Hardscape vs. Landscape

What’s the difference between hardscaping and landscaping?


Hardscaping involves all of the non-living elements in your landscape design like concrete, bricks, rocks, stone, and wood. We use these elements to build features like paths, decks, pergolas, fences, and fire pits to increase functionality in your space. The goal with hardscaping is to create fluidity from the inside of your home to the outside with usable living space to entertain guests and spend time with your family.

Landscaping & Earthworks


Landscaping includes all of the “soft”, or living elements of your design like grass, plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers. By increasing the amount of greenery in your outdoor space, you can create a beautiful and relaxing environment to spend your time in. Proper gardening and landscaping can change the appeal of your home by increasing property value and overall aesthetic.

Our ultimate goal is to design a space where the hardscaping and landscaping work harmoniously to create the outdoor space of your dreams.

Grading refers to the levelling and sculpting of land. We perform grading for different reasons, for example, to allow for proper drainage and flow of water in your space, or to prepare the space for hardscaping elements like paths and patios. If you have low spots or sloping yards, we may recommend grading to prevent standing water or flow towards buildings.

Swale Development

Swales are shallow ditches that have gently sloping sides, commonly referred to as ditches or gutters, that ensure proper water drainage. You may wish to add a swale to your outdoor space if your area is prone to flooding or simply as a preventative measure.

Swales can also be used as an environmentally friendly way to capture rain water and direct it to your gardens! By leading rain water towards your garden you can ensure your vegetables, herbs, and flowers are getting the water they need without constant watering from your end. This proves to be an efficient strategy for those who live in dry areas to maximize the use of rainfall.

Weeping Tile

Weeping tiles, also known as drain tiles or perimeter tiles, are porous pipes used for underground water collection and discharge. This drainage system is responsible for keeping water out of your basement and protecting your foundation. A pipe is laid around the exterior of the building’s foundation in a trench filled with gravel and soil. Weeping tiles are especially important in areas where heavy rainfall is frequent, or where melting snow could damage your building. This is a cost-effective waterproofing solution that protects your property and foundation.
