Pennsylvania Hardscaping

Hardscapes and Landscaping Elements

Hardscape and softscape are the two main categories into which landscaping is sometimes split.

Trees, shrubs, and grass are examples of live, growing items that are used in softscapes. Items made of hard substances like rock, stone, and concrete are known as hardscapes.


In landscaping, objects constructed of stone, brick, tile, concrete, rock, and other hard materials are referred to as hardscapes. Walkways, driveways, paths, stepping stones, stairs, and courtyards are where this is most commonly seen. Decks, patio covers, retaining walls, fences, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, and other structures are also categorized as hardscapes.

Water Features

The term "water features" generally refers to objects that include water, such as fountains, waterfalls, streams, pools, and ponds.

Outdoor decor

Everything else can be categorized as outdoor decor. These consist of moving parts like edging, lighting, sculptures, statues, birdbaths, birdfeeders, patio furniture, bubbling urns, potted plants, and so forth.

It doesn't matter what category an element is classified under because there is some overlap between the categories. Instead, emphasis is placed on how effectively the parts work together to create lovely outdoor living environments, and at Piazza Property Pros, that is our goal!

Finding Balance with Hardscapes

Both commercial and residential landscaping require hardscapes such as a driveway, a deck, a patio, or a pathway. Hardscapes are practical and simple to keep up if an experienced provider builds them correctly. However, it's crucial to refrain from constructing outdoor spaces solely out of hardscapes. To create cozy outdoor living areas, hardscapes must be matched with softscapes and various other elements. Plants soften the overall appearance and add color and shade. Relaxation is enhanced by the calming sounds of water features. In addition, yards with only hardscapes can get very warm because heat is absorbed and retained by rocks, stones, and concrete. Piazza Property Pros can create the perfect outdoor living environment by balancing all of these landscaping elements.
