There are a few hard landscaping features that really make an impact when installed to the highest standard. If you’re interested in changing your outdoor living space, and you want to include components that both impress and complement the surrounding area, then you may be wondering what to choose. With this in mind, we’ve created a list of four features to consider when renovating your garden.


Decking is a timeless landscaping feature. Not only does it provide warm and welcoming textures and colours, but it also serves a purpose too. It can be used to extend the floor space of your home and can be used for all kinds of activities.

Whether you’re looking to entertain, relax or even install a hot tub, a decking is the perfect choice. You can decide between hardwood, softwood and composite materials to really suit the look and feel of your home.


Paving is a triple-threat garden feature. If you’re doing some landscaping in your home, then paving will likely be top of your consideration list. That’s because it can be used in a variety of ways. Paving is extremely versatile, so whether you want to create pathways throughout a garden, or a set space for hard standing, you can opt for paving as the safe decision.

It comes in a wide range of stone materials and colours so customization is seamless to complement the planting, house and other landscaping features surrounding it.

Raised Planters

Raised planters are a great landscaping addition to any garden. If you’ve got a green thumb, or you just love the colour and texture that a high quality raised bed can provide, then opt for a planter. You can grow vegetables for cooking, flowers to pick or even shrubs to add colour and variety to a garden. What’s more, you can have raised planters made from all kinds of materials. Metal, timber, plastic, or concrete are just a few of the options available to you.

Landscaping Masonry

Bricks or stone walls fall under the category of masonry, and their an often overlooked decorative landscaping feature. Most people look at a wall as serving a purpose. Whether it’s to retain, divide or block an area on your property, it’s sometimes hard to think how a wall could improve the look of a garden.

However, stonemasonry in particular is an artform that experts can craft from a variety of different stones to create texture, patterns and colours to improve the overall look of a space.
