Hardscaping is use of hard products to create outdoor spaces or using products to divert water and make areas more usable. We use many products to build retaining walls from blocks, large precast products or stone. Many times these retaining walls help to divert water and create a more usable space for a patio, firepit or more. We install large boulders for accents or large stone steps to transition from grade changes. We also install flagstone, pavers, concrete, outdoor kitchens and all other products. Any product that one would consider a hard product made from concrete or other hard material would be considers part of the Hardscape. All other products including grass, plants and mulch would be considered part of the softscape part of the yard.
