We offer the best hardscaping and patio building services in Northern Colorado
If you’re like many of our clients, then you may be asking yourself, “What is the difference between hardscaping and landscaping?” The primary difference is easy to understand: hardscaping refers to non-living design elements on your property, while landscaping primarily involves living organisms. Certain elements of your landscape will change according to the season, but your hardscape will stay unphased by any changes in the environment.
At Advanced Landscaping & Sprinkler, we offer the best landscaping services in Northern Colorado, and that includes hardscaping and patios. If you are looking to build a concrete feature into your landscape design, a new gazebo, grilling area or outdoor kitchen, or a patio outside your back door, we can work with you to make that happen. We have the experience and expertise in Northern Colorado to be able to anticipate future concerns and ensure that your feature, kitchen, gazebo or anything else you’d like to have in your outdoor landscape ages well, offers the perfect combination of function and beauty, and stands the test of time.
You may find yourself wondering why hardscape features would be helpful, but it can be helpful in a number of ways. For instance, a hardscape path is going to be easier to use and give better footing than simply walking through your grass or dirt. It is cleaner, too. A pergola offers not only intrinsic beauty, but it offers a place to enjoy a meal or company outside. An outdoor kitchen basically eliminates the 500 or so trips you have to make back into the house for various things while preparing that meal.. A water feature offers a beautiful place to look and also, the sound of flowing water is calming, so it has a restive effect as well. These are just a few of the reasons to consider hardscaping parts of your landscape as well as “softscaping” (or just regular landscaping): your grasses and trees and other items that are growing in your landscape.
Hardscaping may also reduce your water bill. You don’t need to water the areas that your outdoor kitchen or pergola sit, so that’s one more way to cut down on your water bill. You likewise don’t have to water paths, water features, retaining walls, or patios. Maintenance costs are getting lower and lower with everything you choose to hardscape.
Hardscaping can be particularly helpful in drought-blighted areas like Northern Colorado. The more areas of your property that you decide to hardscape, the fewer areas you will have to water. Xeriscaping can also help, and the experts at Advanced Landscaping & Sprinkler can also help guide you with that. Hardscaping your Northern Colorado landscape with pathways, walksways, water features, retaining walls, patios, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, pretty much anything you can dream up, means that you’ll be using less water and not only helping out your water bill, but also helping your local climate. The pros at Advanced Landscaping & Sprinkler are here to assist you with any landscaping services in Northern Colorado.
Hardscaping and patios are an essential element for many homes. If you’re just starting out with hardscaping and your landscape currently doesn’t have any, consider what you would like to have the most. Is it a patio outside your back door so that you aren’t immediately stepping on grass when you exit your home? Is it a walkway between two back doors that you want to build with pavers or stone tiles? It is a full outdoor kitchen that you can stock with everything you need to cook outside without having to run back into the kitchen? The possibilities are virtually endless. Perhaps you’d like to start with a pond or another water feature, a fountain, or a stream flowing through your landscape.
Hardscapes also add to curb appeal. Now, the words “curb appeal” can be somewhat misleading, as they can give the impression that the front of your home is the only part of your home that needs to be appealing when you put it on the market. First impressions are important, but you want your home to be impressive all the way through. While your landscape and decor will certainly boost your home’s curb appeal, a patio installation and impressive hardscape features in the backyard will make your home truly memorable.
Whatever you would like to do, the professionals at Advanced Landscaping & Sprinkler can work with you to make it happen. We hope to hear from you soon.
