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.
Whatever style of garden is being constructed one thing that is important to keep in mind is that in order to create a strong visual appeal, it is better to stagger plants of different heights and colors around one another. This creates texture and dimension to a garden space that can make it seem larger than it really is.
From city council rooms to lecture halls, there is an increasing demand today for landscape architecture jobs. More than any of the other major environmental design professions, landscape design architecture is a profession that is on the move. Landscape design architecture by definition is no less than the art and science of analysis, planning design, management, preservation and rehabilitation of the land. In providing well-managed design and development plans, landscape architects offer an essential array of services and expertise that reduces costs and adds long-term value to a project.
Using a landscaper to design your yard can definitely up your propertys value. Most landscape professionals have a keen eye, and can ensure that various elements come together nicely or harmonize with your homes dominant architectural style. For example, a landscape expert may opt to use free-form landscape to provide visually appealing contrast to a symmetrical house facade. A professional landscaper also will not just plop down on the ground decorative hardscapes like boulders and rocks without consideration of the landscape topography and direction.
Enlisting the services of a landscape professional can create pockets of interest for the eyes of home dwellers and guests. If you are keen on using a landscaper to design your yard and create a garden that has a very natural, informal look and relaxing ambience, it may be worth the investment but beforehand, think about how you really want to use or benefit from your outdoor space.
