Hardscaping: What does it involve?
Designing your outdoor space is always a big undertaking. The latest landscape design ideas actually involve a lot of hardscaping. Everything from outdoor kitchens, to patios and decks need to be meticulously planned and executed.
- Decide what you want- It helps if you have some idea of what you want to do with your outdoors. You first need to take a look at your outdoor space and consider just how much room you have. Some hardscape designs aim to make the most out of small backyards; some are great for large, open spaces. Consider what you can incorporate into your outdoors. If you’re unable to decide, you can always consult our expert design team.
- Decide a purpose- It’s a good idea to consider just how you intend to use your outdoor space. For example, if you’re a social person who loves to host dinner parties and BBQs, you might want to consider installing an outdoor kitchen. However, if you’re someone who values privacy and doesn’t entertain often, a patio with a fireplace would prove to be an excellent refuge after a hard day’s work.
- Plan and Set a Budget- Before embarking on any project, we have a sit-down with our clients. It is vital that we understand your intentions and your vision. Hardscaping is, more or less, a permanent fixture of your outdoor space. Most of our clients would prefer not to change it for at least ten years. Keeping that in mind, we help you pick the right materials and understand the care and maintenance involved.
- Materials-The quality of your hardscape features depends entirely on the materials you chose. You have several options to choose from, especially in pavers. Stone is the most expensive material to use but it is durable and attractive. Structures like outdoor kitchens and fireplaces can be covered with stone veneers. Flagstone is a popular material for walkways and patios. Brick is also a very durable and popular material for hardscaping. It complements traditional design ideas well. Concrete is durable and relatively inexpensive. Concrete pavers come in different designs and shapes, making them a great alternative to brick and stone.
