When it’s time to upgrade an existing walkway or install an entirely new one in your Chestnut Hill, MA, landscape, you’ll be asked about your thoughts on edging. Edging provides a solid barrier between the main pavers of your walkway and your plant beds or lawn.

Consider these materials as you explore edging ideas.
Even if your Sudbury, MA, backyard is small, you can have a fabulous outdoor kitchen. You may need to skip some of the extras, but small kitchens can be both functional and stylish.

When landscaping an entire property in Newton, MA, walkways don’t always get the attention they deserve from homeowners. After all, when there are patios, pools, and front entrances to design and construct, many homeowners neglect to consider how these different parts of their landscape will be connected.

Experts in front yard landscaping remind us that walkways serve a distinct purpose and can set the tone of a property, in terms of their appearance and the type of materials used.

The functional nature of these walls at times lessens the focus on their ability to also be an aesthetically pleasing part of the design. The material and surface finish used are important decisions that affect the design and so is the shape. Here’s how to decide on whether you should opt for a curved or straight retaining wall.
