What is Hardscaping?

Hardscaping is a form of landscaping which utilizes inanimate elements to create an aesthetic presence outdoors.  Hardscapes can be made out of wood, stone, brick, cement and more.

A hardscape can be as cohesive as a mosaic backyard, or as simple as a brick path through a rose garden.  Planters, pathways and porches are all part of hardscaping.

Hardscapes can expand your outdoor living space, keep your plants from damage (using paths and planters), correct a grade, provide shade, create pet-friendly areas and more.

When doing any landscaping project, one should always consider hardscaping as well as live greenery.  Both aspects naturally combine to create a cohesive and beautiful yard.
