The American Society of Landscape Architects define hardscape as the non-living functional elements of a landscape. In the commercial and residential markets, these structures include sidewalks, paths, patios, and outdoor living areas. This is a rapidly growing market. Te Freedonia Group published a market report in 2014 stating that US demand for landscaping products is projected to grow 6.9 percent per year through 2017 to $6.5 billion. They identified that hardscape products will grow the fastest, driven by demand for patios and other features of outdoor rooms. The residential market will be the fastest growing segment, driven by a strong rebound.
