Hard landscaping is the backbone of your garden – it can include paths, driveways, garden walls and patios, arches, pergolas, arbors and gazebos, raised beds and water features as well as lighting and artistic touches that are built in.
A wide range of hard landscape materials can be involved, such as wood, brick, stone and reconstituted stone products, gravel, concrete, glass, metals etc. Hard landscaping can also describe outdoor furniture and other landscape products.
Hard landscaping is all about improving the aesthetic appearance of a piece of land by changing its contours and adding ornamental features. It is important that the garden designer chooses hard landscape products and materials which go together well – as must be done for interior design, architecture, fashion and other categories of design.
But the logistics of hard landscaping are just as important: the bedding of paving; the routing of water channels and electrical cables, the installation of drainage, irrigation and the problem of excessive water run-off are just a few hard landscaping elements to consider. That is where the knowledge and experience of a qualified garden designer and installer is important.
