A few well-implemented hardscape ideas can go a long way in making your backyard the type of place you’ll want to spend more time in those beautiful St. Charles area summers.

If you have a beautiful backyard that you are looking to enjoy for years to come, hardscapes can enhance the backyard environment. Hardscapes refer to the man made portion of your outdoor living area, usually anything that is brick, paver or stone.

Some Hardscape Ideas to Enhance Your Backyard:

Paver walkways – Do you have a favorite pond, garden, tree or other place you enjoy spending your time in your yard? A paver walkway can be a beautiful and useful addition to your yard, and add an interesting design element, enhancing the look when done right. Belgard and Unilock provide a great selection of paver stones in all colors, shapes and sizes, making sure you’ll find the styles that are right for your home.

An elaborate design to your patio – Patios offer a beautiful, functional place to spend the time in the warmer weather. But you can get creative in the layout of pavers or stone as it’s built. An elaborate design can make your patio more visually appealing, and a place you and your family will be sure to love.

A retaining wall – Sometimes a retaining wall is functional, and sometimes it may just be aesthetically pleasing. It can give your landscaping a raised feel, adding a visually appealing look to your yard that you’ll be sure to love.

Consider Turfstone – Belgard makes a turfstone paver that allows the natural look of the grass to show through. Rainwater can easily seep through, and it creates a highly unique and natural look.

Patio enhancements – The more functional your patio, the more desirable it will be as a place to spend your time. Built in fire pits and outdoor kitchens can keep you outdoors in your St. Charles area home.
