For those that are not sure what hardscape is, it includes the heavier elements in designing your backyard like your patio, driveway, rocks, stones, stone benches, arbors, etc. It can also include paving stone installation and the installation of swimming pools and fountains.

• Visual levels

To give your backyard a dramatic look, create some levels there. You can add a pathway laced with flowers, bushes, etc to give it an aesthetic appeal. You can also convert a wall into a vertical garden. You could even use the top portion of the wall to hold your plants. You can use steps to reach this high wall and the area that surrounds the area can be a seating area with a nice stone bench or two.

• Living water flows

You might think that it would not be possible to add a water feature to your small backyard but it can be done. Doing this will add dimension to your yard and it will also make a soothing area to come to when you want to relax and unwind.

• Isolated islands

To make this happen you will need to choose a spot that is the center of your backyard. Using tiles to create an island make sure that it is big enough to accommodate a couple of chairs with a side table between them. Another type of hardscape would be a trellis or two behind the chairs so you could plant climbing roses or other climber plants, ivy, or creepers. You could also grow some plants. In a few months, you will have your own special island.
