Amount of Hardscape

Anonymous added on May 4, 2011 | Answered

In landscape design, is there a ratio or way to determine how much hardscape you should have so that it does not look unbalanced? We have an acre and already a large pool hardscaped area, then we have a large play set area and soon to have a dock and sitting area down by our lake front. I still wish to incorporate a long sidewalk from the pool to the dock/lakefront area, and I still wish to have a large outdoor fireplace sitting area. Can't put the fireplace down near the lake sitting arrea due to large mature trees. I feel like it will be too busy and too much. Should I wait for the kids to outgrow the play set and place the fireplace there, as it is level and a good spot? I just hate waiting as it may be 5 years more.
