Landscape design cannot be described in a few simple terms. There are several different landscape design architecture jobs that one can choose to focus on: Land Development, Site Planning, Urban/Town Planning, Regional Landscape Planning, Park and Recreation Planning, Land Development Planning, Ecological Planning and Development, Historical Preservation and Reclamation, and Social and Behavioral Aspects to Landscape Planning. With the scope of the profession so broad and the projects so varied, landscape architecture is sure to encompass any aspect of landscape design.
A decorative garden is one that focuses on plants that will have the largest visual impact per square foot without any consideration for edible, or in some other way functional plant. A functional garden on the other hand focuses on maximizing the yield per square foot of plants that can be eaten or used in some other productive manner (i.e. Aloe Vera for burns). Finally, a hybrid garden focuses on a cross between these two different concepts. It tries to produce a high yield of useful plants, while at the same time creating visual interest within the garden space.
One similarity when landscaping the front compared with the backyard is that in general it is the simpler designs that work the best. In fact having a simple design is even more essential in the front yard than in the back. Not only will this help to make your house more inviting but it will also keep the cost down - you dont want to be spending a lot of money on landscaping a yard that you will hardly ever use other than to walk to your front door. That said, we dont want to play down the importance of a good front yard design either. Place attractive and colorful items in your front yard, but dont over do it.
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.
* 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.
