Georgia’s Hardscaping & Retaining Walls
Hardscape refers to hard landscape materials in the built environment structures that are incorporated into a landscape. This can include paved areas, driveways, retaining walls, sleeper walls, stairs, walkways, and any other landscaping made up of hard-wearing materials such as wood, stone, and concrete, as opposed to softscape, the horticultural elements of a landscape.
Landscape Architects and others in the field of landscape design often use the terms “softscape” and “hardscape” to distinguish between plants (soft) and rock or soil work and all the other “hard” elements of landscaping. A simple definition of “hardscape” is anything in the landscape that is not plantings, soils, etc. Atlanta Sod Company provides hardscaping and softscaping services for residential and commercial use.
Hardscapes are permanent structures that require installation and construction. Stone pathways, Outdoor Kitchens, Firepits, and Patios are all considered hardscaping. From custom stairways using large boulders to a beautiful paver patio with included fire pit, Atlanta Sod Company is the obvious choice. These unique components are sometimes the focal point additions to the best landscapes in Atlanta. Please contact us today to evaluate and estimate your new hardscape project.
Hard landscaping involves projects that cover the entirety of the yard and that are necessary before soft landscaping features come into play. Hard landscaping is very much altering the foundation of the yard, the “bricks, and mortar”, and so only once this is completed can the landscaper begin to focus on the more beautiful features of the yard, hard-soft landscaping such as the floral arrangements, trees and shrubs and perfecting color schemes.
It could be sleek flagstone patios, pebble mosaics, brick or rustic gravel walkways; perhaps a uniquely shaped boulder placed as a focal point in the garden or near a building to highlight architectural features.
Hardscaping allows the erection of man-made landscaping features that would otherwise be impossible due to soil erosion, including some that compensate for large amounts of human traffic that would cause wear on bare earth or grass.
