If you are considering a landscaping project on your property, you will be talking to landscape professionals who will often use the words/terms Hardscapes and Softscapes. You may be puzzled by what the two terms mean and how they are different.
Hardscapes refers to those parts of the landscape that are permanent and which often times remain the same for many years. Hardscape examples would include: Retaining Walls, Sidewalks, Swimming Pools, Patios, Stairs, Driveways, Decks, Water Features, Outdoor Kitchens, and Fire Pits.
• There are many varied and different types of materials used in hardscapes including: Concrete, Bricks, Granit, Flagstones, Creed Bed Stones, Wood, Terrazzo, Slate, Plastics, and Blue Stones.
Softscapes refers to those parts of the landscape that are not permanent and are often in a state of flus. Think of it as soft features of your landscape that are ever changing, including: Flowers, Plants, Trees, Shrubs, Hedges, Vines, Turf, Bushes, and Mulch.
