Team Up With Lotus Gardenscapes On Your Patio & Wall Projects 

Winter in Michigan means our lawns might be taking a break for the season, but our power tools are not! Idle hands can make for idle minds, so our production team at Lotus likes to take advantage of the colder months to focus on hardscaping projects. 

Contrary to popular belief, hardscaping is the perfect cold-season project. Our expert craftsman can bring the hardscape project of your dreams to come to life. If you’ve been thinking of adding a rustic pergola to enjoy in Spring or a sturdy retaining wall to level your terrain, the Lotus Team’s here to make it happen.  

What Is Hardscaping?

Most of us have a pretty good idea of what hardscaping is, but let me break it down for you. Simply put, hardscaping involves any non-plant-related projects for your home. Think patios, pergolas, walkways, and even artistic features. Hardscaping can provide added curb appeal and even property value. It can easily take your outdoor space from functional to optimal and who doesn’t want that?

Which Hardscaping Project is Right for You?

Choosing a hardscaping project for your home is an important decision and important decisions are often difficult to make, but you don’t have to do it alone. Come to Lotus if you need help choosing a hardscaping project for your outdoor space – our artisans and craftsman will help you narrow down your options. 

The most popular hardscaping projects we provide are: Patios

Patios are a great spot for entertainers and a good starting point when you’re looking for hardscaping in your space. Whether you are looking for a quaint cobbled stone patio or a multi-layered and expansive patio like our Corten Tiered Patio, the Lotus team specializes in curating crafted stonework that matches our client’s style and tastes. 

Retaining Walls

While retaining walls can serve an aesthetic purpose in the landscape, their common use is mostly for their anti-gravity functionality. Common problem areas in the landscape such as a steep hill or area with an elevation change, require a retaining wall to help bind the landscape structure together to prevent erosion. Our expert designers carefully survey your landscape to curate builds that not only provide a functional solution to common problems but also add an aesthetic feature to your property. 

Pathways or Walkways

Pathways and walkways are often forgotten about in gardens but they do an important job of linking different elements together to make a harmonious space. Standalone areas in your landscape such as a koi pond, a pool, or even a water feature, can be seamlessly tied into your space with a pathway. Each client is different and that’s what we love! If you’re looking for a timeless and traditional brick walkway or a sleek and modern concrete path, our team can help you discover an original look that will harmonize your space. 

Fire Pits

Are you the life of the party and an enthusiastic host? Then add a luxurious fire pit to your outdoor space. Fire pits act as a great gathering spot for friends and family. Add in some comfortable seating and it can quickly transform into the perfect spot to be all summer long. All our fire pits are custom-built — take a look at one of our custom-built fire pits to get you fired up this winter!

Pergolas & Trellises

Pergolas are a great way to relax outside without worrying about the sun beating down on you. These freestanding wooden structures, not only provide shade but also add an architectural element to your outdoor space. They can be accessorized with lighting, curtains, and even vining or trailing plants to create a lush and shaded environment. If a pergola is too large for your space, our designers can create free-standing and multi-purpose trellises. They’re great additions to pathways, and seating areas, and can even provide plant support for edible gardens. 

Additional Design Features

If your outdoor space already has the functionality that it needs, but it’s missing that artistic flair, our teams also specialize in creating one-of-a-kind design features. Such as water features, custom art and sculpture, mosaic inlays, and specialty carpentry. What’s more, is that these unique features can add property value as well as attract birds, butterflies, and other beneficial wildlife to your yard.
