Hard landscaping refers to the design and installation of non-living elements in an outside space. Unlike soft landscaping which involves living things like plants and trees, hard landscaping is concerned with permanent structures such as patios, decking, water features, fencing and walls.
Hard landscaping is arguably just as important as soft landscaping since it provides the structural foundation of the landscape. An essential part of outdoor design and architecture, it provides valuable support for the soft landscaping components. Read on to find out exactly what hard landscaping involves.
Patios and decking
Patios and decks are two of the most common types of hard landscaping. These seating areas provide functional spaces for relaxing, dining, and entertaining outdoors all year round. Patios are usually made from concrete, stone, or brick, whilst decking tends to be constructed from wood or composite materials. Essex Landscape Brothers have designed and installed many patios and decks over the years, using the highest-quality material to ensure these structures look and perform their very best long into the future.

Made using quality materials with the highest level of craftsmanship and attention to detail, you can rest assured that a driveway or walkway from Essex Landscape Brothers will add endless appeal to your property.
Walls and fencing
Walls and fencing are also examples of hard landscaping, with these elements playing a crucial role in shaping the overall design and functionality of an outdoor space, while adding texture, contrast, and character to the environment.
