What is the difference between hard and soft landscaping?

The difference between hard landscape and soft landscaping is that the former consists of concrete, bricks, stone, etc. while the latter includes living things like flowers or trees.

The perfectly landscaped garden will be a mixture of both hard and soft landscaping, each element enhancing the other to create a paradise.
