Hard Landscaping

Hard landscaping, by which we mean everything except for the plants and earth, is a fundamental ingredient in the design of your garden.  Hard landscape materials give a sense of permanence, structure and personality that hold a garden together.  Hard landscaping connects all the elements in a garden by linking the planting and working areas to make a satisfying space in which to enjoy your garden.

Your garden should be used and enjoyed, so it needs to be designed taking into account both your practical requirements, wishes  and constraints of a particular site.  This approach treats the garden as an ‘outside room’.  The ‘outside room’ is somewhere to sit, to entertain and to play, somewhere which can also be decorated and furnished, just like any other room.

Gardens also offer the potential to create your own world.  This is another way in which the garden is more than ‘just another room’.  The possibilities for developing outside space are exciting: outdoor lighting, sound of running water and heating, living walls and bespoke garden furniture are just some recent ideas which are encouraging our clients to realise the potential of their gardens.  More than any room in your house, your outdoor room will allow you to express yourself and to create something special.

The recent ignition of interest and demand for better gardens has allowed us to respond with increasingly inventive and unusual structures, and more innovative use of materials, the potential for construction and effects is almost endless.  All of this means that your garden can be a truly inviting environment that can be moulded to your individual tastes and needs, whether a minimalist, calming space, a Moroccan courtyard, an Italianate heaven or a mediterranean oasis.  This is what will set your garden apart.

We can source hard landscaping materials to suit any design of garden. 

We have provided information about the most commonly applied aspects of hard landscaping on this website but would welcome the opportunity to discuss your individual requirements during a design consultation.
