5 Colorful Ways to Soften Your Hardscape

Whether you are thinking of replacing a concrete patio with colorful pavers or just browsing ideas for a future projects in your yard, adding the right combination of plants will highlight your hardscape by creating a colorful contrast of textures.

The defined lines and bold look of pavers create a sense of organization and order which is often a welcome addition to any garden; however, this type of outdoor space also needs to express a sense of balance between all the elements within it. Using different species to line walkways and create focal points will draw the eye and encourage visitors to further appreciate the hard elements which the plants are complimenting. It is this complimenting that helps elevate the appeal of your space to the next level.
