The concept of landscaping your property has been around for so long it can seem to homeowners that it is the only option available when it comes to beautifying your land. Just take a look at the abundance of landscaping companies available to you in the Renton area!
However, landscaping with plants, dirt, and water isn’t the only option. More and more homeowners are discovering hardscaping, or hard landscaping. Hardscaping, by itself or in conjunction with other landscaping, can really bring out the best features of your outdoor spaces. B&D Rockeries is here to take care of your hardscaping projects.
Hardscaping Services In Renton
Hardscaping (or hard landscaping) describes the use of any hard, natural materials in a design created for an outdoor space. Materials like wood, concrete, bricks, masonry, stone, pavers and natural rocks can form the basis for features like decks, pathways, walkways and retaining walls. When thought of in terms of utilizing outside spaces, it’s not hard to see how hardscaping features fit into your property. These elements can be as simple as a stacked wall, to an elegant outdoor kitchen area. Hardscaping can make your home stand out from the others!
Reliable Hardscaping with B&D Rockeries
Here at B&D Rockeries, we have spent the past 35 years building a reputation for dependable and reliable service in the Renton area and throughout the Pacific Northwest. Because of our many years of experience, our knowledgeable staff quickly recognizes the right equipment and materials for any job that comes our way. We follow a thoughtful and methodical process of working with our customers to realize their vision and ensure their satisfaction. Here’s how we do it:
1. A Hardscaping Inspection
This is the first step, in which we meet with you to discuss your vision for your property. We talk about how we can best turn your vision into a reality, and as we survey the property we look for those areas ideally suited to hardscaping features.
2. Planning a Hardscaping Project
After we visit your property and understand your vision for the project, it’s time for our design team to get to work. After considering all the variables – such as the style of the features, site preparation factors, any issues concerning drainage, and the focal points in the various features – the plan begins to take shape.
What about style? This is where the creative process really comes out and shines. If a homeowner gives us a simple phrase like “We want an Old English garden look,” we can zero in on those design features and materials that best capture this vision. We usually want to focus on creating the project with two or three natural materials. These items are not only functional and aesthetically pleasing, but will also be compatible with the home’s interior and exterior design.
3. Selecting Materials and Preparing Your Renton Site
One we have the approved plans in our hands, we prepare with you a list of materials for building the hardscaping features. After we collaborate on choosing materials, our team gets busy with a thoroughly thought-out site preparation process. We take into account such factors as the effects weather may have on the features, and make sure that any potential settling or sinking does not occur in the future. Of particular concern for us is making sure that we take into account all drainage issues so that no problems arise from the erection of walls. We want to eliminate any danger of water runoff into adjacent properties. After site preparation is complete, the hardscaping beings.
