The Differences Between Landscaping & Hardscaping

While landscaping is a common practice that most are familiar with, hardscaping is a lesser known [but equally as important] process that can help to transform a home. Many times the two can go hand-in-hand when renovating a home’s exterior. In this blog post, we will explore some basic differences between the two as well as discuss how these services can work together.

Landscaping – This service involves grooming your yard’s living things – including trees, shrubs, bushes, soil, and plants. From mowing the lawn to trimming branches and removing weeds, it’s important to keep up with your landscaping to maintain your yard’s health and image.

Hardscaping – Hardscaping focuses on the solid, inanimate objects that make up your home’s exterior. Sidewalks, bricks, stones, paths, patios, walls, fences… you get the point. Many times these items are located nearby trees, bushes, and plants to maximize your property’s beauty.

Combining Landscaping & Hardscaping – Many times hardscaping projects are done in conjunction with nearby trees, bushes, and plants to maximize your property’s beauty. Guests love walking down an enchanted path, full of colorful flowers, stones, and plants. It gives homes a more relaxing aura and gives children the option to play safely on the grass while their family supervisors from the hardscaped foundation.
