Hardscape Design Materials
Hardscape materials consist of durable elements that last for decades. They are extremely low-maintenance and there are a vast amount of materials to choose from. Carefully chosen stone colors and textures will provide a beautiful end result. It’s important that the finished product integrates perfectly with the pre-existing landscape and home. Below are several types of popular hardscape materials used in kitchen, fireplace and pool projects.
Flagstone: Naturally Beautiful Hardscaping
Flagstone is a popular hardscape material that is used to construct patios, unique walkways and much more. This material is not only beautiful but has an unsurpassed natural elegance all their own. You can choose from a variety of different colors and shapes to suit your taste and your project.
Clay Brick Pavers: Fit for Any Environment
One of the most traditional and time-tested materials is brick. Clay brick has been around for very many years due to its’ long-lasting durability. It’s uniformity will give your home an old world style all its own while it’s the many of weights, shapes, cuts and color selections will give you endless options.
Patio Pavers: Maximize Design Flexibility
For a distinctively customizable patio, you might want to consider trying concrete pavers. Concrete pavers come in a variety of different designs that provide unlimited design possibilities. The pavers can mimic clay brick or even natural stone and come in any color, finish, size, or shape of your choice.
Travertine: Beauty and versatility
Travertine is the most popular material we use due to its versatility and the vast array of natural colors available. What we love most about these limestone pavers is it doesn’t tend to get as hot in the sun compared to brick or concrete. This asset makes it a favorite for homeowners with few trees and lots of afternoon sun. It’s also great for decking around a pool.
