What’s the Difference Between Hardscaping and Softscaping?


A lot of the work we do as a landscaping company falls into one of two categories: hardscaping and softscaping. If you’re thinking about renovating your property, you’ve probably come across these terms in your research. But what do they mean?


Hardscaping is a catch-all for the installation of any non-living landscaping elements. Installing any of the following features would be considered a hardscape project:

  • Patios (often made of brick, concrete, tile, or flagstone)
  • Iron or Steel Fencing
  • Pergolas
  • Driveways
  • Ground Cover Hardscaping
  • Pool Area Hardscaping
  • Erosion Control Walls
  • Stone Retaining Walls
  • Wooden fences
  • Decks
  • Stone Walkways
  • Landscape Steps (usually made of stone slabs)
  • Custom Curbing & Edging

As you might guess from looking at this list, hardscaping is hard work. It requires strenuous manual labor and sometimes even the use of commercial equipment.


Softscaping is the addition of any plant life to the landscape design. Some softscape features might include:

  • Grass
  • Trees
  • Flowering Plants
  • Shrubs
  • Accent Plants
  • Groundcover
  • Vines

Most landscaping design projects include hardscaping and softscaping elements that complement each other. And a well-executed design will showcase the beauty of your property. At Southern MD Landscaping and Lawn, we provide both hardscaping and softscaping services in Mechanicsville, Maryland. Give us a call so we can get started on beautifying your yard today!
