When choosing the landscaping of pathways, walkways or steps on their property, homeowners have a number of options to choose from. Mulch and gravel are typically an ideal choice for simple, casual and economical stairs and walkways. However, your landscape can be somewhat damaged when the snow begins to fall. Shoveling snow from a gravel or mulch surface can be a true hassle and will more often than not prove to cause some harm and damage to the surface. Here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes, we suggest you invest in a solution that is far more practical and permanent since you will need to rely upon these surfaces for years and years to come.

Stone steps and walkways wide and firm in design, often work best for high or low rises leading to your home entrance and provide a very stable and safe walking surface. With stone you can spread all the salt or ice melt you need without ever worrying about decay or corrosion occurring. Further, when it comes time to scrape away snow or ice from steps or walkways made of stone your task is sure to be much quicker and easier.
