Softscaping vs hardscaping
The terms softscape and hardscape describe two distinct types of landscape design. In fact, most landscaping ideas incorporate both hardscape and softscape elements.
For example, the term hardscape refers to the non-living elements in landscaping, such as paving stones, wood fencing, retaining walls and walkways. Conversely, the term softscape refers to the living elements in landscaping like shrubs, flowers, grass, trees and soil. Consequently, softscaping requires a vast knowledge of soil types, climates, irrigation needs and plant management.
There are several ways in which ArborCare can softscape your property. For example, if you recently planted a tree, our team can design a softscape area around the sapling to add visual appeal.
Alternatively, if our team is hired to remove a diseased or dead tree from your property, we can design and construct a softscaped area to cover the stump or hole. We offer a variety of softscape elements, including mulch, groundcover and shrubs. We’ll help you create an attractive area that’ll add colour and beauty to your property.
Moreover, we can provide sod installation to create a lush green lawn where your giant spruce tree or old tool shed used to be.
Unlike hardscaping, softscaping requires regular care and maintenance. Softscape management techniques include:
- Pruning and trimming
- Weed removal
- Mowing and lawn maintenance
If you don’t have time to maintain your property over the summer months, we offer comprehensive lawn maintenance services that include aeration, fertilization, pruning and trimming.
