Why Use Hardscaping
When you are working with our team to lay out what your outdoor space will look like, we will provide a number of suggestions based on a number of factors, including the topography of your property as well as what your desires are for the space. At a minimum, hardscaping elements in your outdoor space will add different dimensions overall and complement the softer elements in the design that includes smaller plants and flowers.
Hardscaping can be both decorative as well as functional. For example, you may have an area of your property that has a steep slope to it. Because this is difficult to navigate, a retaining wall may be suggested that also incorporates steps so you can get to the different levels of your property safely while adding decorative stone or brick. You may even add a built-in bench to the retaining wall for seating or displaying flowerpots.
Hardscaping has the ancillary benefit of providing for less maintenance work on your property as well. There is less area to mow grass, fewer plants that need watering or trimming, fewer areas to weed, etc. These areas are also easier to keep clean as a quick spray from a hose will wash away dirt and they can dry quickly in the sun and wind.
Residential and Commercial Hardscaping
No matter if you are looking to enhance your home property or you have a blah commercial location, hardscaping can improve the look while reducing maintenance needs. The right hardscaping options can help to direct foot traffic at your Ellicott City, Marriottsville, Fulton, Highland, Howard County, and the surrounding area property, or it could help to prevent erosion and even provide a focal point for a display.
