Landscape, softscape, hardscape, poolscape, etc. are all terms that may be used to describe elements of your landscaping or renovation project.


Softscape refers to the elements of a landscape that comprise live, horticultural elements. Softscaping can include flowers, plants, shrubs, trees, flower beds, mulches, and soil.

The purpose of softscape is to lend character to the landscaping, create an aura, ambience, and reflect the sensibilities of the inhabitants.

We will work with you to design softscape elements that add beauty to your landscape.

Upper Canada Landscape sources trees, shrubs, plantings, soils and mulches from various suppliers in London and the surronding area to best meet your quality expectations.


The hardscape is often the backbone of a landscape project. It consists of the inanimate elements of the landscape design such as masonry, stone, woodwork, and built structures. For instance, stone or pressure treated wood retaining walls, concrete & stone patios, flagstone walkways, large planter boxes, wooden decks, gazebos and arbors are all elements of the hardscape in which we have experience at Upper Canada Landscape. We specialize in integrating natural stone into your design.

A well designed and installed hardscape is important for maintaining continuity and interest on a site and in many cases is both functionally and structurally necessary. Thus, we understand the key importance of careful ground preparation, layout and installation of hardscape features on your property and put forth extensive effort to insure that it is properly constructed.

The construction teams at Upper Canada Landscape have extensive experience in hardscape installation and are meticulous with installation to ensure that there will be no shifting over time, that the site drains properly and that it is visually pleasing from all vantage points. Our custom designs will add an element of beauty to your landscape in such a way that you would not have likely attributed to inanimate objects!
