Traditionally, landscaping can be divided into two categories: softscaping and hardscaping. While softscaping refers to all plant life and water features in the garden, hardscaping combines the use of “hard” features, such as paving and garden ornaments, and other landscaping accessories.
Railways sleepers are mini concrete slabs that resemble wood and have a stunning effect in landscaping walkways throughout the garden. With a rustic, almost “cottage” vibe to them, these sleepers are ideal for your landscaping project.
SmartStone has two stepping stone options available to landscapers. On the one hand, you can use their timeless flagstones to create stepping stones throughout the garden. On the other hand, a very creative option exists for making use of tree rings as your garden stepping stones. Both have very beautiful garden effects.
Kerbing and Edging
SmartStone has several types of kerbing and edging landscaping accessories available, including:
- Tulbagh Barrier Kerb – Rock textured barrier kerb
- Tulbagh Mountabel Kerb — a rock textured, mountable kerb.
