Hardscaping is truly an art form, offering additional color, texture and structure to the landscape. We create and link outdoor spaces depending on activities and pedestrian flow.
A patio is the extension of your living space and is the central core of your family gatherings as a functional place of calm. Choosing the appropriate material and paying close attention to installation techniques is critical. Anywhere there is a frequently traveled connection between two points is ideal for pedestrian flow and a pathway providing a welcoming effect or a redirection.
Planning for elevation changes and connectivity will provide positive drainage and safety, and provides interesting planting opportunities. What makes the installation of retaining walls and stairs so important is not just the aesthetic value but their strength. Walls must endure lateral earth pressure as well as hydrostatic pressure which is best illustrated by the incredible soil and water loads they can carry. Site preparation and compaction must be done with the utmost care to ensure longevity and stability.
