In this post, we’ll be talking about landscaping and all the various types of landscaping that you can utilise to beautify your residential or commercial property.
What is Landscaping?
Landscaping is the modification of the visible features of an area of land such as flora or fauna, ornamental plants, terrain fixing and structures like decks, planters, patio covers etc.
There are different types of landscaping to choose from to beautify your space.
Factors To Be Considered When Choosing a Type of Landscape
— Weather Conditions
You should consider the kind of conditions that surround the land you want to use. Is it humidified or arid etc.
— Purpose of Landscaping
The purpose of landscaping should be put into consideration before construction. Is it a children-filled or children-free environment? Do you have pets?
These questions need to be answered before deciding on a style.
— Required Maintenance Time
The amount of time it’ll take for you to maintain your yard should be considered. Do you love tending to your yard yourself or would you need professionals like Lawnworx to do a perfect job for you?
— Reflection of Personal Style
A style that reflects your personality and taste should be considered.
Types of Landscaping
— English Garden Style
In this style, the landscaping is done in a way that complements the architectural style of the home. Beautiful shrubs and perennials are used with other decorative elements. It is usually high maintenance with a high water requirement.
— Oriental Landscape
Here, distinctive perspectives and angles are created using plants, water and rocks. Evergreen plants like junipers and topiary are used. It is high maintenance and requires water features like fountains.
— Woodland Landscape
For someone with very little time to spend on maintenance, this would be a great choice. This style mimics the natural way plants and fauna in general grow in wooded areas.
— Formal Landscape
In this style, lots of geometric patterns and orderly straight lined plant arrangements are used instead of the random pattern in other styles. Lots of pruning is seen and it usually requires high maintenance and care.
— Informal Landscape
This style utilizes curved edged beds alongside random plant placements. It is a good choice in homes with playing children or pets. It involves less maintenance and is a preference for most homeowners
— Cottage Garden
This style is sometimes considered as old-style although it’s beauty is something exceptional. Magnolia trees, hydrangeas, roses, and lilacs can be used to create this look. Herbs like sweet bay, rosemary, blueberries, and figs can be used to enhance it too. It is high maintenance and requires lots of water.
