Expert Tips for Landscape Design


  1. When you tackle your own landscape design, try to think on different levels (including the broader picture), and never forget about important details.

  2. Remember that landscape design is not just about landscaping with plants. Landscape design also involves ‘hardscaping’ – and establishing pathways, building walls and fences, and creating solid features.


  3. Practical aspects of landscape design include ensuring the soil in your garden is well prepared and that lighting is provided for both safety and security.


  4. In a good landscape design views and focal points will direct the eye to different elements and features in the garden such as unique plants or decorative hardscape items like trellises.


  5. A metal fence border will add instant elegance to your landscape design and serve to keep out animal pests.


  6. A garden trellis is a great accessory for climbing flowers, and even vegetables, and it will compliment your landscape design.

  7. A beautiful plant stand or flower box is a great landscape design accessory that will add style to your deck, porch railing or mount it to a wall.


  8. Color is important in any landscape design – keep your decorative hardscape items neutral or metallic colors so they blend nicely with your brilliant plant and flower arrangements.
