Hardscape elements like driveways, patios and walkways add structure and design to the softscape elements. However, they should be designed and created with diligence to create the best landscape.
Homes and outdoor spaces seem to appear better and better year after year. Landscaping, which was conventionally restricted to tall swaying trees, shrubs, colorful flowers and creepers is now grown by leaps and bounds to include a variety of elements.
Los Angeles hardscape is the term that defines all elements, which provide shape, structure and design to the softscape elements. They do provide that much needed edge to the landscape.
Here are a few hard scape elements that promise to spruce up the landscape design and appeal.
- Driveways, although primarily functional, add spice to the outdoor space. The gateway to the home when created with the right material and design looks extremely appealing. What’s more, a well designed driveway is more welcoming.
- Walkways across the greens not only serve for movement without trampling the greens, but also define the softscape elements. They demarcate the flower beds from the turf and the pond from the greens.
- Stone patios extending into the yard serve as the perfect space to host family and friends. What’s more, when decked up with appropriate furniture, it appears all the more attractive.
- Pools, spas, fountains and other water features glorify the outdoor space. They add the soothing element. Sitting beside the fountain amidst the greens is definitely a fulfilling experience.
- An outdoor cookout provides an opportunity for home owners to enjoy their summer evenings with family or friends cooking out burgers and hot dogs. It sounds like the perfect summer evening.
- Undeniably, hardscape elements create the undying appeal to en estate or property.
However, hardscape elements created randomly fail to serve the purpose. The elements can be justified only when placed and designed in coordination with the house and softscape elements.
