An Illinois hardscape contractor will meet with you to discuss your ideas for outdoor living features. If you have a flower garden, you may want to add a gazebo to create a place to relax and enjoy the beauty of your garden.
For people that enjoy entertaining, a patio area with a barbeque or a full outdoor kitchen may be a feature they would like to add. The hardscape contractors around your region will then take your ideas and create a design that will be in scale with your lawn, your house and/or your garden.
A patio can be created with pavers for easy installation and immediate use. A concrete slab could also be poured for the patio area, but it would require a few days to cure, so it could not be immediately put to use.
Using pavers also allows the contractor to match the color to existing outdoor features or to the brick of your home, if there is any. Brick or concrete pavers come in a variety of colors and the contractor can create special designs to give your patio a unique look.
Hardscaping also includes making man made features that will work in conjunction with the home's landscape design. A hardscape contractor can design retaining walls for the flower beds around the house to help keep grass from growing into the beds. Retaining walls can also be used to feature plants or a tree that has been planted in the middle of a yard.
When you are ready to add features to your yard, contact a hardscape contractor to help you work out a design that complements your landscape and creates the outdoor space you want for relaxing or entertaining family and friends.
