Hardscape refers to the part of your yard that is not growing–things like walkways, patios, walls, and fire and water features. While your lush greenery is the centerpiece of your beautiful landscape, hardscape is the hardworking background player that keeps it all in shape. Neglecting to consider hardscape maintenance leads to major, expensive problems in your yard. Furthermore, hardscape can be beautiful if chosen and designed correctly, adding an element to your landscape that makes it stand out from the traditional yard.
Choosing the right hardscape begins with a functional and workable design. Not every hardscape option is appropriate for every application. While you might want a water feature, for example, it is possible that some placements simply are not practical while other sites in your yard would be perfect for such an addition. It is very important that you have the support of a professional landscape designer when choosing your hardscape options. Here are a few ideas that can help you understand where hardscape works well, and how to avoid problems.
