Modern Hardscape Design

Hardscaping refers to all of the non-living elements in landscaping, such as a brick patio, a stone wall, or a wooden arbor. Hardscape elements can also define the use of a space, such as with a driveway, or it can lead people through different zones of a landscape, like a gravel path that winds through a grassy area and into a secluded garden.

Hardscape elements to enhance your property

  • Stone retaining walls to make planting areas or convert a slope to flat yard space.

  • Concrete patios are a classic low-maintenance and versatile patio option.

  • Brick patios offer a more upscale and natural look.

  • Flagstone patios can be a low-cost option for natural stone outdoor flooring.

  • Tile patios are a great way to dress up a concrete patio.

  • Stone walkways are ideal for garden paths and doorway approaches.

  • Gravel paths offer a more natural alternative to brick, concrete, or stone.

  • Stone landscape steps with heavy stone slabs make beautiful outdoor steps.

  • Metal fences include coated steel, the modern standard, but iron is still an option.

  • Wooden fences use the most versatile fence (and hardscaping) material.

  • Wooden decks are hardscaping components just like patios.

  • Wooden arbors or gazebos enhance a landscape while providing shade and beauty.

  • Pergolas are like arbors, but are attached to a house or other building.
