Whether it’s putting in a new walkway, retaining wall, patio, pergola or other hardscaping element, residents of Ancaster and surrounding areas trust the professional service of Green Collar Landscaping.
Hardscaping should go hand in hand with your landscaping so that all elements flow together for a cohesive look. That’s one of the reasons why it makes sense to get both services from the same team. But our work is more than just putting together beautiful designs – it is about functionality in every way.
Proper hardscaping takes into account factors such as water drainage and soil erosion. In some cases, it changes the foundation of your yard so that you can enjoy your beautiful landscaping while ensuring that your lawn doesn’t turn into a soggy mess after a heavy rain or snowfall.
At Green Collar, we have completed a wide range of hardscaping projects for our Ancaster clients. However there are common best practices that it is important to follow in all of them.
The first consideration is selecting a style. You may love both Zen and rustic gardens, but that doesn’t mean you’ll love them when they are combined. Certain elements will blend together better than others. Our designers will sit down with you to discuss your project. Let us know if there are any particular elements you adore, and let us show you how you can best incorporate them into your yard.
The second consideration is keeping your long-term goals in mind. Often, due to budget and other constraints, homeowners may choose to hardscape only a portion of their yard. If this is the case, it is still a good idea to think about what your long-term goals are so you don’t end up with a walkway where you intend on putting a pond someday.
Finally, you want to make sure that drainage is considered during all stages of your hardscaping project. Something as simple as a concrete slab patio can and will change the way water drains on your property. Our professional team will ensure that your hardscaping designing allows for proper drainage.
If you want your hardscaping project to be one that you can enjoy for years to come, it is always best to work with professionals. Our team will make sure your yard is properly leveled and prepared before we install any hardscaping elements.
Green collar landscaping is Ancaster’s number one choice for hardscaping projects for a number of reasons. We are consummate professionals with a strong work ethic and are highly focused on providing quality work and great customer service.
