Outdoor analysis for hardscape and softscape design


After a thorough analysis of the area you would like to improve, we will plan a design that is a true extension of its natural and manmade surroundings, using a combination of hardscape and softscape to create your ideal outdoor space. We can’t wait for you to begin enjoying your dream design.


Hardscapes refer to all of the man-made elements of your built environment that are incorporated into your landscape, including: stone, brick, wood, metal, concrete, and lighting features. It is true that flowers and shrubbery bring the color and brightness to your outdoor living areas, but hardscaping carries the flow of your space. Consider what you want your want your flow to be and where you want it to lead. The options available to you through Yard Birds are nearly limitless. From a functional retaining wall, to a beautifully lit water feature, created only for your artistic enjoyment, we will create for you a lush and inspired space that you will enjoy spending time in for many years to come.

Where hardscapes refer to all of the man-made elements of your landscape, the term softscape encompasses all of the live horticultural elements of your built environment. Usually implemented once hardscapes are finished, softscapes evoke the ambiance and lushness in your environment. With thoughtful consideration, softscapes can provide privacy, beauty, and everything in between. Yard Birds will create for you a rich and lush environment, in which you will want to spend all of your free time.
