Landscaping has a major impact on your home’s curb appeal. A mix of well-manicured softscaping and hardscaping adds to the beauty and uniqueness of the home. New to hardscaping? Not to worry. The experts at Garrity Stone, Inc. will gladly share their expertise to help you find the right stone materials to incorporate into your home’s landscaping.

Hardscaping

What Is Hardscaping?

Well-designed landscaping incorporates both softscape and hardscape. Softscape refers to all of the living elements in landscaping, including flowers, trees, bushes, grasses, etc. Hardscape, on the other hand, refers to the non-living elements, including brick, stone, wood, etc. At Garrity Stone, we specialize in natural stone products that can be incorporated into your home’s landscape in a myriad of ways.

Hardscape Ideas

Natural stone brings a sense of natural beauty and sophistication to any landscape. Well-placed hardscaping elements have many uses, including:

  • Stone Retaining Walls Retaining walls serve double duty. They help tame a sloping yard, and they’re a stunning addition to any garden. We carry a variety of sizes, colors, and styles of wall stones on our four-acre lot. Whether you prefer a smooth, uniform look or a more rustic appeal, we can help you find the right stone for the job.  
  • Patios – Patios are highly desirable for potential buyers as they increase curb appeal and the functionality of the yard. Flagstone patios are popular because they are cost-effective, durable, and completely customizable. Our flagstone pavers come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes, giving you total creative freedom with the design of your patio.
  • Stone Walkways and Steps – For homeowners who want to make their lawn and garden more accessible, stone walkways and steps are a great option. We sell river rock and a variety of other aggregates for creating a loose stone walkway. Alternatively, stone slabs and steps are ideal for creating a solid walkway, garden terrace, or outdoor steps.
  • Boulders Boulders make a bold statement. Our boulders range in size from five pounds to two tons, and come in a variety of colors.
