Hardscaping involves anything stationary, man-made, or non-living in an outdoor environment. It is considered by most to be a necessary part of both urban and residential landscaping. When done right, hardscaping can beautifully accentuate the natural elements of your outdoor spaces.
With hardscaping, we can create eye-catching pathways, install gorgeous pavilions, adjust the land with retainer walls, and even make your home look bigger by extension! With Outdoor Living by Mr. Mulch, you can achieve the stunning outdoor aesthetics of your dreams.
What is the Difference Between Hardscaping and Softscaping?
Softscaping is a term used to describe the soft, living things in your environment. Trees, flowers, bushes, shrubs, and others are all elements of softscaping. Hardscaping, on the other hand, refers to objects that are not alive. These can be natural substances like stone or man-made objects such as brick, wood, or ceramic structures.
Both of these elements are important in any outdoor space. The key to a beautifully-landscaped home is a careful balance between natural and artificial. If your lawn has too many plants, bushes, and trees, it may look overbearing. Alternately, too much hardscaping can make your home look cold, barren, and commercial. Finding the perfect balance for everyone is one of the most challenging yet crucial parts of our job.
Why Should I Consider Hardscaping?
Besides aesthetics, there are a wide variety of benefits to incorporating hardscaping into your yard. For instance, hardscaping can not only improve the curbside appeal of your home, but it can raise the value of your property as well. Even simple features like stone paths can help organize and streamline the appearance of your yard and add distinction to your greener spaces. Introducing the right hardscaping fixtures to your outdoor spaces will make your property look defined and beautiful.
