Did you know hard landscaping differs from soft landscaping? If you want a new driveway laid in block paving, or a garden patio set in Indian sandstone, these are both hard landscaping services. If you need a lawn turfed or your borders planted, this is a soft landscaping service. Can you see a noticeable difference between the two? Don’t worry if you can’t because, by the end of this page, you’ll have a much better idea of what defines a hardscape and a softscape.

Some companies might offer an alternative perception of the key differences between hardscapes and softscapes. We like to think of it as a differentiation in the materials we use, and in how we apply our labour. Hardscaping sees our team adding structure to your home with retaining walls, new driveways, garden patios, pathways and water features. Materials used include block paving, natural stone, brick and garden fencing.
Our landscaping company uses hardscaping to add more structure to your Leigh-on-Sea property. The elements used are inanimate and never change. With a solid hardscape in place, it becomes much easier to decide upon the softer elements.
The softscape fills in your garden’s design. It will include living features, either temporary or permanent, like lawns, flowers, shrubs, hedges and trees. Soft landscaping elements evolve over time, are lighter in texture and chosen for their adaptability, an important consideration with the UK weather.
Our landscaping company undertakes hardscape construction work for domestic and commercial customers in Leigh-on-Sea.
Hard landscaping offers you more practical benefits. A new driveway or garden patio will give you somewhere to park the car or entertain friends. Garden fencing will contain the children or family pets. Even brickwork serves a practical purpose, particularly in sloped gardens across Essex. Each of these elements will add value to your Leigh-on-Sea home.
Soft landscaping adds to the kerb appeal of your property. It makes the overall aesthetic more attractive.
