Landscaping design is a fine art and an artistic career, practiced mainly by landscape artists, incorporating both art and technology, integrating nature and urban culture. As an innovative professional process, landscaping design combines garden planning with architecture, exterior design, building and construction and state-of-the-art techniques blending the art with the technological. A landscaping design professional’s aim is to create an unified mix of organic and built landscapes that enhances the feel and look of their building, complementing the existing building envelope and complementing the style of the site. They might work independently or in partnership with landscape designers, property managers or constructing specialists.
The major ideas of landscaping design are identified by a range of variables such as the scale of the planned project, the building 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. For example, a small yard will not require as much space as a large lawn; on the other hand, one should not make use of extremely high fences to protect a park in a small town. Likewise, a landscape with trees and bushes on a high hillside will look out of place compared to a flat yard. Local climate is also a very important factor in determining the type of plants and flowers to be used, the planting height and the type of soil to be used.
Some landscaping design principles include utilizing the same colours throughout the lawn and planting beds, making interplay between plants, using plants that can be quickly replenished and consideration of local plant communities to create a beautiful, healthy and sustainable result. The primary objective is to develop a harmony among all the aspects of design, using plants and components that are environmentally friendly, low-maintenance and can withstand the weather and the environmental elements. These principles are often incorporated into the architectural plans of the general landscape project.
Landscaping Design And Vertical Gardens
Vertical Gardens can be developed both indoors and outdoors, as long as the “conditions are right”. This implies that there needs to be natural light, which is the most ideal. In circumstances where it is not possible for natural light to filter indoors, artificial lights will certainly be mounted to ensure that plants are still able to flourish.
To develop an eco-friendly wall that would have impact, landscaping designers need to install a vertical garden that is at least 1.5 m by 2m in dimension. There are several vertical garden systems available. We recommend the “Green Jacket” system as it is a modular system, and is easy to maintain. The grid-like planting system is mounted onto the wall. It can take from half a day to a complete day for installation.
