Landscaping includes both softscaping and hardscaping.
Hardscaping works to create an organized look to your property and is the preparation of the project. It includes excavating and incorporates heavier elements such as driveways, swimming pools, retaining walls, pavers and fountains.
Softscape features can include living features such as grass, trees, shrubs and flowers.
Once the hardscaping elements are installed, softscaping is used to fill in your landscape design.
