What is Hardscaping?: Driveways, Patios, and More! | Washington DC

What is Hardscaping?: Driveways, Patios, and More!“Hardscape design” is the term given to the portion of landscaping where soil or other greenery is no longer exposed. Softscape is the term given to earthen landscaping features.

Driveways, Patios, and More!

Small-scale hardscape designs include sidewalks, paved areas like driveways, patios, water features, and other walkways. Retaining walls are often used to connect the hardscape and softscape elements of a landscaping plan. Hardscaping is the best choice for high traffic areas on your property. A concrete or brick walkway is not muddied by rain or damaged by lots of running back and forth. In your back yard, you can hardscape a patio or outdoor kitchen, a path to the garden shed, other pathways to various garden areas, and anywhere else grass or mulch would not hold up well. For the price of materials and installation, hardscaping provides a functional and long-lasting product that will look good for years to come.

Materials Such as Flagstone
