Hardscapes in Carmel-By-The-Sea
At Whole Earth Landscape, we like to daydream about all the different outdoor rooms that can be achieved with the creative use of hardscaping materials. Sometimes we even envision projects that use hardscapes in unusual ways. Flagstone labyrinth, anyone?
We understand that hardscapes are what turn a wild back yard into a useable space, and we love finding new ways to incorporate the natural warmth of our materials into your dream projects. Just to get your imagination flowing, we’ve created this helpful list of some of the popular ways our clients employ hardscaping materials in their Carmel-By-The-Sea landscape plans.

What could be more enjoyable than spending quality time with your family and friends in the lovely landscape of your yard? Being surrounded by nature and the soothing sound of bubbling water will make anyone’s shoulders relax. Could you envision yourself enjoying one of these features?
- Paved areas: No matter whether you add a natural stone work pathway with solar lighting or a slate patio with ceramic tile accents, offering your guests a clear indication of where they should walk is helpful – and safer.
- Walls: Homes with hilly backyards often need the structure provided by a retaining wall, but that doesn’t mean it has to be functional with no thought toward design. Our hardscaping options can render important retaining walls, handy seating walls or other delineating structures just as beautiful as they are structural.
- Water features: Flowing water sooths the senses, and the design possibilities are endless. A small pond with bubbler rocks fits perfectly into a corner of your yard with a nice wooden bench nearby for dawdlers.
- Stairways: We ensure you and your guests can move smoothly and safely around your outdoor spaces with appropriately placed steps.
- Fences: You can decorate the borders of your property while adding privacy using any number of our available fencing materials. Love the look of black wrought iron? You’ve come to the right place.
- Decking: From multileveled surfaces to flowing, custom-shaped decks, we offer durable woods that can achieve your design vision.
- Pergolas: If your yard gets a lot of sun during the day, consider adding a wooden or metal pergola to offer some protection and create an outdoor room.
