PROFESSIONAL HARDSCAPE CONTRACTORS
Stamped concrete is patterned or textured to resemble brick, cobblestone, tile, wood, and other materials. It creates a beautiful character to patios, driveways, pools, sidewalks, or even interior flooring. Along with creating an appealing pattern, you can add color to reflect a natural building material.
Why not go for the original material such as cobblestone? These decorative materials are more susceptible to frost heave and allow weeds to grow up through the cracks. Stamped concrete is the next best thing for beautiful flooring and easier maintenance.
How to Create a Beautiful Hardscape
Hardscapes are the non-living components of your landscape. These are structures or decorative elements often made of brick, stone, concrete, or wood. Apart from beautifying your landscape, hardscapes serve functional purposes. Fences help keep your yard secure and private. Fire pits and paved walkways create an outdoor living space where you can relax and entertain guests. If you’re looking to add hardscapes to your yard, here are factors you should consider:
- Design – Whether you have already thought of a particular look for your structures or you don’t know where to start, it’s best to work on your hardscape design with professional hardscape contractors in Walnut Creek. This way, you get an expert opinion on what works well with your landscape and what other elements you should add.
- Landscaping– Although it’s exciting to think of all the possible hardscapes to add to your yard, you can’t go overboard with them. Your soft-scapes, like the grass, trees, and shrubs, should still be the star of the show. After all, they provide natural color and cooling to your landscape.
- Drainage – Improperly placed hardscapes may ruin your landscape’s drainage system. You may end up drowning your plants when you water them or getting your yard flooded when it rains. Work with your patio paver contractor in Walnut Creek to create a drainage plan. This way, you can keep your plants healthy after you have installed a brand-new pergola or fire pit.
- The Proper Materials – Your hardscape materials should complement your home’s exteriors and interiors. Consult with your designer about the best color and texture combinations for your hardscape materials. If you have a rustic-style home, you may want to use “old-time” materials like brick or flagstone. If your house has a contemporary design, stick with composite decking or concrete.
You’ll be on your way to a new, beautiful and practical floor type to welcome guests at your walkway, or to host a dinner on your new patio. We can discuss your vision and make it happen!
