Do You Need Landscaping?

Many people confuse landscaping and hardscaping. 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. It encompasses all the living elements of your exterior design. Discover the difference an experienced landscaping contractor can make!

Homes in California have unique needs when it comes to landscaping. At Bright Builders, we understand the need for drought-resistant designs. We’ll help you select beautiful landscaping features that can stand up to lower moisture levels and stay beautiful throughout the many years you’ll spend in your home. We know changing your hardscaping and 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 or landscaping with Bright Builders, you’ll feel confident in the team you’ve chosen.

Drought Resistant Plants

If you find that your lawn is prone to dry, browning grass, we can help you make the switch to a drought-resistant design. There are many drought-resistant plants like Shasta Lilies, Lavender, Azaleas, and Spirea that don’t require much water or maintenance. They’re the perfect solution for busy families.

Combine Engineered and Natural

Many homeowners are daunted by the idea of remodeling the exterior of their home 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.

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 Landscaping

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 landscaping 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, the materials you select, and the long-term maintenance costs for the plant life you’ve planted. We suggest adding drought-resistant plants to your design to minimize long-term expense.
