Understanding the Differences Between Hardscape and Softscape When it comes to landscape design, the elements that are involved are softscape and hardscape which are the foundation of any landscape project. What are the differences between a hardscape from a softscape? Hardscape refers to the man-made features or materials used in the building of environment structures such as paths and walls. On the other hand, softscape pertains to the changing, fluid, and horticultural elements of a landscape such as plants and trees. Ideally, a balanced landscape should have a harmonious combination of hardscape and softscape elements. Having too much hardscape elements is not soothing and relaxing, whereas too much softscape makes your yard like a jungle. Soft elements such as flowers, shrubs, ground covers, and trees are some examples that make a softscape which are the growing or living components of a landscape. The hardscape elements of a landscape include the patios, pool surrounds, decks, walls, fences, arbors, gazebos, pergolas, stones, rocks, retaining walls, stairs, walkways, and landscape edging. Both hardscape and softscape elements are important to outdoor living spaces, with hardscape elements providing support and functional use, while softscape elements providing green and living forms in your yard. Whether it is man-made or natural, small or big, formal or informal, light or heavy, the hardscape elements of a garden add focus and balance. Just imagine your landscape with all just softscape elements without wood, stones, rocks, gazebos, walls, or brick, it is like having a forest in your own yard. For many centuries, bricks are used in building roads, walls, pathways, buildings, and all types of structures, that have specific patterns that can make a surface appear informal or formal, and can be reused as a good material for outdoor or landscape projects. Another form of hardscape is your deck, wherein it can be constructed using composite or man-made or engineered wood that is durable, resists rotting and mold, provides excellent traction, and does not require sanding or resealing. Composite decks are durable and make a perfect structure made of wood fibers as well as recycled plastics. You can also use concrete in constructing your patio or pathway project which can be texturized, stamped, stained, and embedded with other materials such as sea glass and pebbles. The different types of loose-materials used as hardscape elements include Mexican river rock, recycled rubber mulch, pea gravel, small stones, and recycled glass. Flagstone or natural stone is an attractive and popular choice for outdoor patios. Tiles are not just for indoor applications but also make a good material for outdoor living space.
