Why Does Landscape Design Matter?

Landscape design is beneficial not onl y in boosting the value of a property but also in enhancing the quality of life. It allows you to personalize your outdoor living space and turn it into your recreational spot.

S pending time outdoors, being near water, and being surrounded by greenery ca n lift your mood in an instant. Bringing nature will make your home a perfect place for relaxing

But there’s a lot that goes into this project. A careful evaluation of your lot is necessary to identify which installations are ideal. A landscaping projec t should enhance and preserve what your property already has

How to Make a Perfect Landscape Design

Landscape design involves arranging different elements to achieve your desired outdoor living space. These elements include hardscapes (e.g. fireplace and pavers) and softscapes (e.g. water features and plants).

At Pacific Outdoor Living, our profession al landscape designers guide you from the initial consultation to implementation and maintenance. We also assist you in securing necessary permits for building and construction.

A great landscape design takes balance and harmony into account.
  • Balance distributes components across the landscape equally. It could be symmetrical where features on both sides mirror each other or asymmetrical, which use s different elements, but overall bears the same weight. One side of your yard can feature a large promin ent installation, while the other side can show smaller, but equally beautiful installations.
  • Harmony or unity ensures your landscape design is cohes ive or well - put together. Even if you’re including contrasting colors or textures, harmony will make them look perfect together. Elements complement each other to create a visually - satisfying experience.
Regardless of the size of your yard, you can make it look and feel more alive. Our team at Pacific Outdoor Living can customize your outdoor space to fit your unique style as a Los Angeles homeowner.

Exploring the Basic Landscape Design Elements

Your landscape is crafted to meet y our unique lifestyle and preferences. These are some of the guidelines we keep in mind as we recommend a design for your yard.
  • Lines. Lines add intrigue and impact how users experience your garden. They dictate the flow of movement and direction in your outdoor spaces. Picture pathways and hedges. Lines can be straight and appear forceful or they can also be curved, giving off a gentle feel. Both hardscapes and softscapes can use straight or curved lines. If you want users to take their time exploring a path, curved lines are more suitable. And if you want to immediately direct them to a specific spot, stra ight lines are better suited for the job
  • Colors. Colors draw attention to your yard. But they should be carefully planned so they don’t clash or be come overbearing. Warm colors, such as reds and oranges, are bright so they must be arranged with care. You can use them to draw emphasis on a landscape fea ture. But to ease transitions, it helps to place lighter shades at the front. Cool colors, such as b lues, make for a relaxing view. They’re also beneficial in making a place look bigger than it is, so they work great for small yards.
  • Texture. Texture speaks of the look and feel of surfaces. Surfaces could be soft, smooth, rough, and heavy. Adding diffe rent textures to your yard will create a sense of balance and interest. You can complement soft leaves and flowers with textured plants. Or inst all hardscapes next to a water feature
  • Form. Form refers to the overall height and shape of your yard. Your outdoor living space could take a free form or it could be definite - round, triangular, or spreading. Start with your personality in deciding w hich form you would like your landscape to take. Even if you want it formal or relaxed, the result will give off a specific mood. That mood should resonate with you.
  • Size. The size or scale of your yard should complement the size of your property or home. Whether you prefer elements to be closer to or farther from each other, the overall look should be cohesive. Sm ooth flow and transition between elements make for a great landscape design
