Crucial Elements for Hardscape Features
There is still plenty of time to transform your outdoor living space, with the help from our award-winning design team. Social distancing takes on a whole new meaning, as an outdoor living environ can add value, curb appeal and additional area for family and friends to gather.
As more and more area homeowners invest in their outdoor space, we are finding many of those same proprietors are experiencing expensive repair costs for hardscapes that were improperly installed. A number of contractors with minimal experience will attempt constructing a wall or pave area, only to realize that it truly takes a team of accomplished, experienced craftsmen to create a feature that has functionality, topography, style and one that is enduring.
Often the repair costs of an outdoor feature inappropriately fabricated can exceed the price of the initial build, due to the fact that it will first have to be dismantled. Our design team will be the first to point out that the most important piece of any (and all) hardscape projects is what you can’t see: the base. A stable, solid base is the most important safety aspect for your hardscape element.
Our hardscape foremen have over 35 years combined experience and have completed the Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute’s certification. All of our hardscapes are backed by a 5-year warranty. In addition to design and new installs, we also offer repair and general maintenance of existing hardscape spaces.
The cool, fall weather is right around the corner. Call our office today and invite one of our award-winning designers to provide you some creative ideas for recreating your outdoor space and walk you through the installation process. No obligation. That’s just what we do…and we do it well.
We also offer pressure washing, re-sanding and sealing as part of our many services. By the way, it’s not too early to begin thinking about holiday decorations! YES, we do that, too!
Mulching has many benefits, but it must be applied correctly. We recommend maintaining a two- to four-inch layer of mulch in all areas where there are plants.
A winter filled with constant freezing and thawing throughout the season can have a negative impact on a lawn.
Winter is usually a time when people think about what they will do in their yard once the snow melts.
With lawns covered in snow they seem a bit 'out of sight out of mind,' but that shouldn't be the case! Here are a couple things to consider when it comes to your lawn in winter.
