Design a Garden with Creativity

By: lynter
When drawing up designs for your landscape, there are some things that you need to consider. You don't need to be a professional designer to create something beautiful, but the best designs all hold something in common: form, function and fluidity.

The form of landscape design encompasses things like the colors and textures that you wish to see, during each particular season of the year. It deals with making intelligent plant selection to ensure that there's always something blooming in such a way that it draws off attention to the plants that won't bloom until the next season. Your personal style and creativity should also show through in the particular form and design your landscape takes. If you're partial to Asian gardening, it should be noticeable.

The function part of landscape design focuses on things like visibility and ability to entertain comfortably in the yard. If you surround a gazebo with tall hedges, you're taking away the function of the design, as of course, it is meant to be seen. Function can also be determined by the success of any fruits, vegetables or herbs you may wish to grow.

The fluidity of landscape designs is something that's a little more difficult to define. Your design should flow in such a way that everything appears to be in the proper place. When you step into the yard, the quality of the fluidity of the landscaping is the thing that will make your friends and neighbors not leave without investigating each and every corner of the yard. Everything within the design should share a common theme, but it must do so without being too repetitive or uninteresting.

It may take a bit of practice to be able to really see and understand the points listed above in actual designs. Soon enough, you'll be able to differentiate between high and low quality work. Investigate other gardens in magazines and on the internet to see if you can pick out the ones that follow the above points. Indeed, if you're able to use the three "F's" of landscaping (form, function and fluidity) when trying to choose between landscape designs, you can rest assured that you'll be making a choice that will ensure a wonderful looking yard and all the compliments that go with it.

Summary:

You don't need to be a professional designer to create something beautiful, but the best landscape designs all hold something in common: form, function and fluidity. Discover the meaning behind the three "F's" of landscaping here.
