Landscape Design - Well Balanced Home Landscaping

 


Article by: Steve Boulden

Balance is a principle of all art forms, design, , How to Grow Hydrangeas and even landscape , How to Grow Hydrangeas design. It implies a sense of equality. And while there may be just a little more to it, this is how I explain it to make it easier for first timers and do it yourselfers to understand.

A garden, , Bonsai Trees For Sale: What Are Your Options? landscape, , Hydroponics Gardening - An Introduction To Hydroponics Gardening For Beginners (part 13) Oxygen or any form of equal proportions would naturally feel and look balanced. However, most gardens , 'Northern Encore' Tree Rose and landscapes , 6 Indoor Plants That Love The Dark: A Tip From The Garden Center Nursery are not exact or symmetrical in shape and form. They're asymmetrical and abstract in form and are often without any natural , How Vacuum Formed Molds Are Made balance of their own. So landscaping , How Vacuum Formed Molds Are Made often relies on other elements to create balance and harmony through unity.

Many times, a lack of balance is directly related to a lack of repetition. Repeating alike elements such as plants , Super Foods from Home Vegetable Gardens or rocks throughout the landscape , 6 Indoor Plants That Love The Dark: A Tip From The Garden Center Nursery will help unify different areas to each other. As little as one repeated matching plant , How to Choose Between Goldfish and KOI group, color, , Texas Drought Well Documented in the Past piece of decor, , Getting the Best Price for Your Home Includes Landscaping for Curb Appeal or hardscape can accomplish this.

A lack of balance is also created by placing too many or all non matching elements throughout a landscape , and Outdoor Lighting - Less is Definitely More design. This can sometimes seem cluttered and unkept when it grows , The Most Popular Flower Fragrances in. In the beginning of your design, , Tips On Growing And Caring For Orchids plan , Protecting your Garden Pond from Pesky Predators for less, place , Wooden Garden Benches just a few matching plant , The Most Popular Flower Fragrances groups throughout the garden, , Sheltering Butterflies in Your and keep decor , Bird Feeders: Look Who's Coming to Dinner matching and to a minimum. You can add more later.

So many of the questions that I receive about landscape , Wicker Patio Furniture or Teak Patio Furniture is Great in a Gazebo design deal with the shape of a design , Super Foods from Home Vegetable Gardens . Shape is unique to each design , The Care of Cattleya Orchids and will ultimately follow all necessary paths , 3 Hillside Landscaping Tips For A Beautiful And Healthy Garden and your visions. However, any shape or form can be filled with elements and still be either dull, void, loud, cluttered, and unbalanced. Balance isn't necessarily dependant on shape. It can be but generally it's not. So don't get too hung up on trying to even things out entirely by shape.

Landscape , Mulchers - A Buying Guide design , Hedge Trimmers Are Tools Not Toys is an art form and so it deals with "all" the same principles that other art forms use. Repetition, unity, and balance are all principles of art that go hand in hand with each other.

Architects use repetition in design , Patio – Expanding Your Home Outdoors by making doors, , Forcing Bulbs for In Bloom: Even 'Brownthumbers' Can Do It windows, , Teak Furniture for Your Garden: Add a Touch of Something Spectacular fixtures, trims, etc. the same sizes, shapes, and styles.

It would be uncomfortable and chaotic.

And so it's the same with landscape , Fabric Hammocks design.

In order to create balance, appeal, and even comfort in a landscape , Pond Supplies - A Must For Your Pond that is lacking, we need to create some form of consistent repetition. As little as one matching element placed on opposites can create a sense of unity and consistency.

It's easiest and most often created in the softscape (plants, ornaments, lawn, , Protecting your Garden Pond from Pesky Predators decor, , How to Grow Hydrangeas etc.). However, it should be considered in the hardscape (walks, driveways, necessities, fences, walls, , How to Choose Between Goldfish and KOI raised beds, , The Most Popular Flower Fragrances boundaries, etc.) of your drawn design , Wicker Patio Furniture or Teak Patio Furniture is Great in a Gazebo plan.
