If you are considering the aesthetic of your property and find that you crave more detail and features, landscape design may offer a solution. Comprehensive landscaping can transform your land while functioning as interactive art and an outdoor haven in which to savor nature. Themes of unity, transition and balance are all achievable by adding features to your existing property and revitalizing the facets already on your land that make it unique and beautiful.
Why Do People Choose Landscape Design?
Landscape design is a comprehensive service that assists homeowners with achieving a new vision for their landscape. Some people already have a goal or vision in mind; others simply want to breathe new life into the land around their home and create artistic and elegant scenery that serves both aesthetic and functional purposes. Utilizing a landscape design service offers a number of benefits to your property.
Improve A Home’s Aesthetics
One of the most obvious improvements that landscape design can offer your property is its ability to completely energize and reinvent how your home and the surrounding area look, feel, and function. We believe that one’s outdoor landscape can and should achieve harmony and unity with the residence.
When a landscaping vision is realized, it should accentuate the features of the home and property to create artistic and beautiful patterns.
Increase Value Of Homes
Whether you are considering the sale of your home or would simply like to strengthen your investment, landscape design can have a significant impact on the value of your residence. In many ways, good landscaping performs the same function as upgrading the cabinets in your kitchen; you can select an option that suits your home, boosting not only the visual appeal but also the usefulness.
The Basics Of Landscape Design
Landscape design is made up of multiple parts depending on which goals you would like to achieve with your project. Experienced landscapers will be able to assist with all of the basic facets of landscape design, and we believe that in order to do this work well, we must bring both expertise and passion to each project.
Art Of Designing Features For Aesthetics
One of the main considerations that goes into landscape design is aesthetic appeal informed by a careful and thoughtful design. We pay close attention to considerations such as color balance and complementing features, strong lines that draw the eye in the desired direction, the textures of the features on your land, and which components serve as focal points.
This process of achieving the ideal vision on your land to accentuate not only the outdoor features but also your home’s structure is more art than science.
Two Major Components
As part of aesthetically transforming and enlivening a location, we consider two different but complementary concepts: hardscape elements and softscape elements. In order for a landscaping project to achieve an artistic and beautiful outcome, both of these features should be implemented together so that their interplay creates a unique take on the outdoor landscape.
Hardscape elements refer to non-living features of a design. We consider how features, such as pathways and patios, and structures like gazebos, influence the visual appeal of a garden. Careful use of paths and edging can guide the eye to appealing focal points and bring unity and clarity to a project.
Softscape elements are the living features of a project. These are the plants and flowers selected to achieve the desired vision. Softscape elements can be an exciting part of the process because they can change; certain trees or bushes will develop new color or texture depending on the time of year, and flowers with their variety of colors and shapes are highly customizable.
