While the term ‘structural landscaping’ may be unfamiliar to those not in the construction, property/infrastructure development or project management space, we would all be well familiar with the various components that comprise the practice of structural landscaping.
Structural landscaping covers a broad range of construction and landscaping work, but the overarching theme of structural landscaping is: work related to the construction of external landscape features and non-habitable structures.

Structural landscaping work falls into two distinct categories:
Simply put, hard landscaping covers any structural landscaping work that employs hard – and often large – elements, such as sod, brick walls, retaining walls, masonry, stones, rocks, footings, brick edging, and so on. These hard landscaping elements help create a sense of space in a landscape, while also contributing to the management of essential landscaping requirements such as erosion control and drainage.
In contrast to hard landscaping, soft landscaping is typically defined as the living parts of a structural landscaping job. Soft landscaping brings together elements such as grass, plants, trees, dirt, pond structures and water features. And importantly, soft landscaping also includes essential practical requirements for managing and maintaining these softer elements, such as irrigation.
Soft and hard landscaping often overlap in structural landscaping work. For example, a water feature such as a fountain or waterfall is classified as a soft landscape feature, but the materials used to build a fountain or waterfall are components of hard landscaping.
