Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including:living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what is commonly called gardening, the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating a beautiful environment within the landscape.natural elements such as land forms, terrain shape and elevation, or bodies of water; and abstract elements such as the weather and lighting conditions.Landscaping requires expertise in horticulture and artistic design.
Construction requires study and observation. It is not the same in different parts of the world. Landscaping varies according to different regions. Therefore, normally local natural experts are recommended if it is done for the first time. Understanding of the site is one of the chief essentials for successful landscaping. Different natural features like terrain, topography, soil qualities, prevailing winds, depth of the frost line, and the system of native flora and fauna must be taken into account. Sometimes the land is not fit for landscaping. In order to landscape it, the land must be reshaped. This reshaping of land is called grading.Removal of earth from the land is called cutting while when earth is added to the slope, it is called filling. Sometimes the grading process may involve removal of excessive waste (landfills), soil and rocks, so designers should take into account while in the planning stage.
Updating your home’s landscaping is a great way to increase the value of your property and create outdoor spaces for relaxing and entertaining. Whether you want to focus on your front yard, backyard or entire piece of land, there are many interesting options to consider. In the backyard you can create a space for entertaining friends and family complete with an outdoor kitchen, fire feature, pool and more, or you could create a lush garden that attracts wildlife and allows you to relax and reflect. In the front yard you could amp up curb appeal with a beautiful walkway or you could tear up your lawn in favor of an eco-friendly garden. Use the information below to start determining what you want in your new landscape.
The sweep of a curve lends a gracious air to a landscape. Your eye cannot help but follow it around. By laying out a plant bed or even a walkway in a strong, playful line you invite people to explore. And a curved flower bed combines color and shape to make a garden more enticing.My favorite way to lay out a curve in a garden is to use a 100 foot tape measure as a compass of sorts. I lay out a uniformly shaped curve from a central radius point. Then, using ‘marking’ paint (not spray paint!) or a line of powdered limestone, I mark the ground as I pivot around. The resulting gentle curve creates an even “disposition” to a landscape scene.
If you want to make a small outdoor space more interesting or appear larger, you can use an ancient Japanese design technique known as miegakure or ‘hide and reveal.’ This entails partially obscuring a view or features in a garden to create an illusion of distance. A half-hidden vista also encourages people to explore a space because the ‘mystery of the unseen’ is quite tantalizing. If you see only a partial view of a landscape you will invariably move forward to see what is ahead.You can hide parts of your garden by planting a leafy plant in a strategic spot, angling a walk or set of steps or locating a mounded plant bed in front of the view. You can even use shadows to darken an area which makes it appear to recede in the distance.
People move through space in the same way that water flows—it moves rapidly through a narrow channel and slows when it flows into a larger, wider pool. Similarly, people move faster in a narrow walk and slow down or pause when they arrive at an opening. Knowing this, you can use a design technique called, ‘pooling and channeling,’ to lead and direct people through a space.So, when you lay out a walk, think about the areas where you might want people to stop and enjoy the view. Widen the walk or create a larger stopping area here to encourage them to pause. You can even place some chairs here, telling them to stay a while.You can also widen the intersection where two walkways meet. Conversely, if you want people to move rapidly through a space, keep the walks fairly narrow.
In Japan, they use a design technique called ‘borrowed scenery’ to make a small outdoor space more interesting. They incorporate a view of a feature, large or small, that lies beyond the garden to carry the eye out. You can ‘borrow’ a view of a distant building, mountain or just a neighbor’s nearby pine tree or crab apple.In order to borrow scenery, you may have to keep a fence lower or a hedge trimmed to a certain height so you can see over them. Or you might have to trim back the branches of a wide spreading tree in order to reveal something beyond it. The Japanese have four categories of ‘borrowed scenery’ that relates to their location:Far – view of a distant mountain or similar, Near – a feature just beyond a fence, High – looking up above the trees, Low – something low or through an opening.
We all know the words ‘foreground’ and ‘background’ but have you heard of ‘middle ground?’ It separates the front from rear and is essential for a compelling view. This is called ‘The Principle of Three Depths’ and is used in Asian landscape painting. George Rowley, describes it in his book, Principles of Chinese Painting:
“The Chinese perfected the principle of three depths according to which spatial depth was marked by a foreground, a middle distance, and far distance, each parallel to the picture plane, so that the eyes leapt from one distance to the next through a void of space…”
A long view, therefore, is more interesting with some-thing placed in a central zone where the eye can rest. It also increases the perceived depth by providing a central reference point.
In a long perspective view, the lines of a walk seem to converge, the farther away they travel, the closer they become. This visual cue creates a sense of depth in any outdoor space. You can use this trick in a small outdoor space by slightly angling the lines of a walk inward, making it appear longer than it actually is. You can do this also with a plant bed or pergola. The key is to angle it in very slightly to appear as a natural perspective.You can apply this trick to plant beds that border a lawn. If the bed lines angle inward, the lawn between them appears a little deeper than it really is.
Long, straight views inexorably lead the eye and you cannot help but follow its line to the end. Therefore, grab the lengthiest straight line you can in an outdoor space and use it to its best advantage. A long view may involve looking diagonally across your yard or down a slope. Russell Page, the celebrated English landscape designer, wrote about creating long views in his book, The Education of a Gardener (published 1962):
“Where a site suggests to me a long straight axis, I try to keep this axis as narrow as I can, proportionately to the area I have to deal with….Such straight lines focus the attention and give direction to a garden design — you may interpret them in a hundred ways.”
A lookout is one of the most exciting areas in a landscape. Elevated locations such as the top of a slope, a rock or a bridge, can serve as a ‘prospect’ where we can stop and enjoy a view. It seems to be a universal urge to climb a hill and look out from a high point upon the scene below.
