The summer months can quickly escape us. Memorial Day rolls in with warmth and sunshine and before we know it Labor Day is greeting us with the promise of fall and a new school year. 
When you look back on the summer of 2014, will some of your favorite memories be at your home on your hardscape, by the grill? If your answer was no, then you might need to take a look at the state of your hardscape!  
This winter was rough on everyone and everything.  A few simple steps might help to improve your hardscape and make memories at home the best ones you make this summer.
What seems to be the issues you have with your hardscape? Are pavers uneven  Is there water pooling in certain areas? By examining the structure of the pavers, you can see where specific areas are more prone to water pooling and uneveness. Once you figure out where the water is coming from, how to drain it properly and what else may be causing the pooling of water - such as a friendly critter who is digging out the dirt beneath the stones - you may need to remove some or most of the base material which provides the bottom layer of structure then re-install it in 3" layers and compact it as you go. Your patio may also need lateral reinforcement.  A trained expert will be able to solve your problem efficiently.
