Hardscaping in St. Louis
Next Level Landscaping in St. Louis
Landscaping is a creative and complicated process. For DIY-ers, or those in the industry, it can be difficult to find just the right thing to tie a space together. However, hardscaping may be just the answer you’re looking for. Using man-made materials and structures within a green space, the stark contrast adds a point of interest within the design.
These points can be walkways, walls, ornaments, statuary, and of course, patios. At The Wall Guys Construction our specialty in the hardscaping world is creating patios that blend perfectly amidst their softscaped surroundings. Whether concrete, flagstone, brick, pavers or gravel, the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can do with a hardscaped patio.
Hardscape vs. Softscape
Up until now you may not have heard of hardscaping, let alone softscaping. So what’s the difference? As you can maybe guess, while hardscaping provides the solid focal point of a yard, softscaping fills in the rest with foliage and lighter elements. Our St. Louis clients love the combination of these two aspects as much as we do, and we think you will too!
Hardscaping includes structures such as:
- Water features/pools
It also includes aspects of outdoor living spaces such as kitchens.
Softscaping includes non-structures like:
- Vegetable gardens
Unlike the permanent hardscape structure, softscape designs change organically over time. You can change up your foliage design as much as you like, maybe even doing something different every year! Whereas doing this with a hardscape feature would just be unreasonable.
No landscaping project is complete without elements from both hardscape and softscape. The terms were coined to play off of each other and do so brilliantly.
By using both design elements, you’ll never grow tired of your yard. While your patios and walkways will stay the same, just requiring the usual maintenance, you’ll be able to get creative as much as you like with the soft elements.
Because of the unchanging aspect of a hard design element, it is important to let a professional company like The Wall Guys Construction that’s been around the block a few times take care of it for you. Over the years we have learned many techniques for working with the natural environment of St. Louis yards and know that every project is a unique.
While we love new and different projects, no matter what your patio build requires, we will apply the same tried and true techniques for high-quality, long-lasting results.
