5 Unique Hardscaping Ideas For Your Outdoor Space

When most people think of hardscaping, they think of the obvious elements.  Your patio and area around your pool are examples of common hardscapes.  However, with a bit of imagination and creativity, you can create an oasis using smart hardscaping solutions. Whatever hardscaping ideas you might have, now is the time to bring your vision to life.

Hardscaping Ideas To Set Your Yard Apart

Your backyard is an extension of your home.  Does it get enough use?  What could you improve to maximize its value?  These are questions to ask yourself when thinking about hardscaping. Add elements that will add value to your home, but also value to your family.  Adding just a few unique features can have a dazzling effect.

1) Games

Add an element of fun in your outdoor space. A synthetic putting green provides a place for kids to putt around or can be designed with an experienced golfer in mind. Cement squares can be set into the ground to form a life-sized chessboard. Let your imagination guide you!

2) Water Feature

Perhaps you live on a busy street and need to drown out traffic noises.  Or maybe you’re looking for a hardscape feature that will elevate your outdoor space.  Water features are perfect for both situations. Fountains and waterfalls provide an ambiance of tranquility and elegance.

3) Fireplace

A fireplace adds a luxurious feel to outdoor living space. It’s the perfect gathering spot and makes an impressive impact.  Cozy up with a good book on a cool evening, or roast marshmallows with the kids.

4) Pavilions

Hardscaping is ideal for defining outdoor spaces.  A pavilion with a dining area is a clear destination for enjoying a meal, while a pavilion with chairs and hammocks designates that area for relaxation.

5) Stairs

If your backyard sits on a hill, you might wonder how to make it accessible.  Stairs ensure that no part of your yard is wasted space.  It can create flow from living space to play areas or can lead visitors into a hillside garden.  Don’t feel limited by challenging terrain.  There’s always a solution!

Your Space, Your Way

When hardscaping and landscaping are in harmony, the result is a stunning and functional space.  Put your personality into your backyard as though it were another room in your home.  Outdoor design has come a long way in recent years, providing customized options for hardscaping, furniture, accessories.
