Landscaping is formed by two main components, hardscaping, and softscaping. While hardscaping refers to the human-made features and materials used in landscape design, softscaping compiles all the horticultural, living elements of the outdoors.

When it comes to hardscape, there's a lot that can be done on your yard. For example:

  • Stone walls, interlocking concrete walls, boulder walls and quarry stone walls
  • Water features with streams, falls and ponds
  • Concrete Patios, paver patios and natural stone patios
  • Stone walkways, steps, stair cases and stoops
  • Excavation including grading and drainage systems
  • Driveway installation including parking and storage areas

Softscape entails all the plants, trees, shrubs and flowers that allow us to create a beautiful yard, as well as the care that needs to go into the soil and the plants, so they grow.

Ideally, for a landscape design to be truly exceptional, hardscaping and softscaping need to be balanced. Too much concrete work and it won't have the liveliness of an outside area. Too much softscaping will look more like a jungle than a backyard.
