Landscaping design is a fine art and an artistic specialty, practised mainly by landscape artists, incorporating both art and science, combining nature and urban culture. As a modern professional technique, landscaping design combines garden planning with architecture, exterior design, building and construction and modern technology blending the art with the high-tech. A landscaping design professional’s goal is to develop an unified mix of organic and built surroundings that enhances the look of their building, complementing the existing structure envelope and complementing the architecture of the site. They might function individually or in collaboration with landscape architects, property managers or constructing specialists.
The primary concepts of landscaping design are established by a variety of aspects such as the scale of the planned project, the materials to be used, the scale of the proposed views and how they will relate to existing structures and facilities, the scale of the surrounding area and local climate. As an example, a small yard will not require as much space as a big lawn; conversely, one should not make use of extremely high fences to protect a park in a small village. Similarly, a landscape with trees and plants on a steep hillside will look out of place compared to a flat lawn. Local climate is also a very important factor in establishing the type of plants and flowers to be used, the planting height and the type of soil to be used.
Some landscaping design concepts include utilizing the same colours throughout the lawn and planting beds, developing interplay between plants, using plants that can be quickly replenished and consideration of local plant communities to create a gorgeous, healthy and sustainable result. The primary objective is to develop a harmony among all the aspects of design, using plants and materials that are environmentally friendly, low-maintenance and can withstand the climate and the environmental elements. These concepts are typically incorporated into the architectural plans of the overall landscape project.
Landscaping Design And Vertical Gardens
Vertical Gardens can be created both indoors and outdoors, so long as the “conditions are right”. This means that there has to be natural light, which is the most ideal. In situations where it is not possible for natural light to filter indoors, artificial lights will be installed so that plants are still able to flourish.
To develop an environment-friendly wall that would have impact, landscaping designers need to install a vertical garden that is at least 1.5 m by 2m in size. There are several vertical garden systems available. We recommend the “Green Jacket” system as it is a modular system, and is easy to keep. The grid-like planting system is installed onto the wall. It can take from half a day to a complete day for installment.
