What is Soft Landscaping?
Soft Landscaping is the living, growing part of your garden or outdoor space. It includes everything from trees and shrubs, to flowers and grasses. Soft Landscaping can provide your garden or outdoor space with structure, colour and texture, as well as a range of other benefits.
Trees and Shrubs
Trees and shrubs are the backbones of any soft landscaping scheme. They provide structure and form, as well as shelter and privacy. When selecting trees and shrubs for your garden or outdoor space, it is important to consider their eventual size and shape. You will also need to think about whether they are deciduous (lose their leaves in winter) or evergreen (keep their leaves all year round).
Flowers and Grasses
Flowers and grasses add colour and texture to your soft landscaping. They can also attract wildlife, such as bees and butterflies, to your garden or outdoor space. When selecting flowers and grasses, it is important to consider the type of soil and exposure that they will need in order to thrive.
Benefits of Soft Landscaping
Soft Landscaping can provide a range of benefits for your garden or outdoor space. It can help to:
- Improve air quality
- Reduce noise pollution
- Increase privacy
- Provide shelter from the wind and sun
- Attract wildlife
- Create a more visually appealing space
When selecting plants for your soft landscaping, it is important to consider the benefits that you would like to achieve. For example, if you are looking to improve air quality, you might want to choose plants that are known for their ability to filter pollutants from the air. If you are looking to attract wildlife, you might want to choose plants that provide food and shelter for birds and insects.
