In landscape architecture, hardscape is essentially everything that is not vegetation. They consist of manmade features that may use natural or manmade elements.
Now that we have an idea of what hardscapes are, here are some features you may want to include in your front yard or backyard.
1. Paving Stones
These can include flagstone pavers, they are the most versatile hardscaping option for driveways, walkways, and patios. This low- maintenance, long-lasting hardscape also enhances your home’s curb appeal and increases your property value.
A fireplace takes an outdoor living space from typical to luxurious. It’s the perfect gathering spot for adults and kids, whether you’re cozying up on a cool evening or roasting marshmallows.
Mark the perimeter of your yard or separate different areas of your property with low-level stack walls which reflect the house’s architecture, define the estate, and still permit for amazing views of the landscaping and home beyond.
4. Water Features
Custom pieces can enhance your outdoor area to the next level. A naturally inspired waterfall is an impressive piece for a swimming pool complete with fire features and LED lights that change the color of the water.
Landscaping pillars are the new rage for landscaping ideas. Hardscaping a pillar can enhance any area of your yard making it have an outstanding look.
