Expand Your Living Space with Kansas City Hardscaping

Searching for a Kansas City patio builder for your backyard hardscaping project? Many times, when you think about landscaping, you’re envisioning adding a grand tree to your front yard landscape, a flowering shrub that brings color and texture, or perennials and annuals that create seasonal color, change, and interest.

Those are the softscapes — the living elements that give your outdoors depth and texture, as well as a connection to nature that comes with the sounds, scents, and smells that stimulate your senses and create a soothing, scenic space.

We all love our softscapes, but adding hardscapes to your yard can bring structure and cohesion to your growing and changing plants. Hardscapes by definition are areas that aren’t made of living things. They are made with materials such as wood, stone, concrete, bricks, pavers, and everything in between to create the ultimate relaxation spaces.

Think You Could Use a Little Extra Space?

Well-planned, outdoor living rooms can feel like natural extensions of your home’s interior. Think of it as adding a room without the expense of having to build on to your actual home. And there are no confining walls involved, so your senses get a chance to play. Our local Kansas City hardscaping designers can expertly and carefully balance the way your outdoor living spaces interact and relate to the architecture of your home, connecting paths that lead you through different spaces. To do this, we talk to you about how you plan to use your yard and what kind of feelings you’re hoping to create in each of your outdoor rooms — whether it’s for play, entertainment, family get-togethers, seclusion, or even simple and quiet reflection.

And it all typically starts with a patio — the outdoor living foundation. Patios are pleasant places for entertaining, getting lost in a good book, and hanging out with family.

Hardscapes Add Privacy

If you’re looking for a little more opportunity to enjoy your backyard without the prying eyes of your neighbors, hardscaping can bring that element.

Stone walls add great textures and tones, while giving you some peace. A pergola can bring height and an open airiness. Add some floral vines and you have sweet-scented seclusion.

Direct Traffic in Your Yard with Walkways

Patios and hardscapes, like walkways, can not only add visual appeal, but they set the stage for entrances into your outdoor areas. Easy access encourages a smooth transition from one place to the next, and who doesn’t want their space to have a smooth flow?

Hardscapes define spaces and help direct traffic where you want it to go to avoid any cutting through your favorite flower beds, keeping traveling feet on pathways where they belong.

Kansas City Hardscaping & Patio FAQs

Paver patios can fluctuate in price up to 30% based on type of material selected, existing site conditions, and patio foundation chosen for construction. On average, most paver patios on a crushed rock base average $30 to $46 per square foot. A concrete or European base can be a bit more. High Prairie’s European bases average $40 to $46 per square foot, but structurally last decades longer than conventional patios.

General concrete patios range in price from $12-$16 per square foot when they’re poured on the necessary gravel base. In Kansas City, our clay soils shrink and swell significantly during freeze/thaw cycles, so don’t skimp on the base even if the concrete company “does it all the time”. Stamped or stained concrete can range from $16-$35 per square foot. Our professional trade partners we use for concrete work always use the proper base.

High Prairie has several experienced stone masons on staff who build beautiful hardscapes every day. We only use trade partners for finished concrete or some veneer work with our stone masons are booked out. 98% of our stonework is done by our internal team. 100% of our stonework is managed to pass quality standards by our team.

We recommend paver patios at High Prairie because they last longer and age more gracefully over time. Determining if they’re worth the investment is a personal decision for every family. If a family intends to stay in their home for a while or lives in a high-end area, yes, paver patios are worth it. That’s presuming they have the financial means to comfortably invest in the lasting beauty of a paver or stone patio.

Every hard surface requires maintenance. The structure of a well-built paver patio will not change much over time unless there is an unforeseen issue such as a sinkhole, spring, or other abnormal issue. Under normal conditions, you should plan to seal or reseal every 2-7 years, maintain the sand/joining material every 2-15 years, and surface clean as needed with soapy water. Nearby trees or plants with berries can stain any hard surface and may require special cleaners. Extremely damp or shady areas need sand and cleaning more often.
