What makes a good landscape
Landscaping Tips

It is generally easy to judge whether a landscape is good or bad. If a landscape is aesthetically pleasing, it is probably well designed. If, on the other hand, the landscape is unkept with disorganised placement, it would be considered to be poorly designed. Nonetheless, it is important to remember that your landscape should represent you and your family, your tastes and be a reflection of the home you live in. When designing your garden, it is important to consider your personal taste, and implement that into the landscaping. Additionally, other basic principals of landscape design should be applied so that your garden will be the best that it can be.  

A garden that works with the natural landscape

Work with natural slopes and contours to determine where vegetation should be planted, as the natural landscape should be complimented by the garden. Take the house or building into account when designing, especially in considering the style of the garden.  

Notice the lines

Consider the lines that are created when a particular plant, tree, shrub or hardscape is placed into a garden. Curved lines generally create an interesting atmosphere to a garden, and tend to intrigue the eye. On the other hand, straight lines are more formal and demonstrate a notion of order and neatness, especially when placed in front of a house.  


Architects work with light frequently to control how a building looks, and the way in which it will be perceived. Architects also work with light to create a visual impression affecting the way a person feels.  

Landscaping designers work with light in the same way so as to light certain aspects of a garden more so than others. Light is also utilised to open up particular aspects of a landscape to the eye, and to also evoke an emotional response from those who experience it.  

Light can also be a source of warmth, however it is important to consider the affect of too much sun over a patio, for instance. It is important to moderate the amount of light that is likely to appear over one area, and this can easily be done using shades.  

Also remember that light does not need to be natural, as it can also be artificial. Use small sidelights to accentuate a pathway for both safety and ambience, and consider backlighting for trees, sculptures or shrubs.  


An exciting way to bring out your individual personality is through colour. Different palettes seduce the eye, and it is important to consider what affect you wish to have on those who visit your garden. For instance, lighter colours such as light blue, green and purple calms the mind, and green especially evokes a sense of harmony and balance. On the other hand, brighter colours such as orange, red and yellow creates excitement and enlivens the mind.  

In combining colours that harmonise well, the landscape will look inviting and well balanced, as well as exciting and lively. Where colours do not combine well, the landscape can look hectic and chaotic, since the multiple affect of the colours can confuse the mind. In choosing flowers, find the balance between a lively landscape and an exceedingly simple one.  

While these five points may be a lot to consider, Blade Landscape Design can help you achieve them and more for your landscape, and transform your yard into a masterpiece.
