Concept to realisation
A good quality garden design will not only have to be practical and functional but also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It also should be sympathetic to the surrounding.
For example, if using sandstone or bluestone paving, which is a natural material, it should also be complimented with appropriate foliage to soften and enhance the natural features of the stone.
If you get your plant mix wrong, your stone path will no longer look as glamorous as it needs to be, so getting appropriate landscaping done by a horticulturist who understands the difference between hard landscaping and soft landscaping is extremely important - after all, you garden isn't just your paving, retaining wall and your decks. They are essential and practical things to have in various garden scenarios but in the end the shining star needs to be the plants.
The plants are there to soften, enhance and create a tranquil, harmonious microclimate for you to enjoy in your garden.
Hard and Soft Landscaping - what is the difference?
Hard landscaping means all fixed surfaces e.g. paving, retaining walls, decking. Soft landscaping is best left to a horticulturist with extensive plant knowledge in order to achieve the best plant selection combinations to work in the space available. It also includes soil conditioning and ph, microclimate of plants and irrigation.
