Hardscaping Tips

  • If you have your heart set on a pool, you can add an eye catching waterfall feature with larger boulders and rocks. That way, you can entertain in your back yard and have so much more to look at than a wet hole in the ground.
  • You can use stone to build a retaining wall to serve a number pf purposes. You can use it to add privacy to an outdoor entertainment space or you can use it as an added feature next to a pool or pond.
  • You can add tons of curb appeal to your front yard by creating a walkway that takes advantage of the multicolored rocks and stones that are naturally abundant in the valley. For an added pop of color, you can throw in a little softscaping without sacrificing your low-maintenance dreams.
