Hard landscaping refers to the pavers, concrete, stone, asphalt or any other hard surface finishes that make up a landscaped area. Hard landscapes include plazas and footpaths.
Different types of hard landscaping can delineate pedestrian zones from vehicle zones, be used to withstand the impact of vehicle traffic, or to direct it through a site.
Well conceived 'hardscape' design can improve the
appearance and functionality of a project and raise its value.
