You may have always pictured for yourself a backyard full of lush, green grass, but that is by no means the only option. Whether you’re struggling with brown grass and wilting plants as a result of draught, or you’ve come to find a blank grassy lawn a little boring, it’s time you consider adding some hardscape to your backyard design.

A hardscape is any area in which materials such as concrete, asphalt, gravel, wood, or bark mulch are used. These hardscape areas can be aesthetically pleasing and provide a base surface or outdoor “floor” that defines distinct areas in the landscape.

Hardscape is the ideal solution for minimizing water use in an area affected by draught. Hardscape materials like pavers and gravel do not require any watering, so there will be a big savings not only in your water bill, but in water waste. Hardscaping costs may be high at first, but over time, a sustainable hardscape will save you a good deal of money. In areas with normal water levels, however, you will want to be mindful of drainage when planning your hardscape designs.

Be sure to do a good deal of planning before you start laying out your hardscape designs. You want to make sure everything works together, and is ideally laid out around a focal point of focal points, perhaps a beautiful tree or water feature.

Whether you’re going to do it yourself, or hire a landscaping design company, make sure you know what it is you want, and you chose plants and designs that will be enjoyed many years down the road, not just current trends.

You can have the backyard you’ve always dreamed of, with a beautiful lawn and patio, or whatever hardscape designs strike your fancy. Hardscaping services can help you plan the backyard of your dreams that you and your family can enjoy for many years to come.
