What Makes A Well-Designed Residential Landscape?

Updated: Jul 31, 2022

Heritage Landscape Dallas Can Create A Unique Landscape Design For Your Home

Your home's property is a special place that sends a message about your personality, your tastes and your goals. A good landscape design can create the atmosphere that serves at a backdrop to your life and your activities. At Heritage Landscape Dallas in Dallas TX, we work to highlight the features of each residential property to help it look its most inviting.

Analysis of the Property Is the First Step in Creating A Design

Evaluating the property is critical to creating the right design for visual impact. The size of the property, the way water moves on the property, sun exposure, wind, soil type, site lines and view are all taken into consideration when creating the design. Noise, wildlife and neighboring foliage also factor into the design. Even what’s under the landscape, such as subsoil and buried utility equipment may have a bearing on the design.

Elements of Good Landscape Design

A good landscape design will be so harmonious and complete that it is often not easy to separate the individual elements that go into it. But a design must include concepts such as balance, rhythm, proportion, line, unity and simplicity. A focal point for the design is also critical to its success. The natural aspects of the property must be taken into consideration, as well as any problems that may occur as a result of flooding, erosion, soil condition and potential weather effects.

Special Features Can Make A Big Impact

You may desire a special feature for your property, such as a pond, gazebo, rock garden or other element. These must be carefully placed into the desire to create the right effect and ensure the design’s visual unity. Placing the element may require careful preparation of the site where the element is to be located, for maximum impact and to fit into the overall design effectively.

Designs Must Serve Each Property Owner’s Individual Needs

It’s not only the property itself that determines the design. The home’s owner tends to have a special feel what their property needs to enhance its most attractive features. You may want outdoor entertainment areas, quiet places to contemplate, a refuge for nature’s creatures or some other special element that makes the design your own. We can help you create a workable design that satisfies the needs of the landscape and your own individual preferences.
