Additional outdoor living space.
The most obvious benefit is adding living space to your home. A patio can serve as an extension to your living area and provide a great place to spend time with the family cooking and dining.
Correct a grade.
Retaining walls, stairs and hardscaping in general can help correct the slope of your yard and add beauty to it while being functional.
Did someone say barbecue?
Speaking of cooking, adding hardscaping to your yard can enhance the barbecue and cooking area and provide a peaceful place to have a small dinner or a large party.
Safety and Direction.
Positioning your hardscaping provides a clear path for your guests and your family to move about the yard with purpose and direction. This also adds an element of safety especially when paired with outdoor lighting.
A pergola or arbor provides a welcome respite on a hot sunny day and adds a comfortable sense of enclosure.
Define an area.
Walkways, patios and stairs can add significance to a space as well as lead the way through the yard.
Adding Pergolas and lattice to your space can create privacy or the feeling of a backyard getaway.
Having an area to spend time can add a playspace when needed. Patios can serve as home to play equipment or just a place to build backyard forts.
Add texture and color.
Stone pavers have dual purpose in adding color and texture to your yard and give you the opportunity to add your style and touch to the space!
Add interesting lines and design.
Adding sidewalks and pathways to your space can create interesting lines and shapes that make your yard stand out from the rest.
