Types of Landscaping Designs

So you’ve decided to landscape your home but do not know where to start? Look no further. We’re here to help. Landscaping designs can be many things from a fun extension of your personality to a lovely way to combine nature and culture. There are many different styles to chose from. Where do you start?

The first place is to start by picking a basic landscape design technique based on the style of your home and your personality. From there, choose plants that will suit the areas well. Here at Hyatt Landscaping, we provide the best landscaping designs and installations throughout Charlotte NC, Huntersville NC, Cornelius NC and more. Call us today for a FREE Consultation on your landscaping project.

Here are just three of the most popular landscape design techniques:

Formal Landscaping – Formal landscaping is full of perfect geometrical shapes and straight lines. Everything is planted in an orderly fashion. The plants, shrubs, trees and flowers are planted in straight lines, or defined patterns, with equal spacing between them. In this type of landscaping the plants must be closely managed and pruned to maintain the effect. This type of design favors symmetry although is not always feasible in some areas.

Informal Landscaping – Informal landscaping is full of curves rather than straight lines. Plants may be placed almost at random. This is a very relaxed design with no defined geometrical shapes. This does not require as much maintenance as the formal landscape. A good example of this design would be a curving garden path outlined with a wide variation of flowers and bushes.

Garden Landscaping – Garden landscaping is a great way to beautify your yard with its many differing elements. These beautiful areas of gently rolling grass areas are set against a background of wood inset with different bushes. They’re marked by the presence of a small pond or lake set with a pier or bridge. This can be easily adapted from a large yard to fit the needs of a smaller area.
