What is Hard Scaping?
It occurred to us that people in the industry throw about terms and assume everyone knows what we are talking about. As a company we are focused on helping, educating and equipping do-it-yourselfers when it comes to backyard projects. We know what it is like to have a vision of your project but need a bit of help or a comfort level in describing it to when you purchase materials. Lets start with the basic term of hardscape.
Hardscape refers to the paved areas and decorative elements like sidewalks, patios, walkways, fountains, outdoor kitchens, ponds, water features and firepits primarily. It refers to anything using hard materials such as pavers, rock, flagstone, retaining wall blocks, and boulders. The term excludes plants, shrubs, trees and bushes.
At GE Landscape Supply, we specialize in hardscape material! We have all the materials to create your hardscape vision. Pavers, flagstone, decorative rock, boulders and retaining wall blocks are a great start to building an area that will last through time.
Have a vision but need a plan? Bring a picture of the area that you want to hardscape and will design a complementary plan for you.

The "Dream Patio"
We encourage our customers to Dream It. Design It. Build It. and that is exactly what Sean Wilson is doing. Sean stopped by our materials sales office recently with an idea for the construction of his dream patio. There was only one problem, Sean had never built one. The patio he had in mind was close to 1,200 square feet and Sean wanted to make sure the project was constructed correctly. This is where GE Landscape Supply enters the story and Sean's recent visit. After some discussion a complimentary consultation was arranged with Brent Van Winkle, our Landscape Supply Sales Manager. Brent visited the project site to discuss installation tips and answer pricing questions. Since the initial appointment, Sean's project is off to a great start as he has been busy installing 9 pallets of Belgard Dublin Cobble Pavers and over 20 tons of Limestone Screenings. We can't wait to see the final product.
Look for an update on Sean's project in our next enewsletter.
