Why is landscaping important for my Brigham City home?

Landscaping is the first element of your home that people notice, and it can make or break a first impression. If you’re looking to list your house for sale, curb appeal is critical to get the best price on the real estate market. Our professional landscape designers will help boost your curb appeal with beautiful foliage and water features to create a tranquil oasis in your yard.

What is meant by “balance” in landscaping?

Balance is a key component in anything meant to be visually appealing. You want your landscape to feel balanced, in that every element comes together naturally to draw your eye without it feeling forced or cluttered. When ambitious do-it-yourselfers try to do their landscaping, we often see unharmonious designs as a result.

Every plant must be selected and placed carefully so as not to compete with other plants in the area for necessary sunlight, water, and space. Every color and pattern should be weighed in comparison to your overall design scheme. Remember, you can always ask us to add more decorative elements later if you feel something is lacking in your décor.

What’s the difference between a landscaper and a gardener?

While many people use the terms “landscaper” and “gardener” almost interchangeably, the reality is these are two distinct professions. A professional landscaper incorporates various natural and human-made elements into a landscape to create a harmonious space. These elements may include botanical elements such as plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, and other flora, or decorative hardscaping elements such as pathways, water features, or concrete edge curbing. A professional gardener is usually involved in maintaining the botanical elements found in a landscape. A gardener possesses a fount of knowledge about soil ecology, plant life, water drainage, and even pest infestations and how to recognize them. A gardener likely has a college degree in horticulture or botany, while a landscaper may have a degree or license in landscape architecture and design.

What should I expect from a landscape designer?

A landscape designer may or may not have a formal college education. What they lack in formalized training, however, they may make up for in spades of bona fide experience. Before you meet with a landscape designer, you should have a landscaping budget in mind. Make a list of desirable landscaping elements in your order of preference, so the landscape designer will have a better understanding of what you’re looking to spend and prioritize. Remember, a landscape designer possesses many skills, but being a mind reader is likely not one of them. To get the most from your landscape design, you’ll need to do a bit of research and convey what landscaping elements you like and dislike. Lone Pine Landscape would be happy to meet with you and give you a free estimate based on our consultation!

What are the principles of good landscape design?

As previously mentioned, unity and balance are essential elements for effective landscape design. Everything in your landscape, from the plants and shrubs to the landscape lighting and water features, should come together in harmony without feeling forced or constrained. Boundaries can be set almost imperceptibly, making proper use of pathways to separate key elements while making them still feel interconnected. Repetitive elements are sometimes used to bring that sense of cohesion, whether it be in the form of repeating colors, patterns, or plant species. Raised beds and concrete edge curbing can help define areas in your backyard or garden landscaping to make them more visually appealing. An eye for design and proportion is required to plant various flora without generating a sense of overcrowding, no matter how big or small the space.
