Transforming your property into an elegant outdoor living space is possible with landscaping. But you will need more than just flowers, grass, or trees; vegetation in the yard, known as the softscape or soft landscaping, is just half of it. So what’s the other half? It’s called hardscaping, or hard landscaping.

Hardscaping and Its Practical Function

Besides beautifying outdoors, hardscaping is very important in making the most of the outdoors. Without it, there would be no fences, walkways, driveways, retaining walls, stepping stones, pool decks, frontal decks, water features, or gazebos. These elements should not only be beautiful, but very functional, too.

The Paver Power in Hardscaping

To make all these possible, a reliable material is necessary. Among the most common are concrete, bricks, stones, and wood. But amidst all these is the paver. The powerful paver is the best material for hardscaping.

Pavers are basically brick-like materials, only stronger and more sophisticated. They are available in myriads of specific types from natural stones (like flagstones and limestones) to the most common concrete pavers. Whatever your preference, we offer a wide variety of options.

Pavers come in many different colors, including Mega Arbel, Old World, Dublin Cobble, Holland Stone, Anchor Diamond, and more. They also come in different patterns, from the classic brick, to an out-of-this-world design.

Retaining walls can have more than just an aesthetic purpose in the landscape. Much of the time they are designed to restrain soil to an unnatural slope.
