Hardscape Landscaping 101
WHAT IS HARDSCAPING
Used to provide structure to your landscape design, hardscaping incorporates heavier elements such as driveways, swimming pools, retaining walls, pavers and fountains.
Hardscaping works to create an organized look for your property. Hardscape elements are solid, inanimate objects and unchanging.

- Level sloping land
- Curb appeal
- Increase property value
- Reduce lawn maintenance
