An appealing landscape improves your home’s curb appeal and enhances your own enjoyment of your home living. More than the aesthetic appeal by having an inviting yard, you can add value to your landscape by considering its function. It is a good idea having rows of conifers in your landscape to provide superior shield from winds and they can also serve to create privacy in your landscape garden. Trees can help in reducing noise and light pollution, and provide great shade during summer, while hedges are used as outdoor spaces’ separators and boundary marks.
You can select flowers and plants for every season for a more enjoyable landscape garden all year round. Add evergreens for adding great texture and color, and different types of flowers in various flowering periods all year round. The hardscape elements of a landscape design refers to man-made structures like retaining walls, pavement, walkways, water fountain, and similar structures, and all of these must be done first before the actual planting as they use heavy tools and equipment. The softscape elements of a garden landscape involves the plants and flowers you use, and to achieve balance and visual interest, it is important to place the textures, shapes, colors, and height together. For example, round and small shrubs can be used to bring variation to the reeds’ vertical line, and flowers of complementary colors can enhance its visual impact. Adding a landscape garden seat is a great way for adding character and functionality to your outdoor space like benches, hanging garden chairs, logs, boulders, and retaining walls. It is also a good idea considering your kids needs and preference when designing your landscape garden because they would likely spend more time in your yard than you most especially at play time. Depending on your kids’ age range, it is best to consider an open space for swing sets, trampolines, slides, and other playthings, as well as large patches of lawn so they can run around on, trees for climbing, and interesting crannies and nooks.
