Soft and Hard Landscaping – What’s The Difference?

When you start looking at a landscaping job, you’ll often read the terms hard landscaping and soft landscaping. Hard landscaping refers to the durable and long lasting components that go into a landscaping job, for example the large pieces of rock, stone or masonry. It’s often overlooked but shouldn’t be as good planning up front can help avoid problems such as poor drainage and sinkage. Soft landscaping refers to the living part of your landscaping, for example the lawn, borders, ponds and mulch, all of which can be changed more easily that the hardscape components. The choices for hardscape and softscape elements are almost endless so it pays to ask for advice when considering a landscpaing project.
