Beautiful retaining walls, brick patios and decks are considered “hardscapes” in the landscaping world. Hardscapes will help shape the personality of your outside space. From stone pathways, and luxurious patios, to classic-looking water fountains, and retaining walls, it’s difficult to imagine a landscape design without elements of hardscape. Hardscapes help define your yard as simply not just a section of the outdoors, but an intimate part of your home.
