Landscape design is an important part in creating a yard with good flow and functionality. Planting random plants and trees around your yard is a good way to cause a landscape mess. Different plants have different water and sunlight requirements and they grow to different sizes. If you plant several plants close together without any idea they each get very big in size, you’re going to have some issues.
A yard becomes more valuable if it’s not only beautiful, but functional as well. Whether you incorporate a patio seating area with a fire or water feature, a recreational area or an outdoor kitchen, a functioning yard allows you to enjoy it more often. Figure out what you would like to do in your yard in order to create the perfect dream retreat!
A larger yard can be easier to deal with then you break it up into sections. Create a dining space, lounging area, outdoor BBQ, garden and lawn by adding borders or even a patio. Another idea is adding flower pots around a designated area to give a sense of being in a different “room.” You could even place different sized pots throughout your landscape. The different heights of pots and flower colors will liven up the space. Keep like colors together for great visual flow but get creative with patterns.
The perfect landscape starts with research and ideas. Landscape design is more than buying what you like, it is about incorporating what you like into a cohesive and functional space. A good landscape designer or architect can assist you in creating a beautiful yet functional landscape design that will do well in the hot Arizona climate. They will understand the growing conditions and select plants which thrive in the Arizona weather.
