What is Hardscaping?
Hardscaping refers to the non-living parts of a landscape design. For example, a stone wall or wood patio would classify as hardscape. In contrast, trees, foliage, bushes, and other live elements fall under landscape. Hardscaping is a critical part of any landscape design! Different hardscape can signify different things around the outside of your home. Your driveway is considered hardscape and signals where people should park. A stone path, considered hardscaping, can lead people to a zen garden in the back yard. We like to think of hardscaping as the elements that bring the landscape design together!
