Landscape Design

What makes a landscape something that is aesthetically pleasing and more than just a gathering of plants?

We have all seen some gardens or parks which look amazing. It isn’t a happy accident that these places look so good. Someone(s) have put a lot of time and thought into making it look that way

Lines

The first element of an award winning landscapes chester land oh is the line, which can run in any direction and perform different functions. Lines contribute to the feel and will move you through space in a way the designer envisages

Plant Forms

Plants come in all sort of shape and size and so can create a look and feel and variety. For example, if you have a straight line path and add tall columnar plants at each side, you will create a formal, linear feel.

Color

In landscape, the color is always changing. The seasons affect the color of individual plants, and the colors of a blooming plant are different from their non-blooming periods.

Colors can be weaved through the space to create a different vista throughout the year.

Texture

Landscapes are touch places, and this is not limited to the plants. A gravel path feels different from a paved one and elicits a different emotional response to the space.

Designers

A designer will bring all these elements together and creates a space which works altogether. Their eye and experience will help you create the sort of feel you want in an outside space as well as incorporating any special features you want.

If you want to add a fire pit or water feature they will have ideas about where and how to achieve the look you want to accomplish.

They also have that rare knowledge; they know what doesn’t work too.
