Design Aspects from A Clean Cut
There are two main elements in Landscape Design, Hardscapes & Softscapes. Hardscapes are any non living elements in your yard or landscape, primarily made up of pavers, brick, flagstone, concrete, etc. Softscapes refers to any living aspects of your landscape. Hardscapes can incorporate a simple path or patio to a full outdoor kitchen with firepit and water features. Retaining walls are also considered a Hardscapes feature. There are so many Hardscape elements and materials currently being used in our industry. At A Clean Cut, we primarily work with 3 types of Hardscape materials:
- River Rock
While these are the three most popular hardscape products we work with, we are happy to discuss your ideas and other products that you may have in mind for your project.
River Rock is known for its rounded smooth features and choices of colors. It is a wonderful eco-friendly alternative to a lot of landscaping materials. River Rock can be used for:
- Within Water Features or Around Pools & Fountains
- Walkways or Paths
- Borders Around or Through Gardens
- Alternative to Gravel for Driveways
- Outdoor Shower Floors
- Decorative Design Elements
- Beautiful Way to Deal with Drainage Projects or to Improve Drainage and/or Reduce Standing Water
River Rock can be a great alternative to mulch in some climates and/or around some plantings. You will want to discuss types of plants and sunlight if surrounding with river rock.
Flagstone is a term used for a variety of rock types that are cut or chiseled into flagstone pieces. Flagstone can be cut from sandstone, shale, limestone, granite, basalt, quartzite or marble, just to name a few. The sheer number of design colors and textures makes Flagstone a great material to serve multiple purposes throughout any landscaping project. Flagstone is usually cut into two popular uses:
- Patio Flagstone Pieces – are chiseled into 12″-18″ pieces and are a thicker cut usually used for floors, such as stepping stones, pathways or patios.
- Select Flagstone Pieces – are chiseled into 18″-36″ pieces which are thinner and usually used as standing up material, such as border walls.
When using Flagstone as a landscaping material, it is important to use a good base material such as sand, decomposed granite or mortar cement. Flagstone is a truly versatile design material that creates truly customizable high end looking designs.
Landscapes and landscape design are true art forms. Nowhere is this more evident that seeing a beautifully landscaped yard highlighted with beautifully handpicked Boulders. Landscape boulders are usually categorized as round or angular. The size or scope and the color of the boulders you choose is where the art of your boulders will play in with the other design features of your landscape. Here are several design options to consider using boulders for:
- Water features or in clusters around a water feature
- Strategically placed boulders for edges or up lighting as a focal point
- Boulder Gardens, where boulders are laid partly in the ground surrounded by moss or succulents, as a garden
- Surround boulders with contrasting river rock
- Boulders placed as stone steps or levels in gardens
- Walls or borders become works of art with the right boulders and warm color choices
- Fire pits come alive when light dances off the edges and shapes of boulders.
Be sure to work smarter, not harder when deciding on the placement of Boulders in your landscaping. Realizing that heavy machinery may have to go through newly placed sod or pathways to put a boulder in place, so plan accordingly when wanting to utilize this design element.
