How to Plan the Perfect Landscape Design

Are you interested in improving your home’s exterior space in southeast Michigan? Below, we’ve outlined the best ways to design your ideal yard.

Focus on Key Elements

The experts recommend keeping certain factors in mind when designing your outdoor spaces. Planning the design goes beyond what you think looks visually appealing. You should also consider the following elements:

Visual Balance

The colors, textures, and heights of the plants and other features of your lawn all contribute to visual balance. Use these elements to draw the eye while avoiding overwhelming visitors with too many features.

Careful Placement of Plants

Selecting the right plants is essential. Some plants may thrive only in certain areas. As a first step, you can research which plants flourish based on their needed exposure to sun and shade, soil moisture content and other factors.

The Use of Hardscaping

Hardscaping involves installing features like paver patios or concrete walkways. The selection and placement of these features can accentuate your overall design.

Planting for Year-Round Enjoyment

Your front and backyard landscapes should look great all year long, not just in the spring, summer and fall. Fortunately, you can select plants that look great in the winter such as evergreens and ornamental grasses.

Maintenance Requirements

Plants and outdoor features require regular care and maintenance to keep looking great. Plants may need weekly attention. In contrast, features like foundations or decking may only require a single maintenance appointment every year.

Your Property’s Appearance

Landscape design should enhance the look of your home. Consider the property features you want to highlight when planning your design. Including your home in your landscape design will deliver the most harmonious look plus stronger curb appeal and ideal aesthetics.
