What I Can Teach You About Gardens

Some Useful Garden Design Advice and Tips

The design principles being implemented in landscapes or gardens are more or less the same whatever period or style they ultimately come from. The following factors must be considered when it comes to well designed gardens: its scale, unity, tone and color, space division, light and shade, and space division.

Garden designers must also be mindful about the seasonal changes and the maturation of plants. And unlike decorate and fine arts, it is also vital that the garden designer must consider time.

First, the aspect of unity will be discussed.
Valuable Lessons I’ve Learned About Options

Unity is an aspect that is usually lacking in gardens of today maybe because of the influence brought about by the contemporary era. People are used to living hectic schedules that they only get to fix their gardens and lives as they go along. Nevertheless, when it comes to unity, it is more after the strength of the purpose or the totality of the garden design. The texture and tone and color can be used to unify the garden elements, but these do not immediately make a garden whole.
Overwhelmed by the Complexity of Gardens? This May Help

Gardens nowadays make use of an inward design because not all people can afford to live in country estates where the horizon is easily seem over the hill. However, this does not mean that such gardens cannot be designed in a static or progressive manner. Leading the eyes down an axis is the goal of the progressive type of garden design. On the other hand, the static garden design is made on an open space in the center where the eye is able to focus to the rest of the garden.

Another factor worthy of consideration is scale.

Whatever design you have in mind, it is always vital to consider its scale. You should take note that even an outdoor room itself competes with the vastness of the sky. It is important to take into account the laws of perspective as well as ample proportion of your design. Your garden or landscape space must be defined, and it should be in regard to human scale. For your garden to relate more with other people, if you happen to have assets of enormous size such as gigantic trees, you should include a buffer or transition of medium scale.

Now as regards the scale of the your garden design, you can choose one of two choices. You may opt to have all parts go together in tandem. On the other hand, you may choose only one part to dominate the garden. This is the one way of creating a focal point. You should also consider how both your eyes react. When you look down, your view is lengthened, whereas when you look uphill, your view is shortened. When you place your garden boundaries in shade, you get to either blue or enlarge them.
