Many people who hear the word “hardscape” picture boring gray concrete. It is a word that does not excite creativity for most, but it should! Hardscape can be created that is as diverse and colorful as all your other landscape features, and the results are limited only by your imagination.
In order to understand the multitude of options you have for hardscape in your yard, you must first understand what it is. Hardscape is essentially a collective term used to identify anything that is not planted or building. However, most people use it to mean anything such as walkways, patios, and walls that are not part of your overall planting design. Some people also include things like borders around beds, steps, and even water features as part of your hardscape.
This flexible definition opens up a wide array of possibilities for the landscape designer. With creative planning and professional installation, your hardscape features can be just as eye-catching as your plantings and may offer you far more in the way of utility than most of your yard features.
Hardscape can be categorized into several groups of features.
