2022 was another year full of hardscaping innovation, seasonal secrets, and successful projects. As we look forward to 2023, we recap the past year while gearing up for the new year ahead.
This year we advised our clients on planning their spring patios and end-of-the-year projects that could give them an edge, non-traditional hardscape innovations such as gazebos, pergolas, or outdoor kitchens to maximize their outdoor spaces, and more traditional summer hardscaping or landscaping projects. As our name suggests, we’re more than hardscape installation and project design. We also work with patio and walkway restoration, allowing your paths to remain clear of moss, dirt, and grime that look bad but also could prove to be a safety hazard as moss can be quite slick in wet conditions. Whether you’re a new or returning client, we’re happy we could make a difference in 2022 and look forward to continuing our partnership through 2023.
Some of our most anticipated trends for 2023 include seamless tile, loose stone hardscaping, and the growing popularity of outdoor kitchens and dining spaces.
Seamless tile refers to creating the illusion of a single environment through a walk-out kitchen and into an outdoor patio. This creates an interrupted flow and with well placed folding doors, you can make your home seem twice its size in a space ideal for entertaining.
Pebbles and loose small rock as hardscaping and landscaping elements creates a zen-like environment reminiscent of a Japanese rock garden. Using these pebbles around fire pits and in drought-prone areas makes for a sustainable and safer environment. It’s also great if you’re planning to build an outdoor kitchen with dining areas! This trend is exactly as it sounds like, creating usable appliances and cooking space outside your home so you can enjoy great weather without having to be constantly entering and exiting your home.
Thank you to all of our clients who supported us through 2022. From the Wollaston Development team, we're fortunate for your business and excited for what the new year will bring for us. From new walkways to making your old patio look new in an easy yard transformation, we'll be there every step of the way.
