Are you now in the planning process of mapping out your landscape design? With the warmer weeks of spring around the corner, now is a great time to outline your perfect landscape for the year. While you may already have a general idea of what you want in a landscape, there are some critical points to consider as you plan your landscape design. Before you get started, consider these landscape design tips for creating a beautiful outdoor space in 2019.
Determine the Main Purpose of Your Landscape
Although it may seem like a strange consideration, it is important to consider what you want your landscape to accomplish for your home. Will your landscape be an outdoor oasis for you? Will it serve as an entertainment space for your family? These questions are crucial for determining what to incorporate into your landscape this year.
Identify the Natural Boundaries of Your Existing Landscape
Does your existing landscape already include trees, large bushes, or other types of natural boundaries? Rather than going against the grain of the natural layout of your landscape, why not work with it? As you are mapping out a new patio or a garden in your design, consider the natural shape and boundaries of your landscape to enhance its existing features.
Add Depth Around a Focal Point
What will the focal point of your landscape be? Whether you choose a pool or a stone patio, the rest of your landscape design should build depth around a focal point. By choosing a central focus of your landscape, you can determine which plants, flowers, and trees will best accentuate this particular point in your yard so that everything else around it flows with visually appealing depth.
Make the Most of Your View
Another way to create a beautiful, visually appealing landscape is to make the most of the view that you already have. Frame your view with your landscape to create a colorful, texturized foreground for looking out into your landscape throughout the year. Not only will this design look beautiful in the spring, but it will also maintain its curb appeal into the late summer and fall months.
Utilize Different Textures
As you are building your landscape, consider incorporating various textures such as stone, trees, and colorful flowers into the look of your design. With different textures working together in your landscape, you can create a clean and polished appearance for your home exterior in any season.
