The Hardscape Design and Installation Company for the Coachella Valley.

Hardscaping can include almost any type of decorative or practical structure in a landscape, from driveways to fences to benches. Hardscape is a critical part of landscape design, providing definition and a sense of organization to the natural areas and features.



WHAT IS HARDSCAPE IN LANDSCAPING?


The term "hardscape" refers to all of the non-living elements in landscaping, such as a brick patio, a stone wall, or a wooden arbor. It is one of the two major subcategories of landscaping, the other being softscape. Softscape is all of the living and organic elements in a garden or on a lawn, such as trees, flowers, and grass. Xeriscape is the combination of Hardscape and Softscape elements.

Hardscapes are also decorative and practical structures in a landscape, from fences and driveways to benches. They are integral parts of your landscaping design, giving the definition and perception of organization to the features and natural areas.

The term hardscape refers to all non-living elements in landscaping, such as stone walls, brick patios, and wooden arbors. It is one of the two categories of landscaping, the other one being softscape. Softscape refers to all living and organic elements in a garden or backyard, such as trees, flowers, and grass.

Some factors greatly impact the cost of hardscape elements, including:

The size of your frontyard, or backyard
The elements you desire
The materials and plants you choose
Where the materials are from and their costs
The location of your property
The local labor cost

 

Know All the Costs.

When building a hardscape project, it’s recommended to plan how much you are willing to spend on the project and discuss your budget with a professional landscaper. It’s better to know the costs or get at least three estimates of the materials needed if you’re unsure of what to consider for your budget.

Be hands-on in knowing the costs of the materials needed for your hardscape project. From stones to plants and lighting, it can cost you more or less than your budget. That is also when you will decide whether to spend or save.

The American Society of Landscape Architects suggests, to begin with, 5 to 10% of your property’s worth. A good landscape design can add 15% or more to the value of your property compared to the other houses in your neighborhood.

How Hardscaping Helps to Achieve a More Sustainable and Stylish Frontyard and Backyard Space, and less Cost. Especially Landscaping Monthly Labor.
Hardscaping consists of man-made features, like paths or walls, incorporated into landscape architecture. Paved roads, driveways, pathways, fountains, patios, and decks are all elements found in backyard hardscapes. Hardscape materials often include concrete, wood, stone, brick, metal, gravel, boulders, mulch and pottery.
#1 Very Low Maintenance
The most appealing benefit of backyard hardscapes is the very limited amount of maintenance they require. Once you create the design of your choosing, your backyard is set for years to come. That means no watering, mowing, pruning, snipping or trimming is needed.
#2 Water-Efficient
Especially in areas where drought is common, hardscaping is a great solution to fight water waste. Instead of spilling out gallons and gallons of water to maintain your lawn, plants and flowers, a backyard hardscape allows you to go water-free. Plus, you won’t have to fret over your plants dying or your grass fading to a dingy brown.
#3 Increase Property Value
Filling your backyard with hardscape material can increase the value of your property. By creating an outdoor extension to your home, you add more usable square footage and the opportunity for potential buyers to envision themselves relaxing and entertaining in the space. In fact, 84 percent of buyers look for an outdoor patio when purchasing a home.
#4 Extend Entertainment Space
The deck and patio space is an extension of the home, especially in the warmer months. Incorporating a backyard hardscape will significantly increase your family’s outdoor experience with more room to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Create a pathway to a fire pit or even an outdoor kitchen to make your backyard the ultimate entertainment destination.
#5 Add Dimension
Say goodbye to the flat, wide-open backyard of yesteryear. With a little hardscaping, you can add multiple dimensions to your yard with differing levels, defined edges and weaving walkways to create quite the visually appealing space. On top of that, courtyard walls, pergolas, fences and stone boundary lines all add privacy from nearby neighbors.
#6 Reduce Erosion
When planned effectively, hardscaping materials can reduce potential erosion. By placing barriers in the form of stone or concrete in areas where erosion is likely, you can keep your ground intact for years to come.
