Hardscapes

Hardscapes are a practical and permanent part of your landscaping. There are a variety of designs such as walkways, steps, patios and retaining walls as well as barbecue pits, fire pits, waterfalls and ponds. Walkways create a permanent path through your yard and add interest to the landscaping. Hardscapes can be built from natural stone, brick or concrete to match or harmonize with your home décor. They also include pergolas, arbors and other structures including an outdoor chimney or full kitchen.

Decks

Decks are an excellent upgrade to any home. Even if a yard is small, a deck can be customized to create an attractive and useful outdoor space. Decks are the least expensive home improvement, and add more value to your home than an additional room or conservatory. They function as outdoor living space and are useful for storing bicycles, toys and other items that you want to be able to access quickly. Decks can also include an outdoor kitchen with refrigerator and working sink.

Patio

A patio is basically a stone or concrete area outside the home used for outdoor living with furniture. It may be around a pool or a small area outside an exterior door. Patios can be very attractive with stamped concrete, bricks or stone installed in various designs or curved around flower beds. They are easy to maintain, and will last for years.

Your yard, no matter how small or large, can be improved with a deck, patio or hardscape. Custom designed with your input, it can enhance your lifestyle as well as the value of your home. You can select from a wide variety of materials and styles including modern, classical or rustic, and there are many environmentally-friendly styles and materials from which to choose. You can create a new place for children to play and adults to relax without going into debt or breaking your budget.
