THE DESIGN PROCESS
UNDERSTAND USER'S NEEDS
The users are typically you; your family, your employee and visitors, and each have their own needs. There are five things to consider: 1) how do you currently use the land, 2) how do you want to use the land, 3) aesthetically, how do you want it to look, 4) what is your maintenance style and 5) what is your budget. We can meet on your site and discuss about your thoughts, ideas and feelings regarding your landscape, your uses and what you are looking to accomplish.
A thorough inventory and analysis of the site is important to determine the environmental conditions for plant growth and the best use of the site. Issues of concern include the soil type, sunlight receiving, availability of water, existing vegetation, topography, and regional climate. Drainage should also be noted and all drainage problems corrected in the proposed design. A good design will move water away from the site and re-route it to other areas of the land.
USE OF STYLE THEME
There are many different landscape design themes- from simple to complex, but it is helpful to choose one to guide your plant and material selection. Think of a theme as the inspiration for your garden. Before choosing a theme it is important to look at the surrounding views of your property. Care should be taken to choose appropriate themes for your yard based on the architecture, the type of neighbourhood, the topography, and the regional landscapes. This is called "sense of place", which means it fits with the surroundings.
CREATING FUNCTION DIAGRAMS
The yard is an extension of the home, building, office and factories where a variety of activities take place. According to the various activity garden area should be divided into the various section like Pathway, Lawn, Children play area, party area, setting area, vegitable area, maintenance area, flower beds, shade area, etc.
SELECTION OF PLANTS
From a design perspective, plant materials have three major functions in the landscape. For these reasons, the types of plants to be used (such as trees, shrubs, or groundcovers) should be chosen in the early stages of planning. Plant types are chosen for their functional capabilities so that their future purpose and required space can be considered at the same time.
HIGHLIGHT IMPORTANT POINTS
Important points in the garden should be highlighted by the use of unique plants, distinct structures, or garden ornaments. Like Arch at entrance of garden, Gazebo at setting area, introducing water features, Other important places in the yard are focal points, which is used to visually organize a landscaped area. The type of focal point often depends on the viewing perspective. Different perspectives or viewpoints can reveal different compositions in the landscape that may require a variety of focal points. Contrasting texture, shape, size and color will capture and hold the eye.
DESIGNING OTHER IMPORTANT FACTORS
This includes designing of pathway, lighting system, layout of Irrigation system, Fencing, Gate, Maintenance area etc.
MAKING FINAL LAYOUT
After considering all the aspects, we will make the rough layout of Landscape. Which was includes softscape as well as hardscape. Softscape includes layout of lawn, flower beds, shrubs, trees etc. Hardscapes includes pathway, edging, benches, lightning, gazibos, Arches, children play areas and other concrete work involved in landscape. Layout also includes Irrigation sysyem (if you required). This rough layout will be discussed with you. After finalisation we will design final layout in CAD system.
FINAL LAYOUT WILL INCLUDE
Layout of landscape with 2D representation
Design of Irrigation system
Designing of Hardscape
Exact quantity of garden material, plants & lawn required
3D illustration of landscape at different segments and from various view.
