The Kiwi Guide to Hardscaping

What is Hardscaping?

Hardscaping is an essential component of landscape design that involves the use of non-plant elements to create functional and aesthetically pleasing outdoor spaces. At Florida Ltd, we offer comprehensive hardscaping services tailored to enhance your Waikato property. Here’s your guide to understanding and choosing the best hardscaping options.

What is Hardscaping?

Hardscaping refers to the construction of non-living elements in a landscape. This includes features such as patios, pathways, driveways, retaining walls, and decorative elements like stonework and woodwork. These structures provide form and function, helping to define spaces and improve usability.
