Concepts in Landscape Design
When you and your partner in landscape design from Absolute Landscape & Turf Services, Inc. start working together, there will be several design concepts that you may start to notice. Unity of the entire design is important, and their designers will work to achieve this unity of design as elements in the design change until a final cohesive design is achieved. Along with this harmony of design will come aspects of proportion. You don’t want to have a giant chunk of some plants in one area and no other plants anywhere else. Keeping things in proportion is important so that one element doesn’t look out of place with the rest.
Transitions throughout the landscape design are also important. As you enter the newly designed area you want it to flow well, along with moving from one element to another, such as a walkway into a patio area, or into a water feature. Subtle touches help with these transitions from place to place and tie everything together.
Landscape Design is More Art Than Science
While some aspects of your outdoor space are very much science-based, other aspects of landscape design have an artistic flair to them. Some of this art comes from the different plants that will be used for the space. Depending on what the client is looking for, taller plants might be called for, or in other cases, small flowers will do the job. When it comes to the hardscaping portion, rather than using hard angles everywhere, some portions may be curved to soften the whole space and make it more inviting and pleasant. Even the materials used for the landscaping can make a difference in how the space feels. More wood treatments give things a more natural feel, whereas using more metal features changes things up.
From front entrances to backyards and many other different outdoor areas at your Woodbine, Marriotsville, Highland, Howard County, Ellicott City, Sykesville, or the surrounding area property, the landscape design experts from Absolute Landscape & Turf Services, Inc. can transform your otherwise unremarkable space.
