Landscaping design is a fine art and an imaginative job, practiced mainly by landscape architects, incorporating both art and technique, combining nature and urban lifestyle. As a modern professional technique, landscaping design integrates garden planning with architecture, exterior design, construction and state-of-the-art techniques blending the art with the technical. A landscaping design expert’s purpose is to produce a harmonious mix of organic and built landscapes that improves the look and feel of their building, matching the existing structure envelope and complementing the architecture of the site. They may work separately or in collaboration with landscape architects, property managers or building specialists.
The main concepts of landscaping design are determined by a variety of factors such as the scale of the planned project, the elements 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 area as a large lawn; on the other hand, one should not use extremely high fences to protect a park in a small village. Likewise, a landscape with trees and plants on a high hillside will look out of place compared to a flat yard. 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 principles include using the same colours throughout the lawn and planting beds, creating interplay between plants, using plants that can be effortlessly replenished and consideration of local plant communities to create a beautiful, healthy and sustainable outcome. The primary objective is to produce a harmony among all the facets of design, using plants and materials 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 overall landscape project.
Landscaping Design And Vertical Gardens
Vertical Gardens can be developed both indoors and outdoors, so long as the “conditions are right”. This implies 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 certainly be set up 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 dimension. There are several vertical garden systems available. We recommend the “Green Jacket” system as it is a modular system, and is simple to keep. The grid-like planting system is placed onto the wall. It can take from half a day to a complete day for installation.
