Bring the Wow Factor Through Hardscaping

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 1 June , 2016

While you may not be familiar with the term hardscaping, when utilized effectively, it can really give your yard a powerful wow factor.

Hardscaping at a Glance

Hardscaping is essentially a term used to describe brick and mortar as it relates to your yard. It includes the installations of pavers, concrete, decks, patios, arbors, driveways, gates, etc.

Planning for Hardscaping in Your Yard

If you’re considering a hardscaping element for your yard, it’s essential to take the entire yard into consideration. Making the mistake of approaching the project by piecemeal is akin to building a house one room at a time.

A good thing to do is to look at your entire outdoor space and consider how one moves around in it. Pay special attention to what areas are seen from your windows and what functions you want to assign to specific areas of the yard. For example, you can identify a specific area for an outdoor kitchen while another place may be perfect for a fire pit.

Hardscaping Makes Drainage Easier

Controlling the flow of rainwater is much more manageable with hardscaping materials. With stones and other materials, you can direct the water to low spots so that it can better soak into the soil or into submerged drainage pipes.

Balance is the Key With Hardscaping

Randomly plopping down boulders is not going to cut it. What you’re looking for is a balance with other forms of landscaping materials so that everything looks natural. One good suggestion is to have hardscaped features outlined by flowerbeds and shrubs.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
