Hardscape is everything that is not plants.  The deck, stone patio, metal trellis, and granite pathway.  When you create a garden, it is useful to consider not only the cost and appearance of hardscape, but how it changes and ages over time outdoors.  Also, where did the material come from?  Did you find it on the street?  Or was it dug out of  a riverbed three thousand miles away?  Ultimately, how does it make the garden feel?
