What is Landscape Design?
Landscape design is the art of organizing elements and features of your yard and outdoor living spaces. The arrangement can be for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
Core Elements of Landscape Design
What is Harmony in Landscape Design?
Harmony (also referred to as unity) is how you use elements within your landscape design to create a theme or cohesive look. Essentially, if the entirety of your landscape consists of a series of unique elements when you or a guest take it in fully there will be a sense of completeness to the aesthetic.
What is Balance in Landscape Design?
Balance occurs when the elements of a landscape design are evenly distributed. Symmetrical balance in landscape occurs when two sides of the landscape look identical (mirroring each other).
Asymmetrical balance in landscape occurs when the distribution of landscape elements isn’t perfectly uniform but still creates a sense of relaxed satisfaction.
What are Proportions in Landscape-Design?
Within the context of landscape design, proportions refer to the relationship between encompassing size (surface area) and visual size (length, width, and height) of different landscape elements.
What is Transition in Landscape Design?
Transition in landscape design refers to the change from one landscape element to the next. A common way to define transitions is with edging and curbing (a service Hugo’s Concrete also offers!)
