Warmer weather has finally arrived in the Kansas City area, and with it, the desire for many homeowners to get outside and start renovating their landscape. This summer, before you invest the time, energy, and money it takes to overhaul your yard with standard mulch and flower arrangements, consider incorporating hardscaping elements into your outdoor property design.
Hardscaping consists of the hard, man-made elements of your home’s landscape. From fire pits to driveways to retaining walls and more, hardscaping creates the backbone of a landscape’s architecture. Often made of concrete, gravel, metal, stone, or brick, adding hardscaping elements to your landscape provides your home with a number of benefits, including:
Unlike typical softscaping (when just natural elements such as soil and plants are used), hardscaping features help to keep water in place, ensuring there is no leakage from areas that need it the most. This allows you to use less water when caring for your plants, creating less waste – which benefits both your wallet, and the planet.
Extra Entertainment Space
With hardscaping, your space for entertaining grows thanks to elements like a seated area on a backyard patio, cooking space like a fire pit or outdoor kitchen, or even stone paths that show off your award-winning vegetable garden.
One of the headaches often caused by landscapes is the constant erosion that comes from midwestern rain showers. However, with hardscaping, erosion is kept to a minimum thanks to stone barriers and retaining walls that can help lead repeat rain water away.
Added Property Value
When you add any kind of hardscaping project to your landscape, your property value will instantly increase. A major selling feature, hardscaping creates new dimensions for your space, and gives potential buyers more options for their own families. Not to mention, hardscaping will make your home the envy of the entire neighborhood.
