Landscape Construction services generally fall into two broad categories: hardscapes and softscapes.
Within a landscape, materials such as wood fencing, stone, pavers, and sometimes, plastics, are referred to as hardscapes; hardscape services include stonework such as outdoor kitchens, barbecues, fireplaces, retaining walls, fire pits, and flagstone patios along with wood arbors, decks, and fencing. Water features such as fountains, ponds, dry river beds, and waterfalls are also considered hardscapes.
Softscapes typically refer to services and installations involving plant and other organic materials: annuals, perennials, shrubs, grass, trees, and soil. Softscape services include landscape architecture, design, ornamental bed and tree installations, landscape renovation, and master planning for estates and large residences.
Landscape Construction projects are permanent to semi-permanent installations and should be considered an investment in your home. These projects can range from only a couple hundred dollars to thousands of dollars depending on the number of services involved and complexity of the project.
