A successful landscape design lies not only in the garden or patio floor. In fact, it is the smooth integration of your client’s softscape and hardscape that will result in a stunning property. Fortunately, we offer the highest-quality hardscaping materials and plants with which to enhance any landscape and transform a simple backyard into a relaxing getaway or hotspot for barbecues and get-togethers. Here are just a few of the many supplies you can expect from EP Jansens.
Natural stone is not only elegant, but will give your client's landscape the personalized touch they’re looking for. We offer a varied selection of natural stone, from cool bluestone to granite, and each type can have a different visual effect on a landscape design. Flagstone, for example, has been used in hardscaping and construction for centuries, giving any landscape a warm timeworn feel. Granite is popular in modern hardscapes for its sleek appearance and the powerful monotone shades in which it can be found.
A client that chooses to invest in only one type of natural stone for their backyard will still reap plenty of variation in color and texture. The colors, patterns and textures of each stone will depend on where it has been mined or from which field they were collected. This means that no two stones are identical and can enhance the uniqueness of a patio or outdoor kitchen.
Homeowners that aren’t prepared to renovate their entire hardscape with natural stone should consider veneering certain concrete structures with our veneer stone. These thin sheets of stone can help to achieve the luxurious look of a natural stone patio at a fraction of the cost.
Regardless of how much work you put into a hardscape, you simply can’t ignore or replace the beauty of the plants, trees and grasses that naturally occur in your client’s backyard. Creating a hardscape that yields to the softscape and investing in a few showstopping plants will bring a sense of harmony and effortlessness to the landscape design.
We offer a comprehensive range of trees, shrubs, and flowers that have been hand-picked from all over the world and will help you create a garden that turns heads all year round. We are renowned for supplying the healthiest plants of the highest quality to landscape professionals and have colorful plant species on offer all year long.
Pavers and retaining walls
The main benefit of using manufactured pavers and wall units in a hardscape lies in their incredible versatility and strength. Many Unilock pavers, for example, are imbued with Ultima Concrete Technology, which grants them four times the strength of poured concrete. This makes them excellent candidates for driveways and other high-traffic areas.
Concrete products can be found in virtually any shade, size, shape or feel. Manufactured pavers can even be made to emulate the gentle shades and textures of natural stone, often with enhanced durability and greater cost-effectiveness.
