Landscape Design - Features

The features of landscape design include natural elements along with your added designs. For instance, a rock garden can use natural elements that you will find in your own backyard, arranged in an attractive fashion. Decks and patios are your optional features that are used in the design plan to provide a comfortable area for you to entertain and relax while you enjoy the tranquility and serenity of your own natural space..
Common features of landscape design include flower gardens, shrubs, fountains, ponds, decks, patios, rock gardens, gazebos, swimming pools and carefully arranged trees. An effective use of lighting is another feature that should be included in a landscape design. For instance, if you plan to entertain a great deal in your backyard, you should consider lighting for night time entertaining and plenty of comfortable seating for your guests.


A larger landscaping project can be broken down into smaller stages to keep the costs low. The costs can also be kept low by doing a majority of the work by you instead of hiring landscapers as there are free online videos being provided by the nurseries. Building a pond or a deck is a do-it-yourself project that is much less costly when the price of labor is eliminated, before building a pond, please follow carefully steps explained by the nurseries. The project will also be much easier to complete if it is planned in small stages instead of one large landscaping project. It’s good to span the project for a few years down the road to get the landscaping design that you want.
