Planting Design: 3 Tips For Your Garden

October 9, 2019

Planting Design

Homeowners realize that the overall design and layout of a landscape has a huge impact on the overall value of the home. A big part of adding an element of beauty can be accomplished through expert landscape design. Utah has a unique landscape all to its own, and accenting both the area where you live and combining these elements is a great strategy. Check out these cool ideas for planting design.

Often, the first impression of your home is made upon seeing the outside. Further, no matter how the inside of your home looks, your landscape gives guests an idea of what to expect before walking through your front door.

Here, we’ll explore the basics of functional and aesthetically pleasing landscape design Utah.

Sensibility

Though you want your landscape to be beautiful and inspiring, it also needs an element of sensibility. During your initial planning phase, ensure that you have a clear idea of how all of your landscape elements work together.

Things to consider are functional fire-pits, pathways, and plants. Note that you can’t have a path that goes nowhere. So, plan as to how a path would complement the overall landscape speaks to a sensible approach. Additionally, having a fire-pit with no seating area or deck also wouldn’t make sense, so ensure you have thought of all the steps before breaking ground.

Plants, garden beds, and florals should also be in specific areas that are easily distinguishable and not simply planted or placed at random. Make sure that your landscape functions, but also makes sense.

Desert Scapes

When it comes to landscape design, Utah has a rugged natural beauty about it. A desert-scape is a great way to accent the surrounding natural beauty of your home. This element of “hardscaping” might include innovative placements of natural stone walkways, red-rock porches, glazed patios, and the like.

As with any hard-scape, these elements should always be placed and constructed in the beginning stage of planning. All additional details should come together later after any construction is completed, and debris removed from the property.

It all comes back to sensibility. Without hard-scapes in place first, your overall landscape design won’t make much sense.

Choosing the Greenery

You can add so much beauty by adding the element of nature into your design. Native shrubbery, trees, plants, and floral beauty, add value, and a sense of personality to the overall landscape.

When choosing your perfect plants, ensure you’re aware of what you are planting and, more specifically, where you’re putting them. The last thing you would want is a lot of tall trees and shrubs right in front of your windows.

Take precise measurements so that either you or your landscape construction company can purchase the right greenery. More significant elements can still be incorporated, of course, but it is critical to ensure that no large items clash with the surrounding landscape. Additionally, consider the lighting—both natural light and artificial—before planting.

Sit Back and Enjoy!

Now that you have the fundamentals in mind consider showing your plans to a professional landscaping company. Planting design and landscaping is cool, right?
