5 Tips for Great Hardscaping in Bermuda and the Caribbean

In the Caribbean and Bermuda your outdoor rooms and spaces are used as much as the interior ones. That's why creating a peaceful, serene space to enjoy is so important. At Global Sales, we can provide a wide variety of hardscaping materials to bring your vision to life. We can help you plan and design your space, provide an estimate for how much material you will need and coordinate and consolidate your shipment efficiently to save you time and money on your shipment.

Get inspired by our Hardscape & Paver Photo Gallery and Modular Outdoor Rooms. Here are 5 Tips for Hardscaping to help get you started.

  • Consider what activities you would like to do in your outdoor space -- gathering together around a fire pit, enjoying drinks at your outdoor bar, grilling by the pool. Belgard offers pre-built modular units that work seamlessly with their hardscaping materials. 
  • When selecting your hardscaping materials consider the architecture of your home -- roof color, house and shutter colors, stonework. Your pavers should be a cohesive extension of the existing design. Check out our photo gallery for more ideas. 
  • When remodeling a pool area, we recommend Tremron's Retrofit Brick Paver Collection. These thin pavers can be placed on top of existing surfaces to create an updated look. 
  • To save money on shipping, order setting materials (like paver base and sand) and stones, pebbles and rock when you purchase your pavers. QUIKRETE offers a full selection in their HardScapes by QUIKRETE collection. We can help you estimate your material needs and consolidate the shipment. 
  • Connect the focal points of your outdoor space with pathways, patterns in your stonework and retaining walls with flower beds. Use curves and lines to mirror details like pool edges and landscape features. For more tips, visit Belgard's idea page

Abaco Tropical Hardwood Decking

Abaco™ is the perfect solution for exotic-looking wood decks thanks to its beauty, hardness and durability. Abaco decking naturally resists rot, decay and termites, and is highly resistant to splintering, twisting or cracking. Because Abaco decking is all-natural, it does not need to be chemically treated. And best of all, it’s environmentally friendly.

Abaco tropical hardwood has a fine texture and is dense, naturally strong, extremely durable, and will provide a highly desired exotic look for years to come. Abaco is kiln-dried for exterior use and has a superior fire rating when compared to redwood, cedar and pressure-treated lumber. The boards are reversible -- one side is smooth and the other is a European-style moulded surface.

 Visit our Decking page to download brochures and learn more about Abaco tropical decking.
