When it comes to landscaping, there are multiple elements to consider.
Softscaping is the part that most homeowners think of when it comes to landscaping the exterior of their homes. Softscaping encompasses all of the living parts of your yard, such as grass, plants, flowers, and shrubs. But, this is only part of your landscaping elements. Hardscape construction uses stonework, concrete, and masonry to build the structures that give your softscaping organization and purpose. Hardscaping is often an afterthought for many homeowners, but it should always be an important part of your landscaping plan as form follows function.
