When you are designing your patios, decks, walkways and driveways think for a minute about the type of hardscape material that you are going to use. Some materials that you can use which can be bought in a variety of colors are...

  • Decomposed Granite
  • Concrete
  • Pavers
  • Crushed Stone
  • Pebbles
  • Cobbles
  • Flagstone
  • Brick
  • Slate
  • Terra Cotta Tile
  • Exposed Aggregate

What ever material you decide to use, go with what works best for the style of your house and your needs. Consider what you will be using the space for. If you are going to use the space for play then using decomposed granite would work best as opposed to stones. Although having a stone pathway might look cute.
