For some homeowners the ideal yard space includes a variety of plant life with a sprawling lawn that requires routine physical upkeep. For others, a modern, well-designed – and nearly maintenance-free – yard is where it’s at. For these individuals, hardscaping is the way to go.
Hardscaping focuses on the concept of inanimate, textured elements to create an inviting and functional outdoor living space. Using wood, composite materials and masonry products, hardscaping is a fast-growing trend in outdoor design.
Consider incorporating premium slabs to help craft the perfect backyard getaway. Barkman’s Bridgewood Concrete, for instance, blends the beauty of wood with the durability of concrete. These slabs feature a realistic wood texture created from actual wood planks – the difference being they will never rot, warp, splinter or fade. As such, they are ideal for pool decks and grand patios. And best of all, premium slabs will never need to be stained or sealed like wood, and they won’t crack like stamped concrete.
With premium slabs, you can enjoy the warm and inviting nature of wood in your landscape with virtually zero maintenance.
Impress visitors with the rustic elegance and striking colours characteristic to natural stone pavers. The unique balance of colours and tones in paving stones will add character to your driveway. Expocrete’s River Rock Collection provides a durable, yet beautifully formed, product that will stand the test of time. To top it all off, pavers are environmentally friendly and resistant to heat, moisture and heavy traffic.
Refined Retaining Walls
Retaining walls provide both aesthetic and structural benefits to one’s landscape. They can make for a functional and durable solution to unstable and sloped terrains and elevated gardens. Cindercrete Easystack is one such product that will allow you to customize your space to accommodate either a curved or solid wall. The ability to add a curve to your wall design will add more texture and beauty to your hardscaped environment. Furthermore, retaining walls come in a variety of colours, helping ensure you find the right look for your personal outdoor oasis.
