A Well Designed Landscape Requires a Well Thought Out Plan | Takoma Park, MD

When it comes to landscape design, you don't have to be limited. The landscape of your dreams can be achieved by simply mixing your imagination and a little bit of hard work. You can easily get what you see in magazines and on television.
But before you begin, whether you are planning a large scale project or just a few changes, it's important to consider a few aspects. Here are 5 things to keep in mind when planning your next landscape design.
  1. Incorporation is important. Knowing how to tie everything together in a unified fashion is important the outcome of your project. This should be done through balance, symmetry, proportion, and variety. Blending all these aspects together should be your ultimate goal. The hard work will pay off.
  2. Know your yard. Get down and dirty with the details of the topography, layout, soil type, sun and shade conditions, and water tables (and any other micro-climates). The more you know about your yard, the easier it is to make your ideas work.
