Whether you need us to create a design for you or you have a plan in mind, we will mark out with you where all plantings will go and all boundaries of each landscape bed. We will discuss what options for ground cover ( river rock, mulch) works best in your landscape.
What is Softscaping?
Softscape comprises the animate (living), horticultural elements of landscape design. More simply put, it refers to the plants. Softscape elements are complemented by hardscape elements, such as wooden pergolas, retaining walls, paver or flagstone patios, or decorative concrete.
Why is it incorrect to say that softscape simply means all the elements in one’s landscaping that are soft? A tree is considered part of the softscape, but if you are playing catch with the kids in the yard and accidentally run full-steam into a tree’s trunk, will it feel soft to you? Hardly, because you will most likely come away with a bruise.
