As towns grow more and more close to the natural landscapes close to them, it is important to be cautious about the landscapes so as not to destroy, the benefits of landscaping and design cannot be overemphasized. All these benefits are in order to make the environment more appealing to the eye
When these designs are put in place to already existing homes and outdoor environment, professionals try their level best to maintain harmony between outdoor and indoor environment. The professionals must allocate functional outdoor space for areas like ponds and water features. It is noted focal points come from use of deliberate shapes. All these must be done and a balance must be maintained in the design
Features such as ponds are used to create pleasing visual effects, plants are also used to improve on their beauty. Terracing of lawns are also added or maintained so as to improve beauty and also prevent disasters such as soil erosion. In addition trees are also taken care of through pruning and also planting others so as to maintain their beauty that was there before even after the new design.
Garden paths are a well-known feature in some areas and trellises allow use of plants that bloom throughout the area. Some of the old land scape can be replaced such as overgrown plants, so as to add treasure and contrast on the new design.
Where buildings and homes are part of the project the existing structure may be changed so as to bring out the open view of the landscape outside .In lawn patterns shapes are used to bring out water features .Plants are placed of different colours are used so as to enhance the landscape and show presence of life .
Bigger water features are redesigned top reflect previous landscape of true area, patterns used as the bottom of the pools maybe be same as those found in surrounding area. Fountains can be re purposed and used in sites together to their original location to add focal point to the area
Terracing is done in both lawn and areas which are not easily assessable. And the building may have a very big view of a valley or river nearby. The gradient of the garden can be changed so as to allow easier irrigation and proper drainage and to also restore look of the property.
Landscape designers who work on designs today must deal to design with less natural space. This is to prevent tampering with environment which might lead to disasters such as global worming. They must shape the landscape so as to retain its original function. They must design in order to improve already existing landscape through smart irrigation.
Smaller landscape areas may not be as big enough as as larger projects do but they are also important. Smaller landscape give a chance designers to improve on their skills. Large projects may take time to come up with but their rewards are satisfying. Present landscape design help to incorporate space into beautiful areas which are a blessing to many.
