Landscaping is similar to hardscaping in that it helps improve the aesthetics and overall beauty of your home. Together, these two features deliver gorgeous scenery that will impress you and your guests. Essentially, anything that contributes to your home’s overall aesthetics or function is part of landscaping. Hardscape is considered a subcategory of landscaping, so there is some overlap.
You can expect some hardscape features to spill over since landscaping is not all bushes, flowers, and trees. Vegetation does add beauty to your home, but it cannot stand alone. Other materials and surfaces are required to tie it all together. Fortunately, you have many options to pick from when it comes to landscaping.
Types of Landscaping Features
Landscaping is more than just plants. It encompasses anything contributing to the aesthetics or function of your home. With that said, there are many different types of landscaping features you can consider for your home. Below, you can find a list of popular landscaping features:
- Flower beds
- Flowering trees
Your landscape doesn’t need to have all of these features. In fact, many stunning landscapes only feature two or three. It really comes to what you want to achieve. Some homeowners wish to create a garden oasis in their backyard, while others like to keep it clean with a few walkway lights. Any of these options are acceptable as long as the features are handled appropriately.
That is where our team of designers comes in. They will work directly with you to develop a gorgeous landscaping concept for your home. From your backyard to the front of the home, they have what it takes to bring your vision to life.
Landscaping features more than just plants. It encompasses a vast range of features. With that said, you likely have landscaping questions. Here are some of those questions answered.
Do I need an irrigation system?
No. Irrigation systems are not necessary for maintaining and watering your landscaping. It can certainly help and be more efficient than hand watering, but it isn’t right for every property owner.
Does my lawn have to be grass?
No! Recently, grass has come under scrutiny for being high maintenance and harmful to the environment. Alternatives have risen in popularity, including clover, ornamental grasses, moss, and native plants. Our team is able to plant any of these options you may want. Yes, we still install grass for those who still want it.
Of course, it is important you check your HOA rules before choosing a lawn that isn’t grass.
What are annuals and perennials?
Annuals are plants that only grow for one year and then die off. Perennials grow for more than one season, returning after their dormancy, typically in the winter.
