What is soft landscaping?

Here’s a quicky fact: not all landscaping is created equal. In fact, there’s a difference between hard landscaping and soft landscaping services.

As the name suggests, hardscaping refers to the hard stuff related to construction. We’re talking things like bricks, stones, gravel, paving, patios, decks and driveways. They are solid and unchanging.

On the other end of the scale, soft landscaping includes the living horticultural parts of a garden. So a soft landscaping specialist will typically work with plants, flowers, tress, shrubs, suculents or ground covers.

Our most popular services include:

  • customised soft landscaping design and concepts
  • turfing
  • mulching and soil improvement (fertilisation, irrigation, etc)
  • plant selection and new plants (ground or potted)
  • tree removal, pruning and care
  • garden clearing
  • garden edging

We pride ourselves on making a lasting impression with the quality of our work. Our aim is to give you a thriving and attractive garden – and keep it looking at its best.
