Before adding hardscaping to your yard, do some research. Ask yourself what you want to use the space for and who is going to be using it. Assess how much land you have available for use. Also, take into consideration all relevant drainage issues. Design with the intent of following the land naturally and staying in balance with the scene. Keep plants and trees to balance out the hardscape elements. Another aspect to consider is professional guidance from a company that knows your style.
- Do your research and due diligence. It will pay off greatly in the end.
- Drainage is very important and must be done during the research process.
- Plan it yourself and see if it’s really what you want to do.
“If done well, it can also be the choice that saves you from considerable time and attention to maintenance.”
