Patios, walkways, pathways, retaining walls, water features and outdoor fireplaces serve as the "hard" elements that provide continuity and a harmonious union of landscaping elements. Landscaping offers an extensive selection of hardscape materials including natural stone, brick, concrete and other various elements. Hardscape such as water fountains and urns, retaining walls and walkways turn landscaping into architecture.
Many clients choose to incorporate the soothing sounds of moving water into their landscape. Pondless water features, a more recent trend, offer clients the look, feel and sounds of water without the maintenance and liability of a pond. The water falls into a gravel bed and is then recycled through a reservoir.
Elements of Charlotte landscaping services offer everything from simple walkways and patios to very elaborate terraced multi-level patio systems. Our Landscape designers can help you determine the correct walk flow for your walkway. Multi level patio spaces can add dimension and added interest by creating comfortable living spaces. We can also add more interest by adding additional hardscape features that mirror your outdoor lifestyle like water features, waterfalls, fire pits and outdoor kitchen spaces. With a broad range of materials available and a desire to create welcoming and functional spaces, Elements of Charlotte can design and build anything to enhance your natural outdoor living lifestyle at home!
Because Elements of Charlotte prefers the "natural" and environmentally-friendly approach to landscaping design and construction, we have incorporated many "green" practices in our landscaping services offering.
Water Conservation. We select plants and trees that do not require extensive amounts of water. We install rain sensors on irrigation systems. We repair and prepare existing irrigation systems to only water grass and plants...no sidewalks or driveways!
Mediterranean-inspired Landscaping. We really love this type of landscaping design and choice of plant life! Mediterranean landscape design features open courtyards, light-colored and textured landscaping like mosaic walls and gravel beds, and low-growing water-smart plants, hedges, topiary trees, olive, bay and lemon trees, succulents, lavender, palms, roses, grasses and native vines. This is a really pretty landscape visual and it is low maintenance!
Black and Amber Shades in Plant Choice. Choosing plants that use smaller amounts of water are a responsibility that so many of our customers take seriously. Black and amber color shades are very popular color choices in plants for all types of landscapes. These plants include varieties like Next Generation Flower Carpet roses (Scarlet) and Festival Burgundy cordyline.
Vertical Landscaping. Vertical landscaping is the practice of growing plants up from the ground instead of out. This is perfect if you have a small space to work with or an eyesore you want to cover up. A great choice for our urban landscaping and patio garden customers!
Smart Plants. We like to use smart plants in our landscaping designs because these plants have been bred to withstand pests, diseases and our harsher summers and winters. Some drought-smart plants include Succulents, Sedum, Sempervivum and Thyme! These elegant, unusual, fleshy and interesting plants run the gamut from plump and chubby, to slender and bizarre. The one trait they all have in common is their ability to store moisture for use in dry times.
We focus on landscaping design and build that incorporates techniques that are earth-friendly. Our customers enjoy the lower maintenance features, beautiful and unique plants and flowers, and the contributions to a healthier planet!
