The Design Principle of Unity in Gardening and Landscaping

 


Article by: Sandra Wilson

A principle of all art is unity. This means that each piece of art has one meaning. Creating landscaping , Getting Rid of Garden Pests with Less Chemicals or a flower garden , Lose That Ugly Algae! should also incorporate this principle of unity. Your landscaping , Organic or Chemical Feeding of Plants - What's Best or flower garden , Fertilizing to Create More Blossoms on Your Flowers, Flowering Shrubs, and Trees is truly a work of art as much as any painting , The Most Popular Flower Fragrances or sculpture.

Each work of art, large or small, should have one and only one meaning. Every part of the work of art, or in our case flower garden , How to Plant Shrubs or landscaping, , Tips: What Mulch to Use for Trees should contribute to this central or unifying meaning. Stated in physical terms, all parts of the landscaping , The String Algae Blues should make one body of work with each part being subordinate to the whole. Every part which does not support in this effort must be removed, no matter how beautiful , Corylopsis (Winterhazel) - Spicata or interesting it may be in itself or so the principle of unity declares.

Unity taken to the extreme is monotony. When only one color, , Rose - The Flower of Love and Romance only one tone, or only one figure is used, the result may be monotonous. A garden , 7 Tips for Creating Fresh Hydrangea Bouquets planted with nothing but hollyhocks or a park with only red cedars would certainly be monotonous however beautiful , Mosquitos... Beware! the hollyhocks or cedars. Even so some believe it is better to have monotony than to lose unity. Indeed, in particular cases, monotony may be considered the height of artistic achievement.

Nearly all landscaping , How to Create a Wildflower Garden or gardening, , How to Create a Wildflower Garden in the hands of amateurs, shows too many forms, too many colors, , Landscaping Tips: What Mulch to Use for Trees and too many different kinds of plants. , Watering Your Lawn There are so many different kinds of plants , Tips for Choosing a Chiminea for Your Backyard or Patio and colors, , Gardening - What are Annuals and Biennials? you want to try them all. Fact is, the instances in which unity goes too far towards monotony are so rare, that these instances can be doubly interesting as curiosities.

Unity is frequently found through the development of functionality. If every part of the landscaping , Organic or Chemical Feeding of Plants - What's Best or flower garden , Tidy Your Up Cheaply has a definite and obvious practical pupose, then that dominating purpose can unify all the parts and pieces. Thus you can achieve unity.

In actual practice, the most powerful way to create unity lies in having a clear-cut motive and sticking to it. Essentially we mean, find a theme or subject for your landscaping , Japanese Plum Yew - Cephalotaxus Harringtonia 'Prostrata' or flower garden. , Wicker Patio Furniture - Buying and Maintenance Tips Stick to it however tempting it is to not do so.
