In landscaping, the success of your project doesn’t only depend on how beautiful are the plants that you are planning to include, how complete are your tools and supplies and how many tips and information you have. Understanding landscaping design and its principles is a very important factor that you have to keep in mind if you want to see your garden beautifully landscaped.
Here are the basic principles that you have to remember when choosing your landscaping design;
Harmony – This is the main factor that you have to think about in a landscape design. You can do this by grouping alike garden elements together; including plants, garden decorations or lights. Try to create a big, single design out of the groups of plants or decors. You can group together elements with the same height, colors, textures and sizes.
Balance – If your landscaping design has balance, you can expect a great output. You see, anything with balance or equality can be very beautiful. Example of this is symmetrical balance and asymmetrical balance:
• Symmetrical – with equal space and wherein garden elements match this space.
• Asymmetrical – this is a mix of similar elements in one side and different elements on the other
Simplicity – this is a very common principle in most art and design. And if you’re just beginning to get the hang of landscaping, this is the best principle that you could follow. In this case, you can opt for simple elements like choosing few colors and plants as well as other decorations and lights.
