Hardscaping & Landscaping Services in Covington
What Is Hardscape & Landscaping?
Even though many properties can share similarities, your aesthetic and design preferences set you apart from everyone else. This is your time to shine, and we are here to make it happen. And once you’ve got the grounds you want, we can help maintain everything, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Some of the hardscape features you might want to include are:
- Outdoor Lighting
- Aquatic Features
- Irrigation Systems
One of the benefits of hardscape pieces is that they can help solve issues you’re having. For example, if you tend to have drainage problems, an irrigation system (like a French drain or dry creek bed) doubles as a solution for drainage and a focal point of your yard.
And then, consider which softscape features will complement your choices best, like:
Softscape materials are living organisms, which are better choices for the environment. Bringing changing materials into the functional, constructed materials provides a variation of texture and color for a professional finish.
The importance is in finding balance – too much softscape might take away from areas for entertaining or relaxation, while an excess of hardscape can come across as unbalanced. Our team is here to help you mix and match.
The result will be something that not only gets you outdoors more, but also increases property value and enhances curb appeal. Plus, you’ll be eager for the next time friends visit, because you have a place to gather.
