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.

Why Winter is the Perfect Time for Hardscape

January 20, 2021

With the cold air and Winter season upon us, our organic landscaping slows down and makes the perfect opportunity for hardscape landscaping projects. Hardscapes are projects involving bricks, stone, cement, and construction of outdoor living spaces and walkways. Hardscaping involves heavy materials and heavy foot traffic and machinery around your grass, flowers, shrubs, trees, and waiting until winter helps minimize damage to the natural landscaping on your property. RSSY can help design, source, and execute your hardscape project without damaging your existing landscape. Call us today for details.

Hardscaping Ideas to Get Your Home Ready for the Fall

October 27, 2020
Celebrate slopes with terraces. Cooler fall weather makes terracing a much more comfortable enterprise. Building terraces into your hillside will transform a barren, steep slope into a beautiful showpiece.
 
Spruce up your seating areas. A big group of friends and family with your holiday cooking will cause an overflow into your outdoor space. Be prepared for this by expanding your outdoor seating areas with comfortable, flexible furniture.

Fabulous Fall Hardscaping Ideas

Enhance curb appeal. Impress your guests by re-paving your patios, driveways and walkways. Pavers can be matched to your existing landscape and their permeable nature is ideal in a climate where freezing and thawing is the norm. Don’t forget to install beautiful lighting elements that will illuminate your design and increase safety.
 
Add another patio. Does a part of your yard remain unused for most of the year? Perhaps it’s time to add a patio. Patio spaces can be as simple as a square of attractive pavers bedecked with chairs and a table. It’s also another great space to sip a cup of coffee, converse with a friend, or to watch the stars.

Cut and Irregular Flagstone for Your Patio

October 2, 2020

Rock Stone and Sand Yard (RSSY) stocks a large selection of Cut (Dimensional) and Irregular Flagstone. Flagstone is one of the best materials for patios primarily due to its narrow-packed joints that allow water to permeate instead of running off. Flagstone patios also have a very natural, organic look due to their shape and earthy shades of browns, reds, grays and blues. The most common types of flagstone used for paving patios are sandstone, slate and limestone. Please visit our website or stop by today for your next flagstone job. Experienced salespersons are waiting.
