Grass, plants, trees and flowers are just one aspect of beautiful outdoor spaces. A well-designed landscape strikes a balance between these living things and hardscape.
Hardscape is the implementation of non-living materials and structure in the design of a landscape like concrete, rocks, bricks, pavers, stone and wood. Hardscape can also include man-made structures like decks, pergolas, arbors and gazebos.
A critical part of landscape design, hardscape can help define the use of a space or set off other areas. There are many ways to use hardscape elements, including:
Concrete patios are a classic, low-maintenance and versatile option.
Brick patios offer a more upscale and natural look.
Flagstone patios are a low-cost option for natural stone outdoor flooring.
Tile patios are a great way to dress up a concrete slab.
Stone walkways are ideal for garden paths.
Gravel paths are an alternative to brick, concrete or solid stone.
Stone landscape steps made with heavy stone slabs make beautiful outdoor steps.
Metal fences include coated steel, a modern standard, and iron.
Wooden fences use the most versatile fence material wood.
Wooden decks are also hardscaping, just like patios.
Wooden arbors or gazebos enhance a landscape while providing shade.
Pergolas are arbor-like structures attached to the house or other building.
