What is the difference between softscape and hardscape?
There are two main components in landscape design - softscape and hardscape. Softscape is all under the 'Landscape' category seen above, they are the elements that are fluid and changing as they mature. Hardscape are design elements that are solid and unchanging as the years go by. The ideal landscape is a balance of both hardscape and softscape.
Hardscape refers to the solid elements in the design of the landscape that stay the same for years. For example: large rocks, walkways and pavers, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, water features, decks and driveways.
Softscape does not have that permanent quality that hardscaping does. It is the living part of a landscape that grows and changes with time and need to be maintained more meticulously. Softscape are the elements such as soil, plants, shrubs, trees, flowers, vegetables, vines, turf and color schemes.
