residential landscape design

The beauty of a home isn’t always about your indoor area. Making your outdoor area attractive can be done by having a great landscape design for your area. Landscaping can also be done to increase the value of your property. This may include removing some plants or planting of trees. Landscaping also includes shrubs, hedges, bushes, and grasses. The plants play an important role in a landscape design because of their beauty. They also provide privacy to any home, and may also protect it from extreme weather.

With a landscape design that suits your style, you can always look forward to coming home. After a tiring day from work, school or play, your mind can rest and be at peace. With your landscape design coming to life, you are sure to release the day’s tension even before coming into your home. Invested time and asset will not go to waste with your new outdoor living space.

You can expect excellent results when residential landscape designs come with proper planning. Not only will you expect an attractive living area for you and your family, you can also expect an increase in your property’s value. A well-planned landscape design includes harmony, aesthetics, and functionality, merging symmetry and unity during the planning stage.

Making a residential landscape design can be challenging. Hiring a professional will make your landscape planning design produce good results. Getting a landscape designer or architect will also make sure that your design stays within your budget.

Basic Landscape Design Principles


One of the important factors of a good design is proportion. It takes into account the relationship between elements within the landscape in terms of size, length, and height. It also involves proper planning for the future.

Both plant and non-plant material proportions may change over time. If you want to make a certain shrub grow bigger instead of cutting it so it becomes a focal point of your garden. You may also opt to place large furniture like statues to compliment the proportion.

Just like in other things, change is unavoidable. Your landscape design should also be acceptable to change. Changes over the years may be necessary, so keep an open mind when it comes to your landscape design. You may also feel the need to experiment with different landscape designs.


Unity is also another factor in a residential landscape design. Repetitiveness and consistency with used materials produce unity in elements. It may be a color scheme or an overall theme you are trying to achieve, will produce unity in elements.

Texture, colors, height and size should be combined and blend naturally. By choosing plant materials that have the same physical landscape may achieve unity. Plants with the same shape planted in the same distance from each other is also a good way to achieve unity


Color is another factor in the landscape design. As the life of the entire landscape, it determines the mood and feel of the outdoor space. Yellow, red and orange stand out while giving off warmth. Blue, green and purple are great as background because they make a cooler setting. Mixing different colors and textures will create a great combination of colors. To highlight your showcase areas, using bright and bold colors will help. In this process, a design software is helpful. This serves as our virtual carbon copy of your home. Your dream landscape will come to life while making sure it fits your house.


Lines provide movement through the entire landscape. Curved or circular lines display a smooth, flowing feel. Straight lines add a powerful structure of elements in the landscape.

For sharp edges around your landscape, you can soften it by using shrubs or thick plants with lots of texture.

How We Plan Your Landscape Design

  • At any project, it is important to know how big or how small to work with. We will measure your desired space, and take note of your access areas. Doors, paths, and driveways should be kept clear to avoid blockage. Your power circuits and water mains should be noted too.
  • Determine the purpose of this project. Is it to be used for recreation or relaxation? Based on your needs, we will come up with ideas on what features to put in your landscape design.
  • Choose your theme. You can browse through our wide range of landscape themes if you don’t have any specific theme in mind as of the moment. Based on your preference, we can incorporate Japanese, Mediterranean, ecological or tropical theme as you wish. We will consider your desired budget when adding features to your landscape design.
  • In choosing the right plants and flowers for your landscape, we consider the amount of shade and sunlight your space provides. We will also look at how much maintenance they need, and how much you are willing to keep them up. We will also calculate the plant’s growth to make sure they don’t block any doorway or windows.
  • For steep areas, we will consider outing a retaining wall for your best interest.
  • Depending on your wish list and budget, we will incorporate residential architecture like a patio, pool, or gazebo. You may also like to add a water feature like a pond or waterfall. We will include them in your landscape design so all the materials are included in the cost of creating your dream landscape.
  • Finally, it is time to design and lay out your dream landscape! We will help you envision what your ideal landscape looks like. The color of the flowers and the materials to be used are all in the landscape design layout. We will make sure the design complements your house and the surrounding areas.
