Patios & Hardscapes
Hardscape refers to hard landscape materials used in structures that provide landscape design. This can include retaining walls, paved areas, driveways or any other landscape feature made up of hard-wearing materials such as concrete, masonry, stone etc. as opposed to the horticultural elements of a landscape.
In urban environments, hardscapes can include massive features such as paved roads. Most water features are also considered hardscapes because they require a barrier to prevent water from draining directly into the surrounding soil.
Hardscaping is not only a beautiful addition to your landscape but in some cases, it is a necessary feature. For instance, a stone pathway can compensate for large amounts of human traffic that would cause wear on grass or bare earth.
