Don’t Neglect Your Hardscaping! Upgrade Before Summer Arrives


New walkways, patios, or retaining walls can overhaul the look of your yard.

The hardscaping in your yard plays many important roles. Whether it’s giving you a clear path to the pool, a comfortable place to relax and eat, or even helping form the structure or your pool itself, hardscaping that’s seen better days should be upgraded before summer gets here. Maybe your hardscaping is fairly new and still in great condition, but you’re ready to add another piece. Here are common applications for hardscaping you should consider adding or upgrading this spring.


A clear and inviting walkway from the different parts of your yard to the house and between each other helps keep people off of the grass and adds an organized feel to your yard. After a summer storm when the ground is wet and muddy, a hardscape walkway will keep you out of the mud and keep the kids from tearing up the lawn while it dries.


Patios are the perfect entertaining area. The right hardscaping can add plenty of life to your patio and entire backyard. A patio gives you a comfortable place to arrange lounge chairs, picnic tables, and other lawn furniture, or can be the base for your outdoor kitchen or fireplace.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls serve a structural purpose in your yard, usually when building a pool on a hillside, but they don’t have to be plain and strictly structural. Patios that flow right into a retaining wall give an element of uniformity to your hardscaping and improve the overall look of your yard. Retaining walls can also be used to form the basis of sheer waterfall features.
