Transform Your Outdoor Living Space with Hardscaping from a St. Louis Hardscape Contractor
Hardscaping refers to walls, pathways, structures, and outdoor living spaces built using “hard” materials like concrete, brick, stone, and pavers. Much like landscaping uses plants, shrubbery, and flowers to accent your outdoor space, a hardscape can add tremendous curb appeal to your St. Louis home.
Some examples of hardscapes include:
Concrete, or flatwork, such as driveways, sidewalks, and patios
Stamped concrete patios
A well-designed hardscape can transform your outdoor living space from ordinary to spectacular. When you make Barker & Son – Design/Construction your St. Louis hardscape contractor, we can take your mundane backyard and turn it into a beautifully hardscaped outdoor living space.
Concrete & Flatwork – The Basic Hardscape Foundation
Many hardscaping projects begin with concrete and flatwork. Your driveway and sidewalk are made up of a mixture of Portland cement, an aggregate, and water. Certain types of applications call for a higher strength mixture of concrete, where additives are mixed in to produce a “harder” product. At Barker & Son – Design/Construction, we pour all our own concrete patios, steps, sidewalks, and driveways. You can rest easy knowing that your concrete or flatwork project is will be handled our knowledgeable concrete contractors, not some hired hands.
Stamped Concrete – The Art of Concrete Hardscaping
A stamped concrete patio or sidewalk is truly a work of art. With expertly designed stamped concrete, a typical piece of flatwork becomes a beautiful piece of artwork.
Stamping concrete takes a lot of experience, and a lot of effort. You only get once chance to do it right. Otherwise, your mistakes are permanently etched in concrete.
