What Is The Difference Between Hardscaping & Landscaping?


704c0bc86d1cba8d76d37c7dcc03d794Is your yard lacking curb appeal? We can help you with that! The professionals at KB Construction are also experienced landscapers that can make your yard just as beautiful and well designed as your custom built home.

In addition to landscaping, we also provide hardscape services. Confused on what the difference is between these two? Here are a few facts about the two and how somewhat different, they also serve the same purpose.


Hardscaping refers to the solid, hard elements in landscape design that stay the same for years. Examples of hardscape designs are:

  • Patios
  • Decks
  • Driveways
  • Walkways and stairs
  • Fire Pits
  • Retaining walls


Landscaping, also known as “softscaping” refers to designs to your yard that will typically change. Examples of landscaping are:

  • Plants
  • Shrubs and hedges
  • Flowers
  • Trees
  • Grass

When speaking to your professional landscaper, you should remember that it shouldn’t really be thought of as hardscape vs. softscape design, but rather hardscape and softscape design – the best landscaping actually combines both.
