When planning your hardscaping designs, there are many factors to consider, such as the obvious ones of your specific environment, weather, available materials, location, budget, and more. These components are critical in giving you a framework of possibilities, but once you understand your limitations, you can let your imagination run wild. Today, we are going to discuss design elements to consider when planning hardscaping designs.
Design Elements to Consider When Planning Hardscaping Designs
Choose a Function
The first choice in the design process you need to make is the function of your outdoor space. Do you want to have an outdoor kitchen, a pool, a lounge area, a garden oasis, an exercise zone, a play space, or maybe a combination? Take the time to think critically about what would benefit you, your family, and your home the most. What function would you get the most use and enjoyment out of?
Pick a Theme
Now that you have a function, you can incorporate your theme. If you could transport yourself instantly, where do you want to go? You can do this in your backyard. Do you want a fairytale forest with a plethora of flowers? Maybe a vacation destination with water features and lounge chairs? A popular choice here in Hermosa Beach is a beach theme. Homeowners love to bring the beach right to their front door with that classic beach style, especially when they have a Hermosa Beach view already available.
Select Your Palette
It’s color time! While you will have limitations with your available palettes, you would be amazed at how you bring those colors in through stonework, plants, furniture, and other little touches. You just have to decide what color palette best suits your home, personality, and backyard function. Popular palettes in Hermosa Beach often feature vibrant splashes of color with a neutral background. Plus, if you are after that beach theme, you will likely want tranquil blues with a warm background tone. Whether you want bright colors or cool colors, a wide array of color palettes are available to suit your outdoor living space.
