Hardscaping Tips

1. Combine Interior and Exterior Design: Your outdoor space should compliment your indoor space. The key is to have the design flow from the interior of the house and add an addition to the interior design. An easy approach is to examine the view from the inside of your house and create an extension to the outside.

2. Outdoor Rooms: There are so many ways to achieve this you can create an out door “room” you can start with a physical wall. The wall in addition to hard surfaces underfoot can enhance this effect.

3. Material Investment: Hardscaping materials may be expensive, however it’s important that the project is well built. The lifetime of the hardscaping project will bring value to your home as well as pleasure to your outdoor space.
