The term "hard" landscape is used by garden designers and landscape architects to define materials used for construction of a landscape design.
Hard landscape materials used are bricks, stones or rock, gravel, metal, outdoor furniture such as street lights, billboards, seats, etc. Hard landscape surfaces may refer to paved areas such as sidewalks, streets, housing development and business complexes. The features of the landscape include retaining walls, patios, fences, paving, railings and sidewalks. Urban hardscape has larger features such as traffic islands or traffic circles and paved roads.
