HARDSCAPING

Hardscaping projects, such as fencing, retaining walls, walkways, outdoor lighting, and patios, can greatly enhance the appearance of a lawn.

Hardscaping, projects that exclude plants, are used to provide beauty or functionality to your overall landscaping project. Listed below are a small sample of hardscaping projects that Brazos Landworks can provide.

Fencing

Before selecting your fencing material, carefully consider the purpose of the fence:

  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Appearance
  • Safety

This will determine if you should select wood, metal, iron, or some other material for construction of your fence.

Retaining Walls

A non-slip flagstone walkway takes a visitor
from the street to the front door.

A yard that is uneven, or has a steep slope, often requires a retaining wall before executing a landscaping design. A retaining wall will keep soil, rocks, mulch or other materials from sliding out of place in these areas. It can also keep water away from structures in areas that are prone to flooding. In many instances, building a retaining wall is a matter of safety because it will keep soil from sliding into areas where people congregate. You can rely on Brazos Landworks to assess the situation and make recommendations based on the topography of your property.

Walkways

Create a dramatic look for the entrance to your home by installing a walk made of natural or manufactured materials that leads right up to your front door. There are several types of natural or manufactured materials that are appropriate for a beautiful walkway.

  • Flagstone - natural material
  • Sandstone - natural material
  • Quarry or river rock - natural material
  • Concrete - manufactured material
  • Clay bricks - manufactured material
  • Interlocking pavers - manufactured material

Outdoor Lighting

Placing accent lights in a flower bed highlights a garden at night.

A small lantern will bathe your plants and sidewalk with soft light after dark. It can also ensure the safety of your visitors as they navigate a dimly lit path, sidewalk or driveway after the sun disappears. If you have an object or landscaping centerpiece that you would like to accent, perhaps a beautiful tree or fountain, uplights would be appropriate. There are several types of outdoor lighting choices from which to select.

  • Spot lights
  • Backlights
  • Uplights
  • Accent lights
  • Hanging lights
  • Flood lights

Patios

A patio is the perfect way to take your living area outdoors. A patio can be constructed from stone, pavers, bricks, or wood. Add a seating area and a beautiful outdoor table to create the perfect outdoor dining area. The addition of outdoor furniture creates a lovely seating area in which to entertain guests or enjoy the outdoors.
