Hardscape Vs. Softscape - What's the difference?
Simply put, a hardscapes involve walkways, retaining walls, brick patios, or a wood arbor or pergola to name a few. Typical materials for hardscape features include brick, stone, pavement, brick, asphalt, or gravel. By contrast, softscapes generally consist of the living elements of a landscape. These are your plants, trees, shrubs, flowers, as well as the sod that makes up the majority of your green space.
In dryer climates, it is generally advised to opt for more hardscape elements such as rock gardens or limiting your softscape elements to drought-resistant flora such as cacti.
In the lush, fertile climate of Vancouver Island, however, we benefit from a natural ecosystem that promotes the growth of a vast array of plants and flowers so do not face the same constraints of a super-dry climate. That said, dry summers and water restrictions have become more common, often leading to individuals to opt for more hardscape features that generally require less maintenance.
Ultimately, the composition and interplay of soft and hard features in an immaculately crafted landscape will be guided by practical concerns such as climate, ease of maintenance, and the topography of your land, but also your unique vision and personality being expressed in the outdoor space you see yourself being embraced within.
