What’s More Coastal Than a Crushed Shell Porch?
What’s More Coastal Than a Crushed Shell Porch?

Spring is almost upon us, and nature is coming alive — in the greening of trees with graceful Spanish moss, across vast, lush lawns, and throughout diverse coastal Carolina landscapes. You can integrate some of this local natural beauty into your Hagood home with crushed shells.

Unless you live on a boat at sea, there may be no better way to reside close to ocean elements than with a home rich with crushed-shell accents firmly woven directly into high-quality materials during your home’s construction.

When creating crushed-shell porches and driveways, our expert craftsmen use locally sourced shells from the Carolina coast, applying them in an even layer during the slab-pouring stage. After a final smoothing process, you’ve got a uniform shell-speckled surface that’s as unique as it is distinctive. Talk about embracing coastal living!


Bonus: Crushed shells porches are one of the many included features in a Hagood home!

You Select the Shell Designs

What other aspects of a home might you enhance with custom deep-sea accents? While driveways and porches are some of the most sought-after uses for crushed shells, many other areas work just as well. Imagine your great room’s built-in fireplace, delicately accented by crushed shells that perfectly complement your hardwood floors’ soft, natural tones. Take your landscaping to an enchanting level with a crushed-shell path of your own design. And if you’re getting a pool, what goes better with shimmering blue water than smooth shells from the nearby Atlantic embedded in the walkway around the pool?
