Creative Hardscapes is a hardscaping company that makes outdoor living spaces in Ohio. Since you clicked on this post you obviously want a back yard living space to relax when you come home from work or to entertain friends or grandchildren. Well you are in luck my friend you just found the best hardscaper in Ohio.
What is Hardscaping? Hardscaping is basically stone landscaping if that makes sense, let me give an example. A landscaper looks at yard and says “Let’s put some bushes in their and make it look good,” but a hardscaper looks at the same lawn and says “let’s turn this into a wicked awesome pool”. See the difference? If you don’t here are some pictures.
Turning your yard into a hardscaping masterpiece has many advantages.
1. All your neighbors will be jealous of your new entertainment spot.
2. You will not have to mow as much grass which is good if you are not one of those people who mow their grass because it is the only thing them makes them happy.
3. You will not have to play phase 10 when people come over to your house.
4. And instead of going to bed when you get home from work you can grill a steak, smoke a ham, or take a dip in the pool.
I will tell you about the outdoor areas they build and try to explain each process with as many pictures as possible so you don’t get bored and leave. Please read on if you are still interested.

4. Step four is to add the plumbing to your pool. This step is applied in a way that will be easy for the homeowner to replace any parts that may leak or break.
5. The next step is to place a steel structure inside your pool and to add all the heating and gas. The reason for the steel structure you may ask? it is their for added strength and lasting durability. The structure is basically a criss crossing pattern of half inch steel bars that makes the structure of your pool.
6. The next step is an annoying one because you have to get the electric and stuff inspected to make sure your pool is compliant with the state and local laws.

Backyard Living Spaces
Basically a backyard living area is sometimes comprised of an outdoor kitchen maybe a fireplace but it mostly has furniture, it’s like an outside living room.
These backyard living spaces are nice if you have to entertain a lot of guests at a time because they can fill up a space really easily if the owner wants them to.
As with the others for anything to be built you need to get it approved by your HOA and it must comply with all the state and local laws for anything to be built.
