When most homeowners think of landscaping, images of flowers, shrubs and trees usually come to mind. While these elements are important, they are only one part of the picture. To be truly complete, most backyards also need an element to complement the softness and beauty of plant life—hardscaping.

In general terms, hardscaping refers to the elements of a landscaping project that do not involve plants. When it comes to home design, hardscaping can include everything from concrete pavers, patio slabs and interlocking stone to retaining walls and precast site furnishings.

When properly implemented, hardscaping works to create interesting contrasts between the stone or concrete structures and the vegetation within your yard. It also serves to elegantly solve certain problems you may have. There are a few things you should consider when choosing and installing hardscapes into your own backyard oasis.
