What is a hardscape and what can it do for your home? Hardscapes are landscaping features that do not include plants; these can be patios, rock gardens, or any outdoor feature that is going to be populated by non-living features. At Imperial Landscaping, we have proudly established ourselves as the leading hardscape design experts and proudly service Plymouth, Northville, Novi, Farmington, South Lyon, and the surrounding areas.

Hardscapes are particularly useful in areas where there may not be enough rain to support a large garden or a large number of living plants. These hardscapes are also perfect for land that may have no other real purpose like the sides of hills and otherwise already rocky areas. Hardscape design is something that should not be left to amateurs.

There are a few different considerations that your hardscape design team will discuss with you prior to installing any feature. The first step to a great design is to decide what you want. Brick pavers, patio/stone pavers, retaining walls, walkways, boulders, rocks and more are all options when it comes to creating your hardscape. In order to start the process you will first decide what it is that you want to achieve; many hardscapes take the form of a patio where the homeowner can enjoy their time outside and can do so in a stable area that is not going to get muddy or nasty when it rains or when the weather shifts.

For those that are looking for a hardscape, but may not want a patio, you can also opt for ornamental rock gardens, walkways and paths, and boulders that are placed in a decorative manner around your outdoor space. Hardscapes are a wonderful way to add visual interest to your home and to your outdoor space without going the traditional garden route.

Rocks can come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, colors, and finishes, so you can truly customize your hardscape to fit your needs, the current style of your home, or even the feel of your favorite beach. Our hardscape designers will discuss with you things like proper drainage, proper installation, and what you as a homeowner can do to care for and prepare for your finished hardscapes.

These are a wonderful option for those that like outdoor interest and outdoor pieces, but may not want the upkeep that comes with living landscaping or a living garden. They are also perfect for those that may not live in a climate that facilitates the growth of certain plants.
