Landscaping is divided into two distinct areas - "softscaping" and "hardscaping." Traditional landscaping is the "softscape" part - shrubs, trees, sod, and flowers. Today, complete landscapes, large and small, combine hardscaping with the living plants to create a more elegant and functional outdoor living space. At Heinz Nurseries, we recognize that a portion of your life is spent enjoying the exterior features of your home, such as fire pits, patios, and pathways through your garden.
Hardscaping is comprised of inanimate (non-living) materials. Most frequently, this refers to inter-locking concrete pavers, wall blocks, gravel, boulders, flagstone, steel edging, and wood. Common features, like paver patios and retaining walls, highlight the design of your shrub beds and lawn. Patios and low walls can give you clean, level seating areas for entertaining or simply enjoying your garden. They also help contain erosion issues, re-direct water flow, and stop the daily wear and tear from pets and children on grassy areas.
