Decorative landscaping includes hardscapes. A hardscape is any paved portion in an outdoor area including block walls, outdoor fire pits, decorative rocks, and fireplaces. There are several purposes for such features. One is convenience. Hard surfaces make it easier for people to walk around the area. Another may be functional. Hardscape design can be integrated into your irrigation design to help with the flow of water. This can prevent unplanned ponds from forming in your garden when it rains.
From an aesthetic perspective, a hardscape can provide shape and detail to any scene. Your landscaper can build hardscapes that also help to support softscapes, which consist of things like flower beds and artificial hills. Hardscapes can also act as boundaries for water features and make sure your fish pond doesn’t dry up in the summer. A good landscaping design incorporates both hardscapes and softscapes seamlessly with retaining walls, ponds, walkways, and landscape lighting design.
