Landscaping Design: Materials

Selecting the right hardscape materials is essential to achieve success in any landscaping design. The three main types of landscape material are stone, concrete, and brick.

Each one has unique characteristics that make it better suited for different applications. You should also consider the climate when selecting materials as some are more durable than others in harsh weather conditions.
