3 Ways Hardscaping Can Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space

When you think about adding new features to your outdoor living space, you might be focused solely on generic landscape changes. Whether this means adding new flowers or getting someone to perform tree maintenance, these changes are typical and standard. So, to change things up, consider adding or updating hardscaping features to enhance your property. Not sure what hardscaping is? Hardscaping is the non-living part of your landscape and trust us, it is just as important as the living component of your yard. Here are some ways hardscaping features can completely transform and enhance your outdoor space.

If you enjoy hosting events or parties and notice that your home is getting a little crowded, hardscaping is a great solution to your problem. Additions like a patio or a deck provide you with space to entertain and relax outdoors, while simultaneously extending your living space. Plus, with your new outdoor space, you can put anything you want outside to help entertain, such as an outdoor kitchen to cook or an entertainment system to listen to music or watch television on.

One of the main perks of hardscaping is that it creates less maintenance for you to worry about. Living landscape features, such as plants and trees, require watering and constant maintenance to make sure they stay alive, are healthy and flourishing. Hardscaping takes up space that certain landscape features normally would have, thus making there be less for you to maintain. Features like patios and paths rarely need maintenance, so you will be significantly decreasing the number of things on your seasonal to-do list.

You also cannot ignore the fact that hardscaping adds tremendous value to your home. Whatever money you spend on adding hardscaping features can be seen as a home owner investment. Hardscaping features will be a big selling point when you try and sell your home, meaning that the money you spent you will certainly see a return on.

Should I have my gutters cleaned before Winter?

If you have noticed your gutters are clogged with debris, now may be the best time to have them cleaned! Your gutters serve the purpose of directing water away from your home so that leaks and rot damage do not happen to your roof and foundation. When the gutters become clogged water can pour over the sides or debris can freeze causing cracks to form.

To protect your investment and maintain the integrity of your gutters, a yearly cleaning before the temperatures drop is essential.

If you choose to clean your gutters on your own remember to have someone spot you while on a ladder and never clean them alone!

If you cannot safely clean your gutters on your own, please call Hometown Landscape & Lawn, Inc to schedule a complimentary consultation and quote!
