What is Hardscaping?
Homeowners have been working with landscaping companies for decades to improve the look and function of their yards, but there are several terms and techniques that people use to describe the process.
Hardscaping is the addition of hard landscaping features and elements, or man-made structures that can be used to increase the functionality of the space. Rather than plants, shrubs, or grass (which would be considered traditional landscaping elements), hardscaping elements include walkways or sidewalks made with stone, brick, or pavers; patios; retaining walls; and fountains. These features, in addition to natural landscaping elements can be used to design a yard that has a cohesive feel and easy flow from one element to the next.
The landscaping professionals at ZJ’s Estate Maintenance are passionate about creating outdoor spaces that homeowners can truly love, a space where they can relax and spend time in nature. We specialize in the following hardscape projects for your outdoor living spaces:
Immediately enhancing the appearance and usability of your backyard, a concrete or paver patio offers an outdoor living space where your family and guests can enjoy making memories together.
Walkways and Sidewalks
With a variety of colors, textures, patterns and stains available, you’ll never have to settle for bland walking areas. Experts in paver installation, we create yours to be a unique enhancement to your home’s exterior, while adding that personal touch that every outdoor living space is begging for.
A driveway is much more than a ground-level slab of concrete: it provides safe, clean, and convenient access to your garage and home; gives your kids a secure place to play and ride their bikes; allows your guests a convenient area to park; and adds beauty and value to your home.
A great option to prevent soil erosion, retaining walls can also be installed to create dimension in your yard as well as for flower beds or seating areas. Our team has the skill and equipment needed to complete this project safely and efficiently.
Outdoor Living Spaces
Featuring decorative options such as stamping, engraving, and staining, we create hardscaping components that enhance and beautify your home’s outdoor areas, including outdoor kitchens, fire pits, fireplaces, fountains, and seating areas.

Experience the Benefits That Hardscaping Can Provide
You may have grown up with a yard that was entirely grass, and possibly a small porch or patio off the front and back doors. But today, homeowners are beginning to expect more from their yards. Here are some benefits of including hardscaping elements in your landscape design.
A yard that includes patios or larger areas that are laid with tile, pavers, or rocks, there is far less vegetation to maintain. Grass, flowers, shrubs, and the mulch that often surrounds these elements, requires regular and ongoing maintenance, including pulling weeds, trimming branches, mowing, and watering. Other than keeping debris off the ground, there isn’t much maintenance when it comes to hardscaping.
Have you ever felt the need to stay off of someone’s perfectly manicured grass? A lush lawn can be pretty to look at, but it’s not always conducive to throwing a party. With a deck, patio area, fireplace, or outdoor kitchen, you can extend the entertainment space, making it easy for friends and family to lounge around in these additional seating areas. And the right landscape design will still incorporate grass and other vegetation to ensure the entire space is welcoming and comfortable.
Uses Less Water
More and more homeowners are looking for ways to increase the efficiency of their landscape. With fewer natural elements, there is less need for water to keep the vegetation healthy and thriving. Even though the Lancaster area does see a good amount of precipitation, what homeowner wouldn’t like to see their water bill go down?
Increases Property Value
Improving the outdoor space is a great way to add value to the entire home. When or if it comes time to sell your home, potential buyers will be pleased to know that they can simply move in and begin enjoying their landscape right away. Retaining walls, paver walkways, firepits, and other elements are desirable features for buyers and some are willing to pay extra for these homes.
