What is hardscape
Hardscaping can include almost any type of decorative or practical structure in a landscape, from driveways to fences to benches. Hardscape is a critical part of landscape design, providing definition and a sense of organization to the natural areas and features.
Ideally, a well-designed landscape incorporates a balance between the two elements, hardscape and softscape. We’ve all seen properties—maybe in your own neighborhood—that have too much of one or the other. A front yard that’s heavy on the hardscape might have a circular paved driveway, kind of like a hotel. While some people—those who have or want lots of cars—love the idea and it used to be considered a swank design feature, it’s just too much paving and can look like a commercial property. All you need is a valet. Add landscaping services that mostly includes rocks and gravel, some architectural light posts, maybe a stone retaining wall, and it’s hardscape overload.
Conversely, too much softscape and the property looks like a jungle without any landscaping definition.
Hardscape elements can also define the use of a space, such as with a driveway, or it can lead visitors through different zones of softscaping, as with a gravel path that winds through a grassy area and into a secluded garden. There are so many ways to use hardscape elements to enhance your property:
