Grounds Care Services offers a garden design and landscaping service for new and existing clients.
It is vital that ‘right plant, right spot’ is implemented as well as blending various mediums to create a garden that is in context with the buildings and clients expectations while working within a specific budget.
We apply the basic principles of landscaping design best practices:
It can be described as unity, consistency and repetition. Repetition creates harmony by repeating alike elements like plants, plant groups, or decor throughout the landscape. Consistency creates harmony in the sense that some or all of the different elements of the landscape fit together to create a whole. Too many unrelated objects can make the garden look cluttered and unplanned.
Pick a few design ideas, or colours and repeat them throughout the garden or landscape. Keeping decor to a minimum and within a specific theme.
There are basically two types of balance in landscape design, symmetrical and asymmetrical.
Symmetrical balance is where there are more or less equally spaced matching elements of the garden design. Asymmetrical balance is a little more complex and often has separate or different themes with each having an equal but different type of attraction.
This adds the dimension of real life and interest to the landscape. Bright colours like reds, yellows and oranges seem to advance toward you and can actually make an object seem closer to you.
Cool colours like greens, blues, and pastels seem to move away from you and can make an object seem farther from you. Greys, blacks, and whites are considered neutral colours and are best used in the background with bright colours in the foreground.
This can be applied to avoid radical or abrupt changes in your landscape design. Transition is basically gradual change. It can be illustrated in terms of plant height or colour but can also be applied to all elements in the landscape including; textures, foliage shape or size, and the size and shape of different elements.
This is of the more structural principles of landscape design. It can mostly be related to the way beds, walkways, and entryways move and flow. Straight lines are forceful and direct while curvy lines have a more natural, gentle, flowing effect.
A variety of landscape features are used to integrate various styles of landscapes thus creating a unique style to your garden, such as:
- Design and installation of new gardens
- Revamping of existing gardens
- Garden features (benches, garden ornaments, etc.)
- Water features (fountains, ponds, etc.)
- Paving, walkways & pathways
