Walkways. Stairs and Retaining Walls
Hardscape refers to the use of stone, brick, and other durable materials to create features for exterior landscape design. Hardscaping projects include patios, walkways, fire pits, fireplaces, stairs, ramps, and retaining walls.
Hardscaping is a substantial investment with the potential to transform your outdoor living space. Use hardscaping to:
- make better use of uneven or sloping land
- create dedicated spaces for relaxation and entertaining
- provide structure to your lawns and gardens
- introduce new features to the landscape
Walkways from durable materials, like paver stones, help direct foot traffic through your property, protecting the lawn and garden areas from wear. Viewed from the street, walkways help delivery drivers see the best way to your front door or guide visitors to your garden or patio. We offer walkway stones in many shapes, textures, and styles.
Sloping lawns can be a challenge to mow, be vulnerable to erosion, and increase the risk of slip and fall accidents on your property. Stairs make it easier for guests to get to low-lying parts of your lawn, which could be ideal places for patios, ponds, gardens, or other landscape features. Stone stairways also lend your lawn a stately elegance. Sloping lawns that lie close to the waterline are vulnerable to erosion.
