Do you look at your outdoor space and wonder, can we add a hardscape? Is there enough space? Or, what is a hardscape anyway? A hardscape is a blend of a variety of natural or synthetic materials, such as hardscape stone, hardscape pavers, mulch, fire pits, hardscape lighting, fencing, drainage, etc. to form an outdoor living space that suites your needs. We construct hardscape patio, sitting and retaining walls, walk ways and much more. Let us evaluate your property. With the square footage of the space and a quick survey of the property layout and its requirements, we are sure we can help design a beautiful hardscape that is right for you.
If you enjoy the view of gardens, grass landscaping, or simply wish to incorporate a soft play space for your children or pets, it is our job to turn your ideas into reality. Let us design a unique and functional landscape that will enhance your backyard or front yard experience. Also, with Encore Landscaping’s decorative yet practical hardscapes and stone work, your hardscape landscape will complement and blend perfectly with the unique design features of your home and property. Our high quality and detailed hardscape installations, when blended with greenscapes, are sure to enhance the beauty of your property and catch the eyes of your neighbors.
Customized Hardscapes and Stone Work Design
Adding a hardscape will decrease water usage and likely increase the value of your overall property. At Encore Landscaping, we pay close attention to detail when designing and installing hardscapes. It is our top priority that we ensure a natural flow of traffic throughout your outdoor space, from circulation patterns in busy areas of your yard to a window, doorway, and driveway.
With a little creativity and imagination we determine an ideal size, shape and location for a patio, hardscape feature or other hardscape installation of your particular interest. We first consider how you and your family will use the space, as well as the total number of people using it on a regular basis. Size and type of outdoor furniture will then be taken into account, to ensure optimal circulation of traffic.
If you are interested in incorporating unique features such as hardscape lights or custom stone work, we can easily work that into the design of your backyard hardscape or front yard. Maybe you are interested in natural stoneworks, a custom hardscape fire pit or led hardscape lighting. No matter how big or small a hardscape and stonework project, or whether a common feature or one with an untraditional purpose, we have you covered. We specialize in problem-solving and providing customized, innovative, and functional designs and solutions that also beautify your outdoor spaces.
At Encore Landscaping, we focus on effective remediation of all surface water on your property. Our sustainable recommendation is to mitigate and slow down the flow of any surface water that readily exists or collects during rain storms. It is imperative to ensure that the water is absorbed locally rather than flowing into storm drains or polluting streams and rivers with contaminants. Our landscape plans include redirecting surface water to irrigate your planting beds whenever possible, keeping it off your pavement, hardscape or stonework. Encore Landscaping can also create rain gardens that flourish under this extra amount of irrigation and accent with pavers, edging, stone, and mulch to contain it long enough to be absorbed.
Encore Landscaping hardscapes and stonework projects typically contain 2 or more of the following features:
Paver sidewalks, natural stone garden pathways
Patios with sitting walls, fire pits and pillars, with or without lighting
Boulders and berms for accent and protection
Crushed stone walkway with stepping stones
Low accent walls and retaining walls
Edgestone borders and accent stonework
Stone riverbeds for drainage and accent features
Mulch walkway with stones in front yard
Decorative stone work and crushed stone pathways
Fencing for accent or camouflage
Our backyard designs can also include mulch pathways to your patio, the heart of your outdoor space. Encore Landscaping front yard hardscapes and stonework designs maximize curb appeal by integrating rock gardens, river rocks, and stone retaining walls, all with drainage issues and desired focal points of your landscape in mind.
The Beauty of Hardscapes
In landscape design, hardscapes are essentially the non-plant elements in your landscape that complement your greenscapes and provide attractive functionality to your outdoor sanctuary.
Encore Landscaping doesn’t believe in cookie cutter landscapes. Every hardscape construction project is installed like no other, to make it as personal and customized as possible. The beauty of hardscaping is that there are few limits to its purpose and aesthetic appeal, bringing us to the advantages of hardscapes in general.
Advantages of Hardscapes and Stonework
Hardscaping is what establishes a purposeful framework for garden spaces and provides numerous advantages, including the following.
Extended Entertainment Space
When the weather is beautiful, it’s nice to be able to move your leisure activities outside, including things like cooking, gardening, and entertaining, among others. Although your home may accommodate your family, it may not comfortable suite the special requirements for entertaining. Expand outside with one of our hardscape designs and not only entertain more guests but also reduce foot traffic inside your home.
Low Maintenance Longevity
Although turfgrass and lawn space has well-earned value in a landscape, too much of it is not only unsustainable, but also requires regular manual labor as well as undesirable cost to properly maintain. Walkways alone can minimize grass space enough to make your garden care much less labor intensive. Even better, you could install a hardscape and not only conserve on the cost of watering, but also have a decorative and functional space that will last for several years.
Hardscapes and stonework are highly effective and sustainable elements that aid in water conservation, rather than contributing to water lost. Proper installation of a hardscape is not only functional but could also be irrigation-free. We could incorporate a serene water feature to repurpose runoff, for instance.
Increased Property Value
Anytime you add both aesthetic appeal and function to your landscape with Encore’s quality hardscape installations, you add usable square footage for potential buyers to envision using. Hardscapes create invaluable extensions to your home that are far-reaching in their versatility
Linear consistency and form are important in your garden space, but can only go so far in terms of visual interest. Encore hardscape installations will add multiple dimensions to your outdoor space, turning wide-open spaces into multi-level gardens with weaving walkways, water features offering serenity, and defined edges for flower beds.
In our dedication to conservation, our hardscapes offer erosion control whenever possible. Our stone barriers, for example, can reduce erosion and keep your ground space intact for many years.
