The start of summer is right around the corner, so it is the perfect time to venture out into your backyard. Right now is a great time to expand and enhance your landscape with beautiful hardscaping features. You can use hardscaping to create the outdoor living space you always wanted. There are a few residential hardscaping trends you should follow, so you can enhance the outside of your property.
Keep It Hot
A growing trend within hardscape design is the installation of fire pits. Having a fire pit on your backyard is a great way to entertain guests especially during cookouts. You can choose from wood-burning or gas units for your fire pits. Regardless of the source of the fire, a fire pit is a great focal point for any property and will enhance the look and feel of your home. It is important to remember to be safe while operating a fire pit and to keep pets and small children at a distance while it is lit.
Take the cooking outside of your home by installing a kitchen right in your backyard. Growing in popularity among homeowners, outdoor kitchens are quickly shifting from a simple grill to a fully functional space. You can design your outdoor kitchen to be as intricate as you want with natural stone flooring and high quality appliances. You can even integrate a fire pit to be the center of your outdoor kitchen.
A retaining wall is a great feature to install if you have slopes or hills on your property because it can prevent soil degradation. You can create your retaining walls out of a variety of materials ranging from concrete pavers to natural stone. A retaining wall is a great feature to install around your home garden, creating a focal point. You can design your retaining walls so that they can blend in your landscape design seamlessly.
