Principles of Landscape Design
If you want to incorporate only the best landscaping design then you need to start thinking about unity. This is key to your landscaping design success and it will need to be applied to your entire yard, all around your home. Your entire properly will need to have a similar feel and look, if you achieve this your home will have a balanced look of symmetry and this will add all kinds of beauty to your home.
You can create a wonderful sense of unity to your landscaping design in a few different ways. The most common way of bringing harmony to your landscaping design is with similar types of plants and trees. This is easy to do and it will look fantastic. There is another way to get unity to be a basic part of your landscaping design and this is with heights. By having even different plants and trees of the same or similar height you will be bringing the whole design of your yard together like you never knew you could. It will look wonderful and it will be so easy!
Your landscaping design should make use of much more than just plants and trees. Flowers look great but they generally only bloom for part of the year so you need to find some other landscaping design elements that will look perfect all year round. To do this you will want to look at landscaping stones and rocks, or even wood chips just to name a couple of things. Hardscapes, like Paver Patios, Retaining Walls and Outdoor Kitchens are amazing additions to a landscape. You can even use granite and marble in your landscaping design. You can have nice little stepping stones, some statues or displays in your landscaping design or you can just have nice looking rocks.
A theme can go a long way towards making your landscaping design beautiful. If you love butterflies or hummingbirds then choose plants and flowers that will attract them to your yard and garden. This is a fantastic way to showcase your design and you will always have something pretty to look at. You can talk to us about which type of plants and flowers will work best for this where you live.

You can do anything you want with your landscaping design, you can design it yourself or you can use a landscaping design that you have seen in real or in a book.
