Hardscaping in Charlottetown
Hardscaping in Charlottetown
Hardscaping refers to man-made features within landscaping architecture. This includes paved or stone walkways, walls, paths, and of course patios. Even something like a fence or large lawn ornament can be grouped into this category. Think anything made of a solid material that cuts a “hard” line through the rest of the yard while still maintaining an organic flow.
In the age of the outdoor living trend, where some of our Charlottetown clients are building full living rooms in their back yard, hardscaping is an important tool in modern landscaping.
In a lush softscaped yard it can be hard imagining putting a slab of concrete in the middle of it. But at Atlantic Deck Systems, the patios we create are far from that. It doesn’t matter what material you choose, we’ll make it flow with the shape of your yard and everything else in it. Therefore, you don’t have to feel limited in your material choices!
One of the most versatile patio materials, concrete can be poured into any shape making it ideal for a hardscaping feature. You can stamp it to imitate natural stone, and color it to make it even more unique!
Flagstone and other natural stones like marble is the most natural option. They come in neutral shades and irregular shapes and blend flawlessly with the environment around them.
If you like an old-world look, brick could be the choice for you. It can be cut and arranged to shape and gives a rich aesthetic to any yard.
Similar to concrete, pavers have it all covered. Created for easy installation, with many sizes, shapes and colors to choose from. They even come in eco-friendly recycled plastic.
Another great option for blending, gravel can be poured into any perimeter you lay out and looks very natural.
For patio and walkway construction, it’s easy to incorporate hardscaping into softscaping. All you need is the right creative team to execute it properly. Over the years we’ve plotted out many organic and impressive patios for our Charlottetown clients that tied their yard together. Don’t imagine your yard as complete until you’ve combined both hardscaping and softscaping.
