Are you looking to add a new element to your home in the form of an outdoor living area? Are you struggling to find the right medium for your patio, deck, outdoor kitchen, or latest outdoor space creation?
With so many products and an endless amount of possibilities, selecting the right hardscape medium can be difficult, especially if you don’t know about the various potentials associated with the different designs.
Read on to learn more about the different hardscape designs you can incorporate into your next outdoor living area, no matter what type of home you have.
Stone pavers are the epitome of hardscape mediums when it comes to building paths in an outdoor living area. Whether you want a path from your front door to your driveway or a paved route to your backyard pool or grill, stone pavers provide easy accessibility with practical design.
Stone mediums can withstand rain, snow, or other harsh elements and aren’t overbearing when it comes to design. They fit nicely on top of a grass lawn, blend well with an outdoor patio, and can provide the elegant entrance to your home that you’ve always wanted.
Wood is one of the most universal hardscape mediums and is popular among those who are installing a new custom deck. Wood not only looks rich and peaceful, it also can be combined with plastic to form a composite medium that can withstand the outdoor elements.
When accessorizing your new deck, wood provides a wide range of customizable additions. Outdoor kitchens with wooden cabinets look great on a wood deck. Wooden patio furniture is rustic yet beautiful when on top of a wood deck. Pair your new deck with a custom wooden gazebo to add a new element that looks pleasing and is beneficial for sunny days when you want some shade.
Brick Patios and Borders
A new brick patio is a gorgeous outdoor living installment that provides you and your family with a sturdy medium for tables, chairs, or other decorations. Brick gives you the ability to customize your hardscape pattern so it’s exactly to your liking and unique to your home.
If you want your patio to be secluded or you want to separate it from the rest of your outdoor area, you can install a knee-high wall around the patio space. This hardscape addition can be built of brick to match the floor of your outdoor patio while adding a sense of completeness to the space. The elegance of brick is often overlooked and has a lot of potential as a hardscape for your outdoor living area.
While finding the right hardscape can be hard, luckily for you there are several different mediums and designs that can benefit any home.
