WHY CONCRETE IS PERFECT FOR OUTDOORS?
It’s durable.

Compared to other materials, concrete is known to last longer and is more durable. It can endure most cases of extreme weather without sustaining cracks that can disturb the beauty of the landscape design. It’s also known to be quite resistant to the scrapping of outdoor furniture. Additionally, concrete doesn’t get weakened by mould, pests and moisture.

It’s versatile.

Concrete can be used for a variety of landscaping roles. This can make the landscaping process a little easier as there may be no need to switch from material to material. Concrete is also used in many other building projects such as bridges, tunnels, runways, dams. etc., so you can imagine how dependable it is if many people use it.

It comes in different types.

By using different proportions of the material used to make concrete, a variety of types can be used to suit a range of styles and purposes. This allows for an equally wide range of landscape designs to be possible. It also makes it possible to have unique and personalised landscape designs to suit the different tastes of homeowners.

This architecturally significant home is set on almost an acre of land on Mercer Island. The clients completed a major home remodel and engaged Allworth Landscape Architects and Terrain to complete an entire landscape remodel. Due to the scale of the project, plant material providers were contracted early on to custom grown material in large enough quantities for the project. Terrain worked closely with the general contractor, Allworth and other tradesmen to complete the project in phases over 8 months. Today the landscape is maturing well and provides the family a private park-like oasis minutes from downtown. SEE MORE >
