Applying established landscape design principles to your property will keep your project on budget. It will also ensure that when everything is finished, you have a landscape you are truly proud of.
Before you begin, make sure that you keep things uniform and consistent. Repetition of patterns and themes unifies the landscape and brings everything together. If you don’t, you’ll end up with a landscape that is disjointed and confusing.
You’ll also want to keep things simple and balanced. Don’t get too fancy with your plans, and make sure that you create a symmetrical balance throughout the landscape. Doing so will create an inviting atmosphere that your family and guests will be comfortable relaxing in.
Finally, make sure to pay special attention to your natural transitions, lines, and proportions. These aspects are the cornerstones your landscape is built around. Because of this, it’s a good idea to plan your landscape around them so that everything fits together and blends seamlessly when the last flower is planted and the last stone is placed.
