  • The walkway – Instead of allowing your walkway to remain a lifeless stretch of concrete, consider widening the walkway and installing stepping stones onto a base of gravel for a charming and inviting look.
  • The driveway – One way to spruce up your driveway is to combine hardscaping with landscaping. How to do this? There are many wonderful innovations available in the world of decorative concrete, including concrete stamping pads. Employing these pads and  separating them with aisles of grass gives a rich look to your entry. Another option is to install semi-permeable pavers to give the driveway a bit more texture as well as fantastic visual interest.
  • The patio – Instead of keeping a traditional lawn that needs to be mowed every week, why not install a flagstone patio? They require little maintenance and provide a rustic quality for your front yard.
