With water rationing becoming the norm across much of the world and the high cost of professional grounds keeping increases, more businesses and landlords are turning to hardscapes as a way to save money, reduce water usage and bring exterior beauty to a landscape. Hardscaping also creates functional outdoor space through the use of walkways, patios and terraces. In areas that suffer climate shifts such as excessive rain or drought, hardscaping a yard also prevents erosion which can become a costly and messy situation if left unchecked.
Hardscaping a landscape consists of using inanimate objects such as stones, concrete and wood to create an aesthetically pleasing outdoor area that requires very little care to maintain. The home or exterior of the business looks good no matter what the season, because unlike a living yard, a hardscape does not die and is not at the mercy of the seasons. Fall, winter, spring or summer — a hardscape always looks good. In most situations, a hardscape also increases the value of the home or business because it remains unchanged year after year. Landlords and businesses enjoy hardscaping because it reduces the amount of dirt and grime tracked into houses, apartments and businesses. Hardscaping also makes residences and buildings more accessible to the handicap and elderly by creating a smooth, even surface to traverse across versus uneven soil or grass.
