Synergy and Designing Your Landscape

In our last article we discussed the concept of synergy where landscape design is concerned.  What is synergy?  We are glad you asked…

Synergy and Landscape Design

call to action billbaord GreenservPro landscapingGoldSynergy literally means that all the parts combined are greater than the parts as a sum.  How this relates to landscape design is fairly straightforward.  Let’s say part of your property is down with an Old West Motif.  You’ve got a wagon wheel, and maybe a cow skull.  Perhaps you have an oxidized iron cactus or cowboy silhouette.  You also have rocks and desert plants.

Now, however, you want to do a landscape remodeling project and redo part of your landscape with a Chinese motif.  Well, problem solved.  If you know anything about the history of the west, you know that Chinese workers were part of that history.  So you can tie them together and have a lot of your guests get that delighted expression on their faces when they figure out your landscaping.  See, alone, the elements of Old West and China don’t work, until you tie them together.  And that is synergy in motion.  Whatever you go for design wise, make sure that you know the care and upkeep of it.

Landscape Design and Maintenance

Landscape remodeling means that whatever your new design is, you’re either going to have to take care of it, or hire a landscaping company to do it, otherwise, what starts out as a design ends up in overgrown and weed choked chaos.  One of the things that you have to think about is that you are not locked into your design.  There are no “landscape police’ out there, save for the odd HOA that’s super restrictive about what you can and cannot do to your property.

If you feel like adding something more, then you are free to do so. There are several ways by which you can make your garden more interesting. You can use  rock sculpture or fountain. But always ask for assistance when you need it from a landscape design service.

Principles of landscape design include a fair amount of synergy, and knowing what works as well as what doesn’t.  What makes a memorable landscape is the little touches.  A garden can be made beautiful with the help of grass, wood, flowers, rocks, ponds, and fountains. If you want to make your garden more natural, you should go for fewer rocks and more plants. However, if you do not want to spend a lot of money and time on maintenance, then you should go for hardscape or rock gardens.. Whatever you choose,wen it works it really works, and when it doesn’t well, it is more infamous than great.

The Disneyland Hotel is a prime example of this.  When the Disneyland Hotel went through landscape remodeling because the park expanded, it took away a lot of the charm, leaving a lot of fans of the place disillusioned.  You obviously don’t want your own landscape remodeling to illicit a similar response.  To be fair, you’re also most not dealing with 10 acres, but still the principles are applicable even for a smaller property.

What is Your Style: Know This Before You Get Landscape Design

Your taste should always be considered when you’re consulting with a landscape design service.  If you love the cultures of Asia, then an Old West motif would not fit your needs.  Or if you love desert landscape, then an English country garden wouldn’t be right either.  Whatever your design, make sure you have accessibility in mind too.

Accessibility includes things that link elements of your landscape remodeling project together such as pathways, and elements that serve as a bridge.

So, start getting an idea in your mind of what you want to see.  Then get on the phone to a landscape design service to make it all come alive for you.
