We define hardscapes, or the “backbone” of the landscape, as anything that is not living. For example: retaining walls, stone outcroppings, paving surfaces, and structures.
By using aesthetic and functional guidelines, these elements define spaces and set the parameters for the plants, mulch, and finish details to follow. If done correctly, everything that follows in the installation process will be that much improved with a good hardscape design.
When selecting and laying out the hardscape elements, our designers take into consideration elements such as traffic flow, texture, color, form, and more.
