Landscape design is an art form. It takes a keen eye to look at an area and envision what it could look like with some careful planning. Some important factors to be aware of when designing a landscape are site conditions, clients needs and wants, budget, and aesthetics. The point of landscape design is to improve the look of the space. A good landscape designer understands the elements of nature and construction and blends them together accordingly.
When designing a landscape, it is important to know how the space will be used in the short-term, as well as the long-term. This helps to determine what elements will be used and how they will be implemented. A good design delivers, exactly what the client wants, nothing more, nothing less. Some designers draw up beautiful and elaborate designs, but the designs could never be implemented to meet the budget. We always consider your needs, style, and budget when designing your landscape. We want to deliver exactly what you want, without trying to sell you on elaborate designs you don’t need or want. There are many types of landscaping, and we can help you decide which style is for you.
Designing in general starts with an idea. An idea that will grow and ultimately become a reality. To be a good landscape designer, means to have good ideas, as well as good communication skills to convey your idea to the customer. You may already have an idea of how you would like your space designed. Great! We can discuss your ideas and create a design that incorporates your ideas. If you don’t have any ideas, we can help you to come up with a beautiful design that you will love, and will compliment your style.
A very important aspect to any landscape design is balance. Overloading a space with to much hardscaping or dense plantings can work against the idea of the design. To obtain good balance, you must first take into account the area. Take a look at how much space is available to design. Then make a list of elements that you would like incorporated into the design. If there is limited space, the list may have to be prioritized so that the most important elements are included, while the less important elements can be left out. This allows for a balanced design that isn’t to busy.
Another important aspect to landscape design is flow. A good design flows from one area to the next. Whether the style is formal or natural, the design should flow to create a consistent form throughout the entire space. There are many ways to create good flow to a design, and this should be discussed prior to the design stage to ensure perfect execution of the landscape design in the construction stage.
Arizona’s landscape is beautiful, but to some, it’s not very appealing. A more natural, native landscape design is much more sustainable, environmentally conscious, and can be very beautiful. But some people just do not like the look of a desert landscape and would rather have a more tropical look. In either case we can come up with a beautiful design that fits any style and budget.
If you need a landscape design for your Arizona home, you need an experienced, knowledgable, and friendly designer to work with. We love what we do, and look forward to helping each and every one of our customers. Give us a call today, you’ll be happy you did.
