Put simply, hardscaping is a technique that utilizes durable materials to retain the surrounding soil or water to keep the desired landscape design. Use of hardscapes, as part of a landscape design, allow for more aesthetically pleasing designs that make the most of any space and make your home more enjoyable. No matter if you’re entertaining, relaxing, or enjoying the beautiful northern Michigan outdoors – hardscapes are behind the scenes making your home more functional and strikingly remarkable. To give you a better idea of what hardscaping entails, let’s explore some of the ways Drost has used hardscape techniques for our clients and ignite your imagination.
Arborist Representative, Tree Service
Mitch Emaus joined Team Drost in 2015, working with our Irrigation team before trying out a position with the Tree Service team that winter. He fell in love with the work–and the adrenaline rush that comes with it–and joined our Tree Service full time in 2016. After working as a climber and team leader, he transitioned into an Arborist Representative, working more closely with clients and coordinating with crews to complete projects in a safe and timely manner.
Outside of work, Mitch enjoys spending time with his family and exploring the great outdoors through hiking and, in the fall, hunting. He loves that Northern Michigan provides so many wonderful places to see, and he’s looking forward to discovering more beautiful places.
