Landscape design

It takes shape as good quality urban spaces. The purpose is to create attractive, pleasing, and comfortable landscapes - public gardens, private gardens, playgrounds, vegetation and color, light and shade. The landscape design principles are proportion, order, repetition, and unity.

  • Proportion refers to the size of an object concerning other objects in the landscape. It's important to think about proportion between plants and hardscapes.
  • Order refers to the organization and balance in a landscape. Order can be achieved by using the more formal symmetrical balance or the informal asymmetrical balance.
  • The goal of repetition is to create predictable and familiar patterns and sequences in the landscape. To achieve this, landscape design elements or specific features can be repeated throughout the space.
  • unity refers to the perceived sense that everything is connected and works together to create the whole. Employing a design theme or style will help you achieve unity in your yard.
