Hello! We at Molloy Landscape hope that you had a nice 4th of July. Last Friday we told you we’d be concentrating on hardscaping this month. So today we are going to look at some tips on how you choose your hardscaping type.
If you are interested in having some hardscaping put in, here are some tips that you can use to help you find the right landscaping type.
Select Your Theme When Choosing a Hardscaping Type
Find the right theme for you and use it as your focus. But you also want to make certain that your chosen style matches the interior of your home. You also want to be sure your yard doesn’t have a variety of elements. This could make it look like a yard sale or outdoor museum.
Have a Plan in Mind Before You Choose a Type
There’s a good chance you won’t be able to do everything at once. But you want to have a plan for the whole area. You may not have the money to put in a pond now, but if you do in the future, you’ll need the space for it. Having a plan can make this a lot easier.
Consider Drainage When You Choose a Hardscaping Type
The way that water drains is often altered when you put in a wall or patio. When you include permeable components, water is able to go in the ground. Not only that, but a very flat and level patio can turn into a swimming pool very quickly and easily when it rains. So, you should slope it slightly.
Follow Natural Curves With Your Type of Hardscaping
If your yard only has straight lines, it’s boring and looks very unnatural. You want nature’s shapes and your landscaping to work together. You don’t need to have sidewalks and paths that are linear. Let some parts of the landscape arc, sweep, and bend.
These are four tips that you can use to help you with creating a hardscaping type of which you can be proud. We have helped many homeowners such as yourself, and we are ready to help you with your hardscaping project. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
