How Much do Retaining Walls Cost?
May 22, 2017

Landscaping is an integral part of the overall look of any property. Poorly tended grass can make the property look shabby, while an empty landscape can look drab, unappealing, or even unwelcoming. Tending to your yard is necessary to maintain a good appearance, but hardscaping can take your property to another level in terms of increasing your outdoor living space, adding enjoyment, and adding value to your home.

Hardscaping involves any non-living features, such as outdoor kitchens, decks, patios, etc. Some hardscaping features are more necessity, such as retaining walls and walkways, while other hardscaping features are more meant for pleasure, such as a custom BBQ pit or special seating area. When it comes to hardscaping, the possibilities are only as limited as the size of your property and your imagination!


Creating a custom hardscape project involves a certain amount of planning. You need to take account of important factors such as your space, budget, and any building codes that your borough or township has. Its always best to consult with a professional landscaping company who has the experience to know exactly how to turn your ideas into a project that will benefit you. Spring is a busy time of the year for those in the landscaping business, and the temperamental Pittsburgh weather can often hinder work schedules. To ensure your yard is looking it’s best for the summer, its important to plan your hardscaping project well in advance and have a clear understanding of the project timeline, from start to completion. Some questions to ask include:


  • Is payment due up front? If not, what percentage is required up front? Do they take payment plans?
  • Will someone be required to be on the property while work is being done?
  • What is the estimated timeframe to complete the project? How will inclement weather affect the project?
  • Are there any additional factors that can increase the estimate?
