Planning the Home Landscape
A landscape which is designed properly is a source of enjoyment for
the entire family it enhances a community and adds to the resale
value of your property. Landscape design involves much more than
placing trees shrubs and other plants on the property. It is an art
which deals with conscious arrangement or organization of outdoor
space for human satisfaction and enjoyment.
Some of its major goals include:
ââ¬¢ Organizing and developing the site for maximum use and pleasure.
ââ¬¢ Creating a visual relationship between the house and the site.
ââ¬¢ Reducing landscape maintenance to a practical level.
Americans spend tremendous amounts of money landscaping their
businesses homes streets parks schools etc. Much of this money is
wasted however because of little or no planning. People cannot
understand how to landscape until they know why they landscape.
There are several reasons why people landscape: some think it
improves the appearance of their place; others like to grow plants; still
others just want their place to look pretty. Too often these landscapes
dominate rather than serve. Masses of plants or other materials in the
landscape may take up a large portion of the space and leave little
room for people.
So how does the designer arrange space so that people will find it
useful beautiful meaningful and functional? His methods include:
ââ¬¢ Observing and analyzing the habits of the people who will be
using the space including their needs desires and how much
space each of their activities requires.
ââ¬¢ Studying past landscaping methods.
ââ¬¢ Surveying available materials to solve design requirements.
ââ¬¢ Analyzing the environment of the site including the view in and
around the site. The ecology of the site should be carefully
analyzed since it is important in determiningthe design.
Not all landscaping improves the appearance of a building. The work of
an insensitive designer can subdue a building conceal important
features or contradict the architect‘s intent. Good landscape design can
significantly improve the building‘s appearance by adding warmth
liveability and personality. It can also relate a building to its site and
environment and give it the desired degree of dominance.
Growth and change separate landscape designs from other arts. Most
works of art such as architecture sculpture and painting look their
best when new. Landscape designs however are at their worst when
new and improve with age. A well-designed landscape will seldom look
the same any two months of the year.
The urge to begin planting immediately is almost overwhelming.
Whether you are landscaping a newly-built home or redesigning an
existing landscape the results will be much more satisfying if you plan
first. If you follow the steps provided in this manual you can produce a
plan that will result in a satisfying landscape.
