Do You Need Hardscaping?

Hardscaping and landscaping pertain to the landscape architecture of your home. Hardscaping includes all the “heavier” elements of exterior design, from driveways and sidewalks to fountains and fences, and can include both natural and engineered elements. On the other hand, landscaping involves the “softer” elements of a home’s exterior, such as soil, flowers, plants, and trees. Landscaping encompasses all the living elements of your exterior design.

Homes in California have unique needs when it comes to hardscaping. At Bright Builders, we understand the need for drought-resistant designs. We know changing your landscaping is a big undertaking, and we take it just as seriously as you do. At Bright Builders, we leverage our years of experience and established business relationships to help you avoid the frustrations of dealing with a less seasoned contractor. From the moment you begin your hardscaping with Bright Builders, you’ll feel confident in the team you’ve chosen.

Combine Engineered and Natural

Many homeowners are daunted by the idea of landscaping because they worry they will need to spend too much time caring for their plants. One solution to this problem is combining engineered hardscaping elements like large stepping stones, with drought-resistant landscaping. The hardscaping will fill the spaces that would have otherwise been covered with grass. This reduces the overall surface area you’ll need to care for, and the combination is visually interesting.

Consider a Side Yard

Don’t have lots of space in the front yard? With a little bit of space on your lot, there are dozens of possibilities for your side yard. Whether you want to add a peaceful fountain or a small fenced sitting area, we’ll work with you to make it happen.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hardscaping

If you’re one of those people who confuses the terms hardscaping and landscaping, here’s a simple way to differentiate the two. Hardscaping includes all the “heavier” elements of exterior design, from driveways and sidewalks to fountains and fences, and can include both natural and engineered elements. Landscaping involves the “softer” elements of a home’s exterior, such as soil, flowers, plants, and trees. It encompasses all the living elements of your exterior design. Think “hard and heavy” when you hear the word hardscaping, and “land, soil, and plants” when you hear the word landscaping. Hope that helped!

There is no set cost for hardscaping because every project is a little different. Your final cost will be determined by a variety of factors, such as the length of the project and the materials you select. More expensive hardscaping elements, like ornate stone features, can quickly increase your overall cost.
