What Does Hardscaping Add To Landscaping?

Is your beautifully landscaped yard lacking something? Imagine enjoying a morning cup of coffee on your patio, sitting around your fire pit on a chilly night, or rather than trudging through the grass to access your yard, you're now able to use a beautifully paved path. 

No matter the style of your home, there is a paver or natural stone that will blend naturally with it. A well built hardscape is timeless and will add value to your home without demanding the level of care a lawn requires. Hardscapes include walkways, walls, fences, gazebos, fountains, and any non-living element. When a hardscape is installed it adds a functional feature to a landscape while creating a visually appealing, low maintenance area.

The benefits of hardscaping include:
  • Improves accessibility to other outdoor areas.
  • Excellent for homes in arid regions, like Houston, 
  • Low maintenance for people with a busy schedule and who don't have the time to maintain a yard. 
  • Low maintenance for people who aren't blessed with a "green thumb." 
  • Creates areas of interest, such as an outdoor kitchen, play area, zen garden, etc. 
  • Hardscapes serve as the framework for softscape elements. 
  • Increase in property value.
  • Hardscapes lessen the likelihood of property erosion.

A hardscape provides functionality and beauty to any Houston yard. It creates an aesthetically appealing area for recreation and relaxation, and substantially increases the value of a homeowner's property.

  4. Couldn't agree more. I just picked up some EP Henry pavers and plan to start my own hardscaping project this weekend. It definitely adds a unique appeal to the backyard.
