Hardscape Tips from the Experts

Coordinate Your Look

When selecting your hardscaping materials consider the architecture of your home -- roof color, house and shutter colors, stonework. Your pavers should be a cohesive extension of the existing design.

Suit Your Lifestyle

Consider what activities you would like to do in your outdoor space -- gathering together around a fire pit, enjoying drinks at your outdoor bar, grilling by the pool. Belgard offers pre-built modular units that work seamlessly with their hardscaping materials.

Highlight the Best Parts

Connect the focal points of your outdoor space with pathways, patterns in your stonework and retaining walls with flower beds. Use curves and lines to mirror details like pool edges and landscape features.

Order Everything a the Same Time

To save money on shipping, order setting materials (like paver base and sand) and stones, pebbles and rock when you purchase your pavers. QUIKRETE offers a full selection in their HardScapes by QUIKRETE collection. We can help you estimate your material needs and consolidate the shipment.

Hardscape Ideas and Trends

When it comes to hardscape materials, we offer a huge selection. Here are a few ideas to help get you started:

Blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living spaces with flooring to provide a seamless transition between spaces. Running the same flooring from indoors to the outside visually opens up indoor living spaces and adds a welcoming appeal to outside areas.

Beautiful travertine pavers, like the flooring in this game room and pool deck from the Natural Elegance Leonardo Collection, can be a great transitional product for customers who want to expand living areas and eliminate visual boundaries.


Give outdoor areas a clean, contemporary look and a more spacious appearance with large format porcelain tiles. Florida Tile's line of Thicker ultra-thick porcelain pavers are available in a variety of elegantly neutral colors, in sizes up to 24" x 24" with anti-slip surfaces that are suitable for use around a pool.


  
  
To create a more cozy aesthetic, use natural stone pavers in the design. Natural stone, such as granite, travertine, and marble, combine a range of beautiful, soft, neutral tones with unique shapes and textures to add a welcoming warmth and character to outdoor spaces.

The unique beauty and drama of natural stone is found in the rich colors of travertine and marble pavers from Paramount Stoneworks. Their Van Gogh pattern is a luxurious combination of grays and golds that adds sophistication to any hardscape installation.

Affordable and easy to install, concrete block lends itself beautifully to many hardscape applications, like this attractive retaining wall made from Belgard's Castlemanor ® blocks. Because they are man-made, concrete blocks are formed to fit together and are available in a wide range of shapes and colors.

 

When it comes to creating your outdoor living space, there are a lot of choices in design and materials. We can help.
