Materials and structures other than the biological components of the landscape are known collectively as ‘hardscapes’. We can furnish and install many patterns of Flagstone and Bluestone as well as paver patios and walkways. Decorative stones and accent boulders are great to incorporate, especially to those who enjoy low maintenance landscapes! Besides being functional, dry creek beds and natural drains can really compliment your property, as well as adding aesthetic value to the site. Fences, Benches, Gazeebos, Arbors, and Cabanas are also considered hardscapes. We can guide you through material selection and quality construction of any of these exterior structures.
Also known as ‘Nightscapes’ Creative Landscapes, LLC can provide customized lighting plans that illuminate focal points like trees, pathways, and ponds, while highlighting the edges of the landscape. We can supply your home with custom LED lights that are durable as well as cost and energy efficient. Exterior lights can add a new level of elegance to your home or property in the evening. We will work with you to determine your needs and wants by specifying an outdoor lighting design that creates a low maintenance system, capable of being adjusted throughout the year. Seasonal Christmas lighting systems are available as well.
