Hardscaping is the structure of your Landscape that adds texture, form and value to your overall look. Hardscaping is the base for creating your own “look” and design. It enhances the beauty of the plants themselves while blending your home’s architecture, with your landscape plantings. Our design team can create a hardscape for you in many different ways…
- Custom Patios
- Stairs and Walkways
- Retaining Walls
- Raised Beds
Hardscapes are primarily composed of natural stone, fabricated stone, metal and/or wood. Each of these material types provides plenty of choices with several different styles and functions. Allow our experts at Aurora Landscape to walk you through your options to create the look and feel that you are looking for.
Natural Stone lends itself to being more spontaneous and earthy. A whole range of colors, textures, and forms are available to us when working with Natural Stone. Natural Stone also blends well into existing Landscapes.
Man-made blocks and pavers are more linear and uniform. They offer cleaner and sometimes, more modern lines in a Landscape Design. They are available in more and more different patterns, colors, shapes and sizes which allow them to blend seamlessly into many Landscapes. They have color and texture as with Natural Stone but also maintain their linear strength throughout the years.
Metals, such as steel, aluminum, and copper also add a new dimension of color and texture to any Landscape. Metals can be incorporated structurally as with pathway edging or can be used as accent pieces to create a special or signature look. Whether contemporary or earthy, metals work for a wide range of applications and styles.
