Softscape vs. Hardscape for Your Yard

Softscape vs. Hardscape for Your Yard

When it comes lawn alternatives, many homeowners think that they have to choose between softscape or hardscape for their yard. Each has their own benefits and sometimes it can be difficult to decide which is going to be more beneficial for your home.

What is the difference between hardscape and softscape?    

Hardscape can include pathways, pavers, patios, and fire pits which add visual interest and entertainment value to a yard. Many homeowners are installing larger hardscape areas that are designated for family gatherings and relaxing. However, when designing your own yard oasis, it’s important to realize that an overabundance of hardscape can dampen the relaxing atmosphere. 

This is where softscape comes into play. Many yards have plenty of grass and massive shrubs, and while everyone loves a relaxing green yard full of life, too much can make your yard feel out of control. Plus, a lot of work goes into mowing lawns, trimming plants, and weeding. To truly increase property value and bring that zen feeling to your yard, a combination of both hard and softscape are required.

Artificial turf is the perfect natural lawn alternative because it doesn’t compromise the luscious greenery or soft touch of real grass. For homes with children and pets, synthetic turf is the perfect area to hang out and play. Additionally, the benefits of synthetic grass include low maintenance, no water, and increased property value should you choose to resell.
