Hardscape Systems LLC has introduced a patent-pending modular system of EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam pieces that are used to quickly and easily create decorative landscaping seat wall structures that can be configured in a variety of ways. The Hardscape System proves that these structures do not have to be complicated, labor intensive and costly as when employing traditional construction methods such as actually pouring a base wall or cutting block.
Members of Vertical Artisans, an online decorative vertical training school led by Nathan Giffin, spent the week of World of Concrete 2015 in the Silver lot showing off the craft of carved concrete using Hardscape Systems. This modular system can be used in conjunction with carved concrete, cultured stone, natural stone and even stucco. This versatility is attractive to tradesman across the board as it allows them to use and apply what they already know instead for needing to learn something entirely new.
If a contractor plans on incorporating a cap for the seatwall, Hardscapes has the answer as well. This system incorporates a fully integrated top mounted, cast-in-place forming system that shares the same flexibility as the base of the wall. There is no complicated cutting of pieces to fit or pre-casting pieces offsite to use later. The top can be poured in place in the shape wanted with no difficult cutting, forming or aggravation. The efficiency of this system can change the way both landscape designers and contractors can provide for their clients.
