When it comes to a garden landscape, most people immediately think it’s a green area with some plants and trees integrated into it. Landscaping projects often focus on lawns, flowers, and other plants, but landscaping is more than just green space. Equally attractive effects can be created using the elements of stone, gravel, wood and other “hard” materials. This particular feature is often referred to as hard landscaping.
Hard landscape elements may include:
- Patios and Paving
- Driveways and Walkways
- Garden Paths and Steps
- Outdoor Furniture

Hard Landscape elements fixed in their simplest form can support soft landscape elements such as plants, trees and soil. Ideally, these two elements should combine together to form a harmonious space that connects with the world and nature around them. These landscaping elements can create outdoor spaces that can be used for a variety of purposes. It can also be part of a project like a security, lighting and privacy plan.
To design a garden, the best practice for planning purposes is to start with is hard landscaping. At the beginning of the planning process, this will give the structure for planting and any soft elements used in the project (these can be raised flower beds, hedges, turf, trees, soil or mulch). One more practical aspect of hard landscapes is the ability to avoid structural problems such as flooding, decay and cracks that can be caused by excessive groundwater and agriculture. Hard landscaping paths in your outdoor space can protect the soil and other soft elements from ground damage and not only landscape gardeners will appreciate the benefit of it, but it will create a practical and finished look to your outdoor area.
