Hardscape makes a great addition to any home. Hardscape adds a unique design element and provides a place for friends and family to gather.

You may be asking yourself “What is hardscape?” Hardscape refers to solid structures that are added to landscape. Hardscape materials include natural stone, pavers, and stacked stone, plus a variety of other options our experts can tell you about.

Adding hardscape to your landscape is also very beneficial.

The benefits of hardscape include:

  • Decreases erosion
  • Increases the value of property
  • Low maintenance
  • Adds dimension
  • Adds/ expands living space

Plus many more!

At Absolute Landscape, we love providing our customers with unique options to add to their landscape. Below are five types of hardscape to consider this season!


A patio adds comfort to any home. Patios allow for relaxing in the backyard and provide a perfect place for entertaining. You can customize your patio by choosing the size, style, and shape. Choosing a unique shaped patio will make your home stand out. Patios are low maintenance and make a beautiful addition to landscape.


Walkways not only enhance landscape designs, they also add a safety element. If your yard contains uneven areas, a walkway can help to provide a safe path to avoid getting hurt. Walkways invite people to follow the decorative path and see the additional features of your home. They also help to keep people from walking on your grass. Walkways tie landscape designs together and add a unique finishing touch.

Fire Pit

A very popular hardscape design is a fire pit. Fire pits add a conversation piece while keeping you warm on chilly nights. They make for a great gathering place where you and your friends can sit and relax while looking at a beautiful fire.

Outdoor Kitchen

What could be better than enjoying the comfort of a kitchen outdoors? Outdoor kitchens provide an area to cook meals and entertain guests. You can add appliances, counter tops, and seating. Cooking outside also eliminates lingering odors from inside your home, especially from seafood. Outdoor kitchens are a very customizable hardscape design.


Custom mailboxes are visually appealing. For many homeowners, a mailbox is the first sight guests see when they arrive to their home. A custom mailbox will create a sense of beauty and uniqueness at first sight. Custom mailboxes also add further security in protecting your mail.
