When looking to achieve a balanced, peaceful yard, remember that hardscaping is just as important as natural features.
These man-made components, such as walkways, patios, artificial stream beds, terraced landscape/gardens, pathways, water features, and walls, are an important part of the perfect outdoor living space. Hardscape elements can add a great complement to your organic space whether it is adding a welcoming attraction to the entryway of your home, accenting your back yard, or just some overall customized flare to your landscape.
Stones evoke a feeling of permanence and strength. By uniquely arranging rocks and boulders in your landscaping you can enjoy not only the aesthetic benefits but also the healing, grounding nature of the rock’s mountain-like properties.
Once you’ve followed through on the elements, to plan your next hardscaping project, you will be well on your way to adding a functional space and a pleasing contrast to nature in your outdoor space.
