The typical homeowner desires a lawn that is green, plush and without irregularities. Characteristics like rocky outcrops are seldom desirable because of the way they contrast with the verdant look most homeowners desire.
A startling thing to realize is that not every lawn needs to be green to look beautiful. Hardscapes epitomize this idea by focusing on low-maintenance landscaping that looks incredible without requiring lot of water.
Hardscapes can also be mixed with traditional landscapes to make a yard have that desirable uniqueness that makes it come alive.
Let’s explore stop reasons that you might consider investing in a hardscape.
1. They’re Low Maintenance
Hardscapes are generally made from stones, concrete, wood or another material that requires significantly less maintenance than a green lawn. This can help reduce the amount of water and general maintenance required to make a landscape have that beautiful look every homeowner desires.
2. They Can Protect Your Property
Another feature of hardscapes is the fact that they can provide new functions designed to protect your property. Retaining walls are an example of hardscapes at work. These prevent erosion while helping to retain moisture in key areas of soil.
Hardscapes can also act as barriers between fireplaces and combustible materials, protect against soil erosion, enhance an area’s ability to retain moisture, help with water diversion to protect key elements like foundations, and prevent water from damaging vulnerable structures made out of materials like wood or metal.
3. They Tie Living Elements Together with the Human Parts of Your Structures
Man-made structures often lack the features required to make them perfectly fit with the natural elements of your lawn. This can make even the most well-kept lawns lack those last few ties that really make them look like professional lawns.
Hardscapes exist to tie the green elements of your lawn together with the man-made parts of your property. This gives your lawn that extra polish required to really set it apart from other landscapes.
Quality Matters When It Comes to Hardscapes
No two hardscapes are created equally. The quality of the materials, the skill of the individuals installing your hardscape, and the care given to every little detail will ultimately determine the success of a hardscape.
