Alternative Environments is your source for all of your Carroll County landscaping ideas! We are skilled in designing all types of landscapes, but we specialize in hardscapes. Hardscapes is the term used by landscapers to refer to all the non-growing aspects of a landscape. These can be important structural elements, like retaining walls, dry stream beds or curtain drains, and they can also be functional elements like walkways, patios or driveways. Even items used for decoration or entertaining purposes, like fountains, seating or play equipment, are considered hardscapes.
One important role of the professional landscaper is to ensure that the hardscape complements its surrounding landscape. At Alternative Environments, our design professionals have years of experience in creating hardscapes that enhance their properties. These include:
- Patios, walkways, and driveways in stone, brick, or concrete
- Retaining walls of stacked stone, block, brick, or timber
- Custom decks, pergolas, and arbors
- Water features such as fountains and ponds
- Drainage solutions like grading, swales, curtain drains, and dry stream
- Decorative edging
- Fire pits and outdoor fireplaces
Our years of experience ensure that the hardscapes we construct for you will be long lasting, capable of withstanding the occasional freezes and heavy rains of north Georgia. And our landscape experts will ensure that your Carroll County landscaping ideas harmonize with and improve your home’s landscaping.
