Stuck in a Winter Rut? Start Planning for Spring!

In all honesty, this winter season has been quite dull. It has rained more days than not, leaving most of us feeling soggy inside and out. The doldrums of a dreary winter can often be lifted by looking forward and planning for spring. The spring season is a season of anticipation and renewal. Here in Georgia, we are blessed with moderately warm spring seasons that bring forth beautiful flowering trees and plants, sunshine, and warmer temperatures that allow us to get outside.

One of the best ways to look forward to something is to plan for it. If you have been cooped up all winter and are looking for ideas of how to better spend time outdoors in your yard this year, now is the time to start planning. Hardscapes are excellent features that can transform your landscape into an oasis that you, your family, and your friends can enjoy for many months out of the year.

What are Hardscapes?

Hardscapes are not-living elements in landscaping that typically serve as focal features. Garden paths, walkways, fire pits, retaining walls, stone steps, and outdoor kitchens are some of the most popular hardscape ideas in North Georgia. Not only do these projects enhance your property’s aesthetics, but they create additional usable space that can increase the value of your home should you wish to sell in the future.

Designing a hardscape feature requires just a few things: a budget, space, and creativity. Once you have your budget set and the spot chosen for your outdoor project, the fun part begins. Looking through the idea gallery at Alliance Stone or on the Internet will provide you with many ideas for your hardscape project. You will want to choose materials that complement your home and existing landscape features that you already have.

At Alliance Stone, we sell only the very best in natural stone, pavers, stone veneers, and other landscaping materials. We procure our fieldstone, flagstone, boulders, pavers, modular block, drainage solutions, and other landscape materials from quality manufacturers and sell our products directly to our customers.
