdoor space more liveable and add to the visual appeal, functionality, and value to your home.

The driveway occupies an important place in overall home and property design. When planning your driveway, it is important to consider budget, curb appeal and durability. Be sure to be sure to factor in the varying long-term costs associated with different types of driveways. While a paver driveway carries relatively high up-front installation costs, maintaining one isn’t expensive. Gravel, on the other hand, is perhaps the least expensive to install but requires the sort of regular maintenance that doesn’t come cheap. As viewed from the street, your driveway can make a big impression on the look of your house. And certain materials complement certain architectural styles more than others. What kind of traffic will your driveway be getting? Will there be lots of heavy trucks on it, or just passenger cars? How will you accommodate guest’s cars? Whatever material you decide to use for your driveway, make sure you take time to lay it out right.

A modern or contemporary garden is characterized by a sleek, streamlined and sophisticated style. Modern garden designs draw on the simplicity of Asian design practices. Generally, a modern garden places more focus on the architecture and materials than on the plants and greenery. Geometric shapes and repeating patterns are often employed in contemporary outdoor spaces. The main idea is to create a garden that has a controlled and organized appearance.
While the tropical landscaping garden style has traditionally fit well with with Mediterranean and other coastal landscape design styles, a bit of it’s influence is finding its way into the ideas of a lot of other styles of designs as well. Whether you want a uncluttered landscape with a few tropicals blended or a virtual jungle around your pool area, we will assist you in planning for the aesthetic that is right for you.
