When most people think about their outdoor living space, many focus simply on features such as flowers, grass, trees, and other “soft” elements. However, while often overlooked, hardscaping is one of the best ways to add style, function, and value to your home this summer.
Hardscaping consists of the permanent, man-made elements of a landscape. From patios to fire pits, these features are primarily used to create livable, entertaining space within your outdoor property, and should be among the first things considered when designing your landscape. Vital to any good landscape, hardscaping sets the foundation for the rest of your yard.
When you incorporate hardscaping features into your outdoor living space, be sure to start with these large elements first, and then layer in any additional softscaping like trees, flowers, and other plants once installed. Your landscape should revolve around your hardscaping, with trees, flowers, and other plants acting as accents.
