While your residential yard almost definitely has traditional landscaping elements, like beautiful shrubs and tall trees, you might not have much hardscaping throughout your yard. Hardscaping encompasses all hard surfaces and elements that you can include in your landscaping, like stone walkways, concrete paths, and rock walls. Natural stone hardscaping actually comes with many different benefits for the homeowner!
Boost Your Home Value
Whether you’re looking to put your home on the market soon or just want to increase the value of your property, natural stone hardscaping is a great way to get the job done. Homes with well-maintained yards typically go for 10% more than homes with plain or poorly maintained yards. Prospective homebuyers assume that a home with well-maintained landscaping is a home with well-maintained insides too, so use your natural stone hardscaping to your advantage.
Don’t Worry About Maintenance
Landscaping does require a bit of effort to keep looking nice throughout the year, but natural stone hardscaping couldn’t be simpler! Since the surfaces are hard and made from natural rocks, you don’t need to worry about fertilizing them, mowing them, or watering them. In order to keep them in good condition, it’s a good idea to hose them off or sweep them off whenever you do other yard work—however, that’s much simpler than landscaping.
Control Your Costs
Aside from actually adding value to your home, natural stone hardscaping is incredibly cost-effective. You might spend a bit installing the pathways, pavements, retaining walls, and other features throughout your yard, but unlike landscaping you won’t need to pay every season to have the job re-done. You will use less water keeping your landscaping looking great, save on the amount of lawn seed and yard work you need performed, and enjoy less yard expenses all around.
