Creating enjoyable outdoor spaces is one of Action Landscape’s areas of expertise.  Part of enjoying outdoor spaces is having comfortable areas to gather.  The integration of hardscapes such as retaining walls, patios, stairs, sitting walls, firepits, and walkways in landscape design enhances the usability, safety, and aesthetic appeal of outdoor spaces, making them inviting areas for socialization and relaxation.

  • Patios:
    • Patios are designated areas for outdoor seating and socializing. They provide a solid and level surface for furniture, making them essential for creating a comfortable gathering space. Patios can be constructed using various materials such as concrete, pavers, or natural stone.  Action can also cover over existing concrete patios if certain criteria are met.
  • Stairs:
    • In landscapes with elevation changes, stairs play a crucial role in connecting different levels smoothly and safely. They enhance accessibility, allowing people to navigate the terrain seamlessly.
  • Sitting Walls:
    • Sitting walls serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. They provide additional seating options and can act as retaining structures, holding back soil on a slope. These walls contribute to the overall design while maximizing the usable space in a landscape.
  • Firepits:
    • Firepits are not only sources of warmth but also focal points for social gatherings. They create a cozy ambiance and extend the usability of outdoor spaces into the cooler seasons. Incorporating a firepit into the landscape design can transform an area into a welcoming gathering spot.
  • Walkways:
    • Well-designed walkways contribute to the overall accessibility and flow of outdoor spaces. They guide people through the landscape, connecting different areas and ensuring that navigating the environment is both safe and enjoyable.
  • Retaining Walls:
    • When dealing with sloped terrain, retaining walls become essential. They not only prevent soil erosion but also create level areas for various outdoor activities. Retaining walls can be aesthetically pleasing, blending seamlessly with the overall design of the landscape.

Through the strategic use of retaining walls and other features, Action can transform what might initially appear as challenging or unusable terrain into a beautiful and functional space. Whether this space is an additional parking or an inviting area for socialization and relaxation, we can create it.

Another aspect of landscape development that tremendously enhances the hardscapes mentioned herein is landscape lighting.  Strategically placed, landscape lighting can provide safety as well as a dynamic visual experience, enhancing the beauty of your outdoor spaces.
