What exactly is hardscaping, and how does it apply to my plans? Hardscaping is any non-living feature you wish to add to your property that either adds overall aesthetic or serves some
purpose for the natural parts of your lawn. When deciding on the type of hardscaping you require for your home, multiple questions need to be answered to make sure your new landscape delivers the necessary features you need while also being pleasing to the eye. Our professional landscape designers are equipped to help you answer these questions as well as offering insight on how to making the most of your property.
What Purpose Do I Want My Yard to Fill?
The first and most important question to consider before starting any landscape project is “what exactly do I want to use this outside space for?” Is the front lawn simply for curb appeal or do I want it to function as a yard for my children to play? Climate, handicap accessibility, and entertainment possibilities are several things to consider before attempting to design your lawn. No matter the reason you wish to redesign your yard, Mountainbrook Landscaping can offer designs as well as the knowledge to make sure you get the most out of your property no matter how large or small. During your free consultation, one of our professional landscapers will stop by to take a look at what already exists and what you want to get out of your space. Having an idea up front will not only speed up the process but also give us an idea of where to start on your redesign.
Some of The Features We Offer
Once you have decided on what purpose your space will serve, the actual hardscaping design can begin. Some necessities may be required to keep your plants from soil erosion, such as a retaining wall, but most grasses can keep this in check on their own depending on the surrounding structures and plants. This plays a part in the overall landscape design as much as the look of your lawn. Many features we install include but are not limited to:
Depending on your space and needs, we offer a wide variety of hardscaping designs and features to help make your yard a landscaping paradise.
When it comes to the materials we offer, there are several different types to choose from. Depending on your need, we can create an elegant space for parties or a fun escape for your children, just let us know what you desire. We use several different types of stone, wood, and gravel depending on the look you are going for. Stone tiles, river rocks, crushed granite, or native rock can be added to your landscape to differentiate between different sections of your yard while still having a natural, attractive look. Walkways can be constructed with patterned tiles, or a rock mosaic edged with flowers to incorporate it into the overall design. Any of these hardscaping ideas can give birth to entire layouts!
