When selecting landscaping that surrounds hardscaping, there are several elements to keep in mind while choosing plantings to be incorporated around Rockville, MD walkways and patios. Landscaping around walkways and patios must be practical as well as beautiful, and allow for ample walking and living space around walkways and patios. A solid landscaping plan around such hardscape features will only complement walkways and patios, as well as increase the quality of your outdoor living space.
Landscaping around Rockville, MD walkways and patios must be of proper size, so they don’t overrun walking or living space. Be sure you know how large mature plantings should grow; you don’t want to have to constantly prune or trim plantings around walkways and patios, as that can decrease the plantings’ natural beauty, as well as take time away from enjoying your patio in the first place. Avoid plantings that drop spiny or thorny parts that could hurt when stepped on. Strong-smelling plants around patios can overtake an outdoor space, as well as draw unwelcome insect guests. Plan on putting some distance between more fragrant planting and your walkways and patios; a background smell can be much more pleasant than one that saturates the air. Consider adding plants with a high level of visual interest that’s best seen up close as you stroll along walkways or relax on patios.

The retaining wall and paver patio was tastefully blended into the back of our house and the contours and seams were impeccable.... The field stone terrace garden plots were truly a work of art and science... Thanks again for such a beautiful job.

We are thrilled with our new stream and pond. We waited a long time, did a lot of research and talked to many landscapers about this work. Although we were expecting your work to be good, it turned out better than our expectations. Your attitude, as well as your crew's, was professional and upbeat...
