Landscaping: What’s the difference between soft and hard landscaping?

When it comes to the landscaping of a garden, the majority of homeowners don’t know where to start. It’s a known fact that landscaping is tough, and many a homeowner have said they’ll landscape their own garden before inevitably giving up.

If you are thinking of transforming your garden but you do not understand where to start, in this article we are going to look at the two main different types of landscaping: Soft and hard.

Although modifying your garden might be tough, here are the key things that you need to know about soft and hard landscaping.

Hard Landscaping

This is the most intensive part of a garden transformation, the part that the majority of people find the toughest. Hard landscaping is particularly labour-intensive, with few people having the time or expertise to complete it.

Taking on a hard landscaping project is a major commitment due to the fact that it is time-consuming and hard work! If you want to make sure that your garden is as beautiful as it can be, it is always a good idea to hire a professional gardener for this part of the project.

What exactly is hard landscaping? It can be any of the following:

  • Patios
  • Pathways
  • Paving
  • Timber decking
  • Fencing
  • Water features
  • Driveways

Soft Landscaping

This part of a garden transformation project can be less taxing on the body, but it isn’t any less technical than the other elements of changing a garden.

This element of changing your garden is about style and appearance, the lovely finishing touches that make a garden personal and special. With soft landscaping, you can transform your garden into a place that you love to relax.
