Newnan Landscape Supply Company Offers Hardscaping Tips

With cooler weather just ahead, now is the perfect time to start planning your next outdoors project. Hardscaping is a wonderful way to transform your property into a gorgeous environment.

What is hardscaping?

Hardscaping is simply the use of non-plant items in your landscaping. This can include, but is not limited to, rocks, driveways, walkways, pavers, patios and more. Thanks to our many years in the landscape supply business (and to the HGTV channel) we can now extend to you a few tips to keep in mind when planning your next project.

1. Make a plan: It is never a good idea to “wing it” when it comes to landscaping projects. That approach may work out on somethings, but when transforming your yard, a methodical approach should be used. You want to take in account
your entire property, even if you are only working on one area for now. If you can, draw out your existing landscape and also what you would like to see done. If you have a hard time designing or planning, seek the help of a professional.
2. As we pointed out last week, drainage is a HUGE deal with planning a landscaping project. Water flowing down your hardscaping can cause premature wear and tear and in some cases extensive damage. After investing your money,
time, and work, damage due to poor drainage is the last thing you want! So make sure, you take drainage issues into account.
3. Go natural: Plopping a couple of boulders randomly on your lawn does not ensure a good looking yard. A common mistake that we see homeowners make is that they simply place a boulder level on the ground. When in fact, these boulders should be partially buried in the ground so they look as if they are supposed to be
there, or naturally occurring.
