Hardscaping is integral to every landscape we design & build in the Bay Area

In fact, it is one of the most important elements of any landscape design

Hardscaping brings unity to the house and its surrounding outdoor space and beauty to the overall aesthetic. It is often referred to as the backbone or skeleton of your gardens and exterior landscape. Some may even say it’s the icing on the cake.

  • Without hardscape design and elements, the gardens lack structure.
  • Without hardscaping, your outdoor space lacks focal points of stone which work in beautiful contrast to the soft, often vivid, elements of the flowers, plants, and lawn.
  • Without hardscaping, your outdoor space will also lack functionality with places to sit, play, walk, and dine.

Since your yards would not be complete without it, neither would we. In fact, Opulands is one of the Bay Area’s premier hardscaping contractors with a specialty in the use and application of interlocking pavers.

Hardscaping FAQs

Simply put, hardscaping is any non-living part of your landscape, including walkways, patios, pergolas, retaining walls, fire pits, decks, and stone.  Landscaping, on the other hand, refers to the softscape of plants and soil. 

It sure does. Hardscaping is a great way to increase the value of your home, and you can expect to get back between 20-80% of your costs if/when you sell your home. That’s not a 100%, but when you consider the enjoyment you’ve gained from your hardscaping, it’s a great investment.

To keep them looking their best, plan on cleaning and resealing pavers every 3-5 years.

Each spring use a coarse brush to clean them and either pull or kill weeds that may be cropping up in the cracks to prevent the pavers from moving. 

You can call a professional, or with the right solution and equipment you can do it yourself. Home Depot carries both the paver sealer and the pump sprayer you need. Be sure to clean the pavers well before sealing. Youtube has some video instructions. 

Besides adding contrast and beauty to your landscape, hardscaping makes your yard more functional by creating easy ways to access all parts of your yard with walkways, providing places to sit, eat and mingle, and even prevent erosion, to name a few of the benefits. 

The lifespan of hardscaping depends on the materials used and the quality of the installation. Properly installed and maintained hardscaping can last for many years, but it may need to be repaired or replaced over time due to wear and tear or exposure to the elements.

Hardscaping can be environmentally friendly by using materials that are sustainably sourced, permeable, or able to capture and filter stormwater runoff. Hardscaping can also be designed to support native plants and wildlife, and to reduce the need for watering and other resource-intensive landscaping practices.

Proper maintenance can help extend the lifespan of hardscaping. This can include cleaning surfaces regularly, sealing or protecting certain materials, repairing any damages or cracks, and removing weeds or plants that may grow in or around hardscaping structures and pavers. See “how do you seal pavers?” above. 

Hardscaping can be a DIY project for some people, but it can also be quite labor-intensive and require specialized skills and tools. Depending on the complexity of the project, it may be more cost-effective and efficient to hire a professional hardscaping contractor.
