If you’ve been considering options for a garden landscaping project in Hertfordshire, you have likely come across the term ‘landscape construction.’ With similar terms like ‘landscape design’ and ‘garden design’ also commonly used, we understand that things might become a little confusing. At Rococo Landscaping & Building Ltd, we specialise in all aspects of garden landscaping, so we are perfectly placed to clarify.
Based in Harpenden, our landscapers undertake landscape construction throughout the surrounding areas, including primary service locations like St Albans and Cuffley. With more than 50 years of shared industry experience behind us, our team happily answer queries regarding our building work, landscape design or any other service.
In short, landscape construction involves the physical building work needed to bring a landscape design to life. While the design phase produces concepts, drawings and documentation, a team of experienced and qualified landscapers must utilise their own expertise to turn the idea into a stunning reality.
As specialists in landscape construction, we can:
Quite simply, whichever form your landscape design takes, Rococo Landscaping & Building Ltd delivers it on time, within budget and to the standards expected from APL and HTA members.
Generally speaking, landscape construction services fall into one of two categories: hardscapes and softscapes.
When it comes to hard landscaping work, our landscapers utilise materials such as stone, pavers and various wooden structures like fencing, pergolas or decking. These permanent, manmade features provide contrast with soft landscaping elements while creating the practical architecture for the garden itself.
Some of the most popular hardscape features in our landscape designs include:
Water features such as ponds, fountains, waterfalls and dry riverbeds also fall into the hardscape category. From Harpenden to Cuffley, and from St Albans to Stevenage, our landscapers use decades of landscape construction knowledge to build these features in line with industry standards for quality and safety.
Soft landscaping work typically involves installations and services related to organic materials, be they plants, annuals, perennials, grass, shrubs, trees or soil. This aspect of landscape design and construction includes architecture, ornamental bed and tree installations, garden renovations and, for large-scale projects, master planning.
Successful softscapes require a deep understanding of plants and horticulture. Our designers and landscapers take numerous aspects into account, like ideal growing conditions, soil types and root networks. With this foundation of knowledge, we work to your specific preferences for colour, style and complexity, ensuring our results perfectly meet your landscape design.
Having completed your landscape construction in Harpenden, St Albans, Cuffley or the neighbouring areas, we can also provide ongoing maintenance services, helping to keep your garden in optimal condition.
