Aggregate is a landscaping term that’s used to describe coarse to medium grain material. The most common types of aggregate that are used in landscaping include: crushed stone, stone dust, gravel, sand, and fill. Varying in material and stone size, each type can have its own purpose when it comes to your landscaping projects.

Take Advantage of Your Outdoor Space with Our Hardscape Supplies

July 26, 2021
Hello Northern Virginia homeowners, we are officially in the thick of summer, and many homeowners are getting their yards ready for some serious entertaining and late summer fun. Hardscaping lets you take advantage of your outdoor space with unique elements that can take your yard from average to awesome. Here are three hardscaping ideas you can use to upgrade your Northern VA property this summer:
 
Patios. If you’re looking for a simple but beautiful space for entertaining in your backyard, a patio might be the right idea for you. With patios, you can change the shape, layout, size, and placement of your hardscaping so it’s just right for your home. We have patio pavers and flagstone in many shapes and colors.
 
Outdoor kitchen. For some, a fancy grill is enough to satisfy the need for a major masonry installation like a gorgeous stone outdoor kitchen. But if you’re tired of going in and out of your house throughout the barbecue to wash your hands, get condiments, and check the oven for your baked mac n’ cheese, an outdoor kitchen is a great summer hardscape idea for you.
 
Fire pit. Just like the patio, the fire pit is a classic and popular hardscape design for the summer months. Fire pits aren’t just a great place to congregate with your family. They’re also the epitome of what summer is about: hanging out with friends and family around a fire, roasting marshmallows, and relaxing as the sun goes down.
 
Please call (703) 339-8095 or visit our website for many great ideas for your summer hardscape project.
