The Basics of Landscape Architecture
A landscape architect is a professional who is charged with redesigning an entire outdoor area, which encompasses a wide array of services. Among other things, landscape architecture includes assessing, analyzing, and doing an inventory of the site, along with making sure that construction is in keeping with all pertinent codes and ordinances. It also covers grading and regrading, planting design, and stormwater management. Today, landscape architects also work to create environments that are sustainable.

Unique Landscape Features
A well-manicured lawn and carefully trimmed trees can certainly make your property look great, but you can really make a statement by injecting a bit of personality and character into your landscape design. Here are a few unique landscape features our landscape architects offer that can help your home or business stand out:
- Landscape Lighting – A few well-placed lights can have a dramatic effect on your overall landscape architecture. Try adding accent lighting to create a compelling landscape lighting design.
- Water Features – Waterfalls, fish ponds, and water fountains can add a relaxing air to your landscape design. Try to incorporate natural stone and hardscaping elements with your water features for a more natural look.
- Outdoor Speakers – Imagine hosting a BBQ or pool party and listening to your favorite tunes anywhere in your yard. You can find outdoor speakers that look like rocks to seamlessly blend music into the landscape.
Elements of Good Landscape Design
If you want your landscape to make a great first impression (and a great second impression, and third impression, and fourth, etc.) you need to make sure that your yard adheres to some of the general characteristics of “good” landscape design. But keep in mind that these are general guidelines and not strict rules. At the end of the day, when you put pen to paper, the most important thing is that you love the way the landscape architecture looks.
- Place trees and shrubs with colored foliage in a line running east to west so that they can benefit from the beautiful, natural backlighting of a rising or setting sun
- Utilize different plants and shrubs to complement and contrast differences in texture
- Try to stick with only a few repeating shapes or patterns to give your landscape a more cohesive look and flow
- Speaking of flow, try to avoid using too many rigid, geometric shapes to give your landscape a more natural and flowy appearance
