Hardscaping is a great place to start during the winter months. The professionals in landscape design here at Advanced Irrigation can install hardscaping items like retaining walls, outdoor fire pits, pergolas, lighting and more. But the key to their aesthetic appeal in wintertime is maintenance. It is important to keep them clear of snow and ice so that they can be a focal point throughout the non growing season.

When the plants go through their dormant stages in winter, it is a great idea to have a landscape design that has implemented some hardscaping. Eyes will be drawn less to the dormant trees and shrubbery and more to the beautiful hardscaping design on your property. There are so many things that you can do to enjoy your lawn and garden, even while they are covered by snow and ice.

The key to landscape design in winter is how well it was installed. A winter surviving landscape design will need a good solid base and options for drainage. Snow and ice accumulate, mass, ultimately melting. The melt should not pool or sit on the surface of your hardscaping only to refreeze. A landscape design installed via hardscaping professionals should be set up adequately to allow for this.
