Hardscape for your landscaping designs
A hardscape element can be the focal point or it can simply complement the look of a landscaped area. Whether it is functional, decorative, a focal point or a subtle addition, hardscape is always a worthwhile visual enhancement to your overall landscape design.
- Brick or stone patios and sidewalks
- Retaining walls to create boundaries
- Built-in Barbeques and Outdoor kitchens areas
- Fire Pits
The use of hardscapes for paths and walkways is good idea because they absorb large amounts of human foot traffic that would otherwise cause wear on bare earth or grass.
Most artificial ponds, streams or waterfalls are technically hardscapes because they require a structure for water retention otherwise the water drains into the surrounding soil.
Hardscapes can also include very large features, such as paved roads and parking lots.
The use of hardscapes in your landscaping design will create flow and connection between your outdoor living spaces offering a transition from planting areas to outdoor kitchen areas, patios and walkways. From a creative and construction perspective, hardscapes allows landscape architects and designers to build landscaping design elements that would otherwise be impossible due to sloping terrain and soil erosion.
