Our Favorite Hardscape Features

Quality outdoor environments are comprised of numerous elements. At Creative Environments, part of what enables us to perform our magic, is hardscaping. If you aren’t familiar with the term, hardscaping is a technique that employs durable materials to designate and retain soil and water in creative ways to craft a desired landscape design. 
It’s how we make your property aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time.

Several of our favorite ways to use hardscaping techniques include:

Stone Patios

Form and material are two aspects that unite functionality and a design sense. A durable stone patio is an excellent way to customize your backyard space. Not to mention, it’s a low-maintenance element that provides the best setting for time spent with family and friends. 

Retaining Walls 
With so many more exciting options than just limestone walls, we love a series of retaining walls or even terraced gardens that employ natural beauty through the incorporation of large boulders and landscaping rocks combined with tiled walls. 

Pool and Water Features

Going beyond physical beauty into elements that bring joy to other senses, a landscaped water feature like a gently cascading waterfall or a light babbling brook along a path can induce a deep sense of wellbeing. 


Whether an outdoor pizza oven, a grill, a complete outdoor kitchen, or breathtaking fireplaces that your guests can gather around, we love a centerpiece made of fire. 

With decades of experience we can help you discover the right hardscape features to employ in your backyard environment to forge a beautiful and functional space that serves you and your needs flawlessly.
