Hardscape & Structures

Hardscape Design Services

The landscape architects at Poynter specialize in the design of beautiful and functional spaces that often include hardscape elements. The right design will make a world of difference in a properties look, appeal, function and thusly, its value. Hardscape can highlight a properties beauty or create features where there were none. Choosing when to add a large fire place as a feature or a simple fire pit that blends with a view is what good design is all about. Creating functional, long lasting, and simply beautiful hardscape features is the tradition Poynter Landscape Architecture has established since 1992 and works diligently to carry on.

Choosing when to use each element of hardscape can become the art of creating a cohesive and functional space. All the nonliving materials used to create outdoor living spaces are utilized by Landscape Architects to create balance and harmony in outdoor living.

Hardscape designs utilize wide variations of materials in color, textures, depth, weight and structural integrity. When skillfully arranged together, create great outdoor gems, adding value to both your home and your enjoyment of the great outdoors in your own backyard.
