A Beautifully Balanced Landscape
You want the exterior of your home to be inviting, beautiful, and usable. And with the right design elements it can be.
At ProActive Landscaping, we know how mundane poorly planned landscapes can be, but we have found that well-planned exterior elements eliminate problem areas containing poor soil or light conditions and transforms them into the perfect yard. This is accomplished through hardscapes.
Why Your Yard Needs Hardscape
A balanced landscape contains both hardscape and softscape elements. The “hard” elements of your yard include paths, walls, natural stone edging, dry stack flower bed borders, gravel, or flagstone. The “soft” elements include herbs, ground cover, and perennials. You need a balance of both.
Too many softscape elements make your yard appear overgrown, like a jungle, while too many hardscape elements can look less inviting and more commercial. So, what kind of hardscape do you need?
Manufactured or Natural Hardscapes
We specialize in both natural and manufactured stone patios supported by a crushed gravel base and seamed with a crushed granite or polymeric sand. For load-bearing projects, cement and mortar may be required.
Manufactured stone is more symmetrical and practical for installing an even surface or a tightly fitting wall. It has longevity and beauty that works to compliment softscape elements.
Natural stone is more decorative and free form. It takes on less of an architectural feel to blend more with the landscape. Natural stone is typically more expensive, due to an increase in labor and preparation.
