Fences, lawn ornaments and rocks can also sometimes be referred to as hardscaping.

Hardscaping can greatly improve the appearance and overall appeal of an outdoor living space by creating a transition between a home's interior and exterior. The “Hard” in Hardscape refers to environment structures made of hard materials (concrete, pavers and even asphalt) that are constructed in an outdoor environment. Hardscapes can include paved areas, retaining walls, sleeper walls, stairs, walkways, and any other landscaping made up of hard wearing materials such as wood, stone, concrete etc. as opposed to softscape, the horticultural elements of a landscape.
From an urban planning perspective, hardscapes can include very large features, such as paved roads, driveways or fountains and even small pools. Most water features are hardscapes because they require a barrier to retain water, instead of letting it drain into surrounding soil.
Hardscaping allows the erection of man-made landscaping features that would otherwise be impossible due to soil erosion, some that compensate for large amounts of human traffic that would cause wear on bare earth or grass. For example, sheer vertical features are possible.
Hardscaping can serve many functions other than simple beautification, as well. It can provide privacy in the form of fencing, shade and shelter via overhangs or structures like gazebos; it can also provide topographical organization in the form of retaining walls.
Hardscaping also naturally reduces the amount of exposed lawn in an outdoor space, which will appeal to anyone who's "mower averse."
