Stone, concrete, rock, or wood hardscapes give the shape and structure to the softscapes (the plants and the soil) of a landscape. Typically that means the paths, paving, patio, steps, and decking but at Riverside Landscaping we aren't short of ideas for how to add interest to your outdoors. What about a waterfall? A natural rock fire pit? Bridges, or retaining walls? Good hardscaping combines structure that's fit for purpose with design that makes it easy on the eye and particularly in commercial landscapes it is probably the key way you navigate your customers through your property.
Hardscaping for Residential Gardens
While it's the plants that bring it to life, the hardscapes are what give a garden shape and structure and are frequently have to put up with the heavy usage. So a professional hardscape has to be robust and rugged but still beautiful. A patio can effectively add another room to your house, and if you team it up with a firepit or outdoor kitchen you've got yourself an outdoor entertainment area or a focus for the family. Turn a dull backyard into a living area with a mix of well-designed hardscaping and night lighting. Give your pool a luxurious look with wooden decking and at the same time enjoy the gains in safety and comfort. Or perhaps you want to save your precious lawns and give support to flower beds with paving, or natural rock stepping stones through grass or water. Retainer walls using natural rock or beautiful brickwork can re-shape your garden and give you entirely new spaces for horticulture.
