Kimberly Nurseries designs many different types of paver and retaining wall solutions. The following details some of our options and explains the benefit of these hardscape solutions.
Paver installations and retaining walls or hardscapes, as some refer to it, is the backbone of a landscape project. With minor exception it does not change its form after the job’s completion. What you see is usually what you get – as opposed to the diversely fluid life span of the planted garden.
Hardscape construction certainly defines outdoor space in the same way that planting beautifies outdoor space. Successful construction design and implementation has the ability to delineate space in a way that brings continuity and flow between the house and outdoors. It fortifies the functionality of your outdoor living space, pulling the user out as a participant rather than a mere observer. Its results are usually very immediate and in most cases permanent. It allows landscape to become architecture.
Outdoor rooms are created by intermingling and manipulating floors, ceilings, walls, and doors. Different media for each of those elements are chosen and integrated to bring about contrasting garden experiences. Garden walls might be fencing, wooden screening, solid panels of brick and stone, short retaining walls, or taller, free-standing enclosure walls. Floors can be segments of suspended decking, all types of paving, or visually can even be horizontal planes of water. Ceilings are normally partial ceiling such as awning, arbors, or trellises, but will sometimes become a fully functional ceiling as with the summerhouse, pavilion, or pool house.
Kimberly Nurseries uses many specialty components of construction to bring life and diversity to the outdoor living space. There are many expressions of water features, night lighting, paver patio’s, retaining and seat walls, that enhance your outdoor space.
