If you have decided that you want to add some hardscaping to your property, there are three hardscaping design mistakes that you should avoid making. Below are three common hardscaping design mistakes that a lot of people make.

·        Not Keeping a Balanced Design – Make sure you’re keeping a balance between curves and hard lines, along with between soft plantings and materials. Otherwise, your landscape is going to look unnatural and messy.

·        Not Using the Right Materials – If you’re creating a path through your garden, you want to choose materials that are comfortable when you walk on them and require minimal maintenance. When it comes to planters, make sure that you’re choosing durable materials.

·        Not Taking Drainage into Consideration – When you don’t consider drainage, it can cause you problems down the road. A great way that this can be accomplished is to install your patio so that water is drained away from the house. Another good choice is to make sure that you’re designing your drainage so that the water nourishes your plants rather than flooding your basement.
