Softscape refers to vegetation, the living or “soft” part of your landscape. Softscape features can be temporary, such as perennial flowers, or permanent, such as evergreens and shrubs. Softscaping adds character and ambience to your landscaping and reflects the tastes and sensibilities of the property owner.
A good balance of hardscape and softscape elements is the best way to create an inviting landscape. A design that is too hardscape “heavy” will look cold and uninviting. Whereas a landscape overflowing with trees and flowers without defined walls or walkways to break things up can look unruly or unkept. Landscape Craftsmen can help you find that happy medium and a perfect balance of “hard” and “soft” landscape features.
