Hardscaping Tips for Maryland Homeowners

Hardscapes add structure to a home

Here at Evergreen Gene’s, Inc., we’re a landscaping company that specializes in hardscaping as well. If you’re a Maryland homeowner that’s unsure of how to execute your hardscape design, then keep reading! We have some hardscaping tips to share that will benefit any Maryland homeowner.

When in Doubt, Match the Architecture of Your Home

Use your home’s exterior as a guide for your hardscape design. Choosing elements that don’t compliment each other will make your yard or lawn space seem like a random experiment. Design with purpose in mind. Farm designs utilize ponds and wooden fences, while colonial styles utilize stone or brick walls, gravel walkways, and fountains. For a more modern look, courtyards, which include sculptures and stepping stones, are an option. 

Hardscapes Work as A System

While it may not be realistic to design your hardscape all at once, you do need to look at the big picture. When you come to a contractor, you should have your full vision laid out. Figuring out later down the line that you want to add a stone wall or water feature might not be possible due to obstruction.

Don’t Neglect The Drainage Process 

If you’re a Maryland homeowner, then you know that the weather is pretty unpredictable. It may be sunny one day and then rain for days on end. If you design your hardscape with drainage in mind, then you can stop flooding and prevent soil erosion. Retaining walls and sloped patios help with drainage along with permeable pavers. 

Hire a Professional

Taking on a hardscaping project is overwhelming, especially when you’re not an expert. If you’re not an expert, then call the experts. We’re a landscaping company that will help with every part of the process when you don’t have the time or expertise. If you take pride in your beautiful Maryland home, then hiring us will only enhance that pride. You’ll look out at your yard or lawn and bask in the beauty of it. Designing a hardscape should never be a guessing game. It takes vision, skill, knowledge, and accuracy. That’s where we come in. We cater to Maryland homeowners living in the Anne Arundel County area. Give us a call.
