Why limit your living space to your indoor rooms when you can add a beautiful area outside to enjoy with family and friends? Hardscape design can enhance your home aesthetically and add value and function to your outdoor living spaces. Hardscape design elements are the backbone of every outstanding landscape design! With some ideas from HGTV, JR Anderson has compiled a number of great tips on creating and installing a successful hardscape design.
- Choose Material that Reflects Your Personal Style - Will you have casual gatherings, formal parties, or a quiet personal retreat? JR Anderson helps match your hardscape materials to your personal style. Choose a few materials that complement your home’s interior and exterior to bring multiple colors and textures into the space. Your materials should look natural with the elements around the design, as well as with the design construction. Your materials should also fit the natural lines of your home and outdoor living space.
- Rely on an Expert’s Expertise – Your vision and our plan combine to create your perfect outdoor living space. HGTV suggests having a focal point in your hardscape project. This focal point draws your eyes to the new, extended living space from the interior of your home. Once you have chosen your design plan, JR Anderson prepares a plan for draining issues and for insuring the structural integrity of your project. JR Anderson also properly prepares the site. While addressing drainage and structural concerns we still project your style into the design!
- Use Landscaping To Create a ‘Finished Look’ - HGTV suggests always combining ‘vegetation in relationship to hard surfaces’. We agree wholeheartedly! There are plants, vegetation, and flowers that can thrive in any weather or habitat. JR Anderson provides tips on what plants thrive best in your area. Finally, complete your new hardscaped area with the softening texture and color of greenery and/or flowers.
