The difference between a beautiful and an eyesore of a yard can really set you apart in your neighborhood. A beautiful yard can improve your home’s curb value and provide a space that can be enjoyed by family and friends. Some yards can be more challenging to maintain than others and thinking of an attractive solution can be a challenge. For homeowners with difficult yards, Driveway Specialists recommends hardscaping services.
What Is Hardscaping?
A hardscape is any type of inanimate object that can found and incorporated into a yard. These objects can be anything from bricks to wood and can be used for walkways, retaining walls and driveways.
When Can I Use Hardscaping?
- If there is a spot in your yard that sees a lot of foot traffic, you should consider a walkway for people to get from a to b. If you’re a big fan of backyard gatherings, a patio would be great for you!
- If your home has a drainage issue and there is some flooding after rain or melting snow, hardscaping is for you. In ground pipes covered by stones are a great fix for flooding while still looking nice.
- If you find that your home is a bit too close to your neighbor’s, a privacy wall is a great way to get back from of that privacy. Typically, privacy walls are made from wood or brick.
- For yards damaged from soil erosion, a retaining wall will help to prevent runoff. These cement, brick or stone walls help to keep soil from leaving your yard.
