Hardscape / Softscape

There are two main components in landscape design. These two parts are Softscape and Hardscape. Hardscape consists of adding on to the exterior parts of your home by constructing hard surfaces such as retaining walls, walkways, and other various block or wooden structures. Softscape includes the soft materials that are used to add color to your yard. These elements include but are not limited to sod, plants, and trees. Modern Image Landscape Construction will work with you to blend these two components to capture your idea of your dream backyard escape.
