Hardscaping is the design element of a yard excluding plants and other living things. A yard’s hardscape may include paved or tiled walkways, fences, rocks and walls. The use of boulders, tiles, sculptures, walkways or bird baths can be used to create a beautiful sitting area, a place for entertaining guests, or an outdoor cooking space.
Using a variety of ‘hard’ materials, hardscaping changes the look of your yard and can create segregated areas for different purposes like lawns, vegetable gardens and outdoor living areas. Hardscaping uses materials such as a variety of stones, paving, tiles, boulders, concrete, wood and brick. The great thing about hardscaping is that the additions are all permanent elements that withstand the elements of the weather and don’t require maintenance like their softscape partners. With a design that includes both hardscape and softscape elements, it means only half of your yard requires TLC to keep it flourishing.
