On the other hand, softscape refers to the lighter elements of a landscape design including flowers, plants, trees, soil, and color schemes.
Both hardscape and softscape elements work together to achieve a beautiful landscape garden, and one cannot exist without the other, otherwise, it will result in a disaster. A landscape garden that is full of only softscape elements like flowers, plants, trees, and soil looks like a forest, instead of an elegant garden where a homeowner should suppose to enjoy a cup of tea in the evenings. Hardscaping is usually the remedy for those areas having problems growing pants or grass because of poor soil composition or places that stay wet for longer periods of time. Because stones and rocks absorb heat from the sun, hardscaping is perfect for wet areas as these elements dry the soil near and under it. Never plant live materials inside rock areas because they will dry the soil, plants must be planted in areas that can hold moisture and drain well like a shell bed. The purposes of landscaping include providing good drainage and minimizing runoff, that must be routed to planting areas and not storm drains so that drainage can occur there.
