Add dimension to landscaping with hardscapes.

My own landscape architect, Diane Cagle, always incorporates creative use of hardscape materials into her landscape designs. She uses some simple treatments of concrete (i.e., rock salt, scoring, staining, textured and colored concrete) on some properties, and on others she chooses natural stone. If she wants a softer look that also protects trees that she wants to preserve, she might choose a dry-lay stone application. If she wants to hide a hard surface, she might call out the use of Grasspave and gravel pave, two other great solutions that offer a more authentic European look. Fortunately for inventive landscape architects like Diane, paving options are almost unlimited today.
