Are you on the fence about spending money on hardscape landscaping? Hardscape design in Atlanta neighborhoods is on the rise and not just for custom homes. Homes in all neighborhoods can benefit from hardscaping. Here are 3 reasons to consider speaking with a landscaping contractor about adding hardscape materials to your home’s outdoor areas. |
Increase Value Hardscape areas like patios, retaining walls, steps, and other design elements can add value to your home. If you’re planning on selling your home, buyers are more likely to pay more and be more interested in homes that have beautifully designed outdoor areas.
Outdoor Living When the weather is nice, why be confined indoors? Hardscape elements such as fire pits, outdoor kitchens, patios, and seating areas make it easier to entertain and move around.
Create Privacy Do you live in a neighborhood where the houses aren’t spaced far apart? Developers don’t think about privacy when they are creating suburban neighborhoods and buyers don’t think too much about it either until after they’ve moved in. Hardscapes such as stone walls, fences, and enclosed-gazebos can add privacy while also adding value.
Protect Your Yard If you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on getting your grass in top condition, the last thing you want is your guests or delivery services to trample over all your hard work. Hardscape elements such as sidewalks can help direct traffic to your front door and discourage visitors from walking through your yard to get to your front door. If you have a home office that has a separate entrance, a sidewalk can help guide your visitors to your office and stop them from disturbing your family in the main area of the house. From sidewalks and stone walls to fire pits and outdoor kitchens, outdoor hardscape design runs that gamut. When you’re ready to hire a contractor, make sure he or she is experienced in all aspects of hardscape design in Atlanta.
