Hardscapes are an EarthCraft specialty. The word hardscape is used to describe the hard, structural elements of a landscape design. Many landscapes include these hardscape elements which extend an interior space to the outdoors. Paver patios, sidewalks, fireplaces, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, and bars are all considered hardscape elements. Beyond the pavers, block, and stone, wood structures like pavilions and pergolas are other hardscape elements that complete an outdoor living area. The goal for a hardscape is to create a relaxing, functional, and aesthetic space that gets you outdoors while still having the amenities of your home at your fingertips.
