Hardscape Design

Residential Hardscape Design and Installation

Hardscape Design and Installation certainly defines outdoor space in the same way that planting beautifies outdoor space. A Successful construction design and implementation has the ability to define space in a way that brings continuity and flow between the house and garden. It fortifies the functionality of the garden, pulling the user out as a participant rather than a mere observer. The results are typically immediate and in most cases permanent. It allows landscape to become architecture.

Outdoor rooms are created by intermingling and manipulating floors, ceilings, walls, and doors. Different media for each of those elements are chosen and integrated to bring about contracting garden experiences. Garden walls may consist of fencing, wooden screening, solid panels of brick and stone, short retaining walls, or taller, free-standing enclosure walls. Floors can be segments of suspended decking, all types of paving, or visually can even be horizontal planes of water. Ceilings are normally partial ceiling such as awning, arbors, or trellises, but will sometimes become a fully functional ceiling as with the summerhouse, pavilion, or pool house.
