Getting educated about masonry materials is key to hardscape design success says splendor landscaping design.

Splendor Landscape Design, a Long Island-based company specializing in landscape design, masonry, irrigation system installation and lawn& sod installation, advises that homeowners educate themselves about the various aspects of masonry material when planning landscaping projects in 2014.

When it comes to building a garden, the design and the choice of paving materials are critical decisions that could have long lasting effects. As most masonry installation are permanent and replacing them, unlike plants and other fixtures, can be a costly and time-consuming project that could necessitate larger changes to the landscape as a whole.

The masonry materials chosen do more than accentuate the landscape design; they can bear the general theme of your outdoor space. Deciding on the materials to be used can be exciting but with different choices, it can be overwhelming especially if you are going the DIY route in terms of your gardening project. Most homeowners will be astounded with the number of materials available. They are basically grouped into two kinds – quarried stones and composite materials. From this starting point the decisions on form, color as well as other design characteristics are best made.

These multi-function contractors can work on the design with the homeowner, recommend materials to use that will fit within budgetary constraints while providing the longest useful life of the overall design.

The Splendor Design team believes that what happens in the design phase of the project will dictate not only the work that will be done but also is the foundation for the successful building of a design that will not only meet the homeowners desires but also add the very positive effect of increasing the value of the property as a whole.
