So What is Landscape Construction?
Landscape construction involves two major categories: Hardscapes and Softscapes.
Hardscapes are any man-made or non-living fixtures in your landscape. These include retaining walls, decks, stone pavers, outdoor kitchens, outdoor structures (pergolas, gazebos, cabanas, patio covers), water features (fountains, dry stream beds, waterfalls, swimming pools), fireplaces, outdoor rooms, sitting areas and fencing.
Softscapes are the live elements of a landscape. These include shrubs, flowers, lawns, plants and trees. Softscapes can also include other organic elements such as soil and compost.
Landscape Design lays out a plan for how the landscape project will be built. It shows location of the various elements and how each is to be arranged. Landscape designers use form, texture, line, scale, balance and color in order to create a functional. pleasing outdoor space.
Landscape Construction is the actual building and landscaping installation of the project. Landscaping projects can be a single item like a fire pit or sitting area to a complete yard makeover. Construction includes the building of pathways, flower beds, walls, restructuring the topography, and all structural design from outdoor kitchens to garden ponds, patios, swimming pools, decks and more.
