What Can Landscaping Do For Your Property?
The basic purpose of landscaping - the creation of a pleasant, functional, personal environment - is increasingly recognized by homeowners here in Dallas. But the most interesting things homeowners said revealed how much they have learned about landscape gardening as an art, and what it can mean in improving the quality of day-to-day living. For although their private landscapes are infinitely varied, depending on personal preference, the underlying principles they have made use of are the same. Those principles, once understood, can be applied by any homeowner to make his own lot a happier one.
Each of these well-designed gardens was planned on some detail before a plant was bought or a brick was laid. The need for such an overall concept of the landscape is often ignored; for many people think first in terms of specific shrubs and trees; they fall in love with a blue spruce or cherry and rush out to bring it home and get it into the ground, without always considering how it might best be used. The result of this approach can be a hodgepodge of nursery plants, hard to maintain, disappointing to look at, uncomfortable to live with.
Each plant has its own special characteristics and we strive to make sure every client has a thorough understanding of design work beforehand. One other main appeal of landscape design is privacy. Most people want their houses and grounds to provide some sense of shelter from the crowding and tension of an urban world. They seek seclusion, yet not at the cost of a feeling of confinement. No matter what your needs are, we are here to help.
