In general when you are landscaping a front yard you will have to use different principles and plant selection than you would in the backyard. This is because you are designing for a different purpose for the two different yards. The back garden is very much a place of solitude where you can relax and enjoy yourself in a personal space. In the front you are trying to create an inviting atmosphere, and one through which people can easily access your house. Because of this you will have to think slightly differently when creating your landscape design.
First, a person needs to consider what the purpose of the garden is: Decorative, functional, or a hybrid.
* Small space means you must make choices. You can not develop every plant you love. You can not on impulse see a plant and purchase it just hoping there will be space for it.
Landscape architecture is the design of outdoor space using the compositional elements of vegetation, landform, water and structures such as walls, seating, lighting, steps etc. The U.S.A. is a large country with varied geographical resources presenting opportunities to landscape architects to improvise with and accommodate these resources. Even though there is minimal threat to natural habitats the growing urbanization and moving population is encouraging construction and designing of neighborhood parks or playgrounds. These are relatively small but of intensive use for education, health and recreation purposes.
Now that you understand what landscape design architecture is, what a landscape architect does and how they became qualified to do so, its your turn to get started in the profession of landscape and design architecture. Its really a wonderful field for career considerations with tremendous opportunity and positive outlook in the future. Take charge for your career and start today!
