What Houzz contributors are saying:
What to consider The most important factors to think about when selecting hardscaping elements, says Lee, include: Colour: Which tones matches your home’s style and colours? Size and shape: Large-format pavers, standard-size bricks and decking boards will all create different looks outdoors. Maintenance: Timber decking will require regular maintenance unless it’s left to grey off. Stone pavers will need to be sealed.Drainage: Consider where surface water will go. Is there suitable drainage on the site to collect the water or do you need to include permeable surfaces?Cost: Don’t just factor in the cost of the materials; consider installation and maintenance too.
