Latest Hardscape Trends

Hardscaping Adds Punch to your Landscape

Nothing is better in the warmer months than hosting an outdoor barbeque or pool party, and installing the perfect outdoor lighting makes it possible for our parties and get-togethers to last way past sunset. A variety of outdoor lighting is available for every taste, from contemporary to Arts and Crafts, and in a myriad of finishes and colors.

Outdoor lighting is the perfect accent piece to highlight a water feature or hardscape. Hardscapes add continuity and flow between your house and garden in the form of a patio, walkway, decorative wall, sitting wall, pillar, retaining wall, ramp, curb or driveway. These architectural additions to your landscape can be created from concrete, brick, wood, pavers, stone, or whatever material meets your home’s design and budget.

Including a water feature in your landscaping brings beauty and tranquility to your outdoor environment. The sound of water trickling down a wall or flowing across a bed of rocks brings sound and movement into the landscape. Waterscapes, fountains, ponds and waterfalls can be dramatic or restful, they can add beauty to stark walls, invite wildlife into your environment and help you relax.
