Hardscape and Softscape Services
San Diego Hardscape and Softscape
The ideal landscape will feature an artful blend of hard materials such as stone, brick, and concrete and soft, organic materials such as plants, soil, flowerbeds, and sand. These hard and soft materials should interact with and complement each other to form an outdoor space that flows and coheres into a natural extension of a home. It should reflect the personalities and lifestyles of the people who live within the home, whether it is playful and frivolous or soothing and tranquil.

Hardscape refers to the permanent structures that are installed in outdoor spaces and crafted from hard materials such as rock, stone, brick, wood, aluminum, iron, and marble. The San Diego hardscape specialists of North County Landscape are both artisans and artists when it comes to customizing and installing hardscape elements such as:
- Fire pits
- Barbeques and outdoor kitchens
- Concrete patios and sidewalks
- Retaining walls
- Patio covers
- Vinyl fencing
- Low-voltage LED lighting
- Recirculating ponds and streams
- Stone benches
- Arbors and gates
If improperly designed or installed, hardscape elements such as these can disrupt the beauty of a yard or garden and even cause damage to surrounding plants and soil. However, our hardscape experts perform a careful analysis of the outdoor space before recommending, let alone installing, any form of hardscape. When you entrust your yard to North County Landscape, you can be assured that any element we add will blend in perfectly with the other elements of your landscape, enhancing its beauty without causing harm to your trees, plants, grass, and soil.
If hardscape refers to permanent structures crafted from hard materials, then it might be useful to think of softscape as the natural, organic complements to these structures. Softscape elements include trees, flowers, vegetation, bushes, and other living testaments to the beauty of nature. The purposeful, aesthetically rewarding interweaving of these natural elements with the hardscape elements is the very definition of landscaping.
The addition of softscape elements requires as much meticulous planning and design work as the addition of hardscape elements. Careful attention must be paid to the arrangement of color, shape, and texture of softscape elements in order to ensure a result that is appropriate to the landscape and pleasing to the eye. Likewise, thought must be given to how these elements react to weather and the San Diego environment. Some softscape elements may be seasonal while others may provide year-round enjoyment.
Because our landscape and pruning specialists have expert-level knowledge of both plants and soil, they are particularly adept at creating stunning, yet functional softscapes. Whether you want to enliven your yard with bold swaths of color or add subtle accents to a pathway, driveway, or terrace, we can accommodate your wishes.
North County Landscape offers the full range of softscape services. We can revive your outdoor space through the addition of:
- Bark, mulch, and sand
- Trees, shrubs, and other plants
- Vegetable gardens
- Grass and ivy
- Synthetic Turf
Ultimately, your ideal yard should be unique to you. The combination of hardscape and softscape elements should express who you are and make you feel as comfortable and serene outside of your house as you are inside. The landscaping specialists of North County Landscape have the experience and skill to give shape to the desires and ambitions you have for your outdoor living space, whatever they may be.
