Remember there’s no right or wrong way to combine hardscaping and softscaping elements. Everyone has their own tastes, budget and time frame. Hardscape elements just tend to cost more than softscape elements due to the fact that hardscape elements last longer. They stay the same for years. Also a hardscape design is usually a bigger project than a softscape design.
