Improve your yard with hardscaping by incorporating hardscaping elements such as stone, rock and sand in your yard and garden landscape. Landscaping not only makes your home more beautiful but also can make it more valuable. In fact, high quality landscaping can add between 5 and 11 percent to the value of your home.
Good landscaping is about more than just plants. Paths, benches, walls, water features are all part of hardscaping and can make or break the look of your yard and garden landscape.
Your home’s exterior makes the first impression and when you improve your yard with hardscaping as part of your overall landscaping design it becomes a critical part of increasing your home’s value. A carefully thought out landscape using hardscapes allows homeowners to express their creativity and personality.
A well made concrete walkway or garden path not only stands up to years of hard use, it enhances the natural landscape and complements your house’s exterior features. Traditional walkway materials such as brick and stone can be pricey and often difficult to install. As an easy and inexpensive alternative, you can build a new concrete path using manufactured molds. Using manufactured molds will create a beautiful pathway that mirrors the texture and appearance of brick or natural stone with all the durability and economy of poured concrete. Because of the variety of molds, you can create a pathway, patio or walkway that matches your home’s style.
Using manufactured molds to improve your yard with hardscaping also allows for coloring the concrete mix for a natural looking finish and is a great way for blending your path or walkway into your landscape design.
