How is your curb appeal holding up these days? As we move into spring, now is the time to tend to your landscaping. In the process, consider adding hardscaping. Hardscaping is the architecture that goes hand in hand with your landscaping. When working together, these upgrades will improve the value of your home and have you as one of the best-looking homes on the block. From adding new walkways and pathways, to retention walls and backyard ideas, try some of these ideas from your Denver Hardscaping Company.
New Walkways and Pathways
When existing walkways or pathways outside of your home begin to fall apart, it can be a safety hazard. If the walkways around your home are starting to decay, become uneven or are falling apart, consider updating them. In addition, while you are adding new, you can also see if there are other areas you would like to add paths. For instance, if you have a garden area or relaxing area, you can add a path through the grass. When adding paths, interlocking paving stones is a great option. At an affordable price, you can choose from a variety of colors, shapes and patterns that complement your home. They also will last as they will not crack, fade or chip.
Retaining walls provide an upscale aesthetic appeal to your landscaping, all while serving an important purpose. Many homes have yards that are on a hill. Retaining walls can add structure and stability to the area by leveling it out. It can also help prevent too much water from pooling up at the lowest part of the slope. In the front, many love this option by adding a flower bed in front of the house with a retaining wall. For those that have a large back yard on a hill, a retaining wall can add dimension. You can create a stairway connected to a retention wall and it will help separate the two areas and will give your back yard more depth. There are a variety of ways to incorporate these into your landscaping, so check out DIY’s “10 Things You Must Know About Retaining Walls” for more.
Hardscaping is perfect to add different elements to a plain backyard. First, consider adding a patio area. Even if the area is small, you can add a small area of pavers to place a firepit that can have chairs around it in a circle. Next, if you have a garden in your backyard, consider sprucing it up with a retention wall, or a pathway around it. This may help too when caring for the garden as it will enable you to put down any supplies on a sturdy surface. Last, if you have a pool, consider adding pavers around it. If it is an underground pool, you can use brick pavers to enhance the look of your area to become the perfect space to lounge in.
