Meet August’s Hardscape Hero, John Betts from Betts Masonry.
Hometown: Powhatan, Virginia
With nearly twenty years’ experience as a commercial bricklayer and seven installing concrete pavers, it’s no exaggeration when John Betts says he’s passionate about hardscapes.
From walkways and outdoor kitchens to driveways and retaining walls, John approaches each project as a new opportunity, always looking for the unique flare for each.
“I think one of the biggest rewards is seeing the homeowners reactions when their project is complete,” says John. “Knowing that I’ve made something that the homeowner is happy with and brings added value to their home is what Betts Masonry & Hardscapes, LLC. strives to accomplish.”
John’s Hardscape Planning Tips
According to John, the best time to plan a hardscape project is… anytime. If it is in the spring or summer it is a great way to kick off the warm weather with a nice new hardscape and if it is in the fall or winter it gives the homeowner ample time to research different styles and plans.
He reminds homeowners about the importance of considering how the space will create an outdoor living area that is beautiful as well as functional. And keep in mind that a hardscape project can be done seamlessly in stages to accommodate any budget.
