The first step in any landscaping project should begin with the design. What are features you want to include in your landscaping project? What are the hardscape elements as well as the softscape? The hardscape includes all the permanent elements – patios, walks, walls, pools and other structures. The softscape is the planting, growing elements – trees, shrubs, perennials and the lawn.
The design aspect of landscaping is critically important because the design dictates the flow of the yard and defines how all elements will be incorporated
