Imagine stepping outside to enjoy a nice evening out on your patio in Buffalo, Lancaster, East Amherst, or the surrounding areas in New York. By installing hardscaping elements in your yard, you can!

Hardscaping is defined as the manmade features in a yard, like patios, walls, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, and more. When you combine that with softscaping—the plants, flowers, shrubs, and other organic plant matter—in your yard, you get landscaping.

Hardscapes can not only improve your curb appeal, but they can also increase your property value. There are many reasons you should add hardscaping to your property.


Retaining & Seating Walls Help Prevent Erosion and Add Usable Space to Your Property

When retaining walls are installed, they can raise planting beds and help to prevent soil from eroding away in a rainstorm. They can also help level out hills on your property to create usable space where grass and other plants can begin to grow. By adding matching seating walls, you can create seating in your outdoor living space for friends and family to enjoy the outdoors at any time.


Decorative Driveways Boost Curb Appeal

Many driveways look generic because they’re made from plain concrete or pavement. With a decorative driveway that is made from concrete pavers or brick, your property can stand out among the others in your neighborhood. At Buffalo Lawn & Landscape, we can install a decorative driveway that matches the exterior of your home and enhances your overall curb appeal.


Outdoor Kitchens Create Extra Entertainment Space

By adding an outdoor kitchen to your property, you create a space that gives you a new place to cook while enjoying the outdoors and entertaining guests at the same time. The kitchen can be made with stacked stone, with stone that can match the rest of your property. Consider adding a seating wall as well so that your guests have a place to sit.


Custom Patios Increase Outdoor Area

When you hire a patio contractor for your property in and around Buffalo, NY, you can work with them to create a custom patio. Patios give you a great space for outdoor furniture like a table and chairs. When the weather is great, you have an area to go out and enjoy it while eating a meal or sitting with family members.

According to the National Association of Realtors, patios are one of the top 10 features that home buyers want.


 

Adding custom walkways outlines a clear path on your property for you and your guests to follow all the way to your door. When you put custom outdoor lighting on your property as well, it can help illuminate those walkways as well as other elements to both increase safety and deter invaders.
