We at Garden Gate Nursery and Landscaping have been in the landscaping business since 1994 and have, in a very consistent manner, provided hundreds of customers across the lake country area and Watertown with exemplary hardscaping services. We know what it takes to create masonry that will be low-maintenance and long lasting.
Just as the foundation of any structure is planned and constructed with care, so also is the case in landscaping. Hardscaping is essentially the foundation of your landscape and holds all the other elements together in an effective and integral manner. Thus the installation and planning has to be actioned perfectly and with care.
The non-living elements in a landscape are all part of hardscaping and includes features such as- driveways, walkways and paths, patios and pergolas as well a retaining walls and steps that are created in the landscape. All these elements form a very solid framework on the outdoor spaces of your property and offer very unique structural opportunities too.
Experience and Expertise
We know from experience that hardscapes are the anchor of any landscaping plan and encompasses various design elements which add beauty to the appearance of your gardens and yards. It is true that plantings and vegetation add life to a landscape and many homeowners tend to focus on these aspects much more than they do on the hardscaping.
But the fact is that it is the stone and masonry elements that add balance and also ensure that your property will be low maintenance. In the long run, it is neither practical nor possible to spend large amounts of time and money on the maintenance and upkeep of a landscape that has only greenery on it.
In order to maintain equilibrium, we ensure that just the right ratio of hardscaping and softscaping is used in your garden and yard. You are also benefited as it provides:
Safety & Privacy- retaining walls and well as boundary walls provide safety and privacy. We ensure that they are engineered to perfection and that the best materials are used in their construction. This means that they last for years with the least amount of maintenance
Improved Topography- It is not always possible to find a property that is graded perfectly and it can be very difficult to create the right spaces for driveways and pathways. With the use of hardscaping, we can create levels in the hardscaping and also add retaining walls and concrete borders. All of this goes a long way in adding to the integrity of the landscape
