Principles of landscape design include a fair amount of synergy, and knowing what works as well as what doesn’t.  What makes a memorable landscape is the little touches.  A garden can be made beautiful with the help of grass, wood, flowers, rocks, ponds, and fountains. If you want to make your garden more natural, you should go for fewer rocks and more plants. However, if you do not want to spend a lot of money and time on maintenance, then you should go for hardscape or rock gardens.. Whatever you choose,wen it works it really works, and when it doesn’t well, it is more infamous than great.

The Disneyland Hotel is a prime example of this.  When the Disneyland Hotel went through landscape remodeling because the park expanded, it took away a lot of the charm, leaving a lot of fans of the place disillusioned.  You obviously don’t want your own landscape remodeling to illicit a similar response.  To be fair, you’re also most not dealing with 10 acres, but still the principles are applicable even for a smaller property.

What is Your Style: Know This Before You Get Landscape Design

Your taste should always be considered when you’re consulting with a landscape design service.  If you love the cultures of Asia, then an Old West motif would not fit your needs.  Or if you love desert landscape, then an English country garden wouldn’t be right either.  Whatever your design, make sure you have accessibility in mind too.

Accessibility includes things that link elements of your landscape remodeling project together such as pathways, and elements that serve as a bridge.

So, start getting an idea in your mind of what you want to see.  Then get on the phone to a landscape design service to make it all come alive for you.
