What Are Hardscapes?

Hardscapes refer to the non-living elements of a landscape design, such as walkways, patios, retaining walls, and other man-made features that are incorporated into the outdoor environment. Hardscaping materials may include concrete, brick, stone, pavers, or other durable materials. Hardscape designs can be used to create functional outdoor spaces, such as seating areas or cooking areas, as well as to enhance the aesthetic appeal of a landscape by adding structure, texture, and contrast to the natural environment. Overall, hardscapes provide a durable and practical foundation for outdoor living spaces that can withstand the elements and create a visually appealing outdoor environment.
