Landscape Design, the Art of making your garden beautiful

Landscape Design by Tudor Rose Landcapes

There are two main aspects involved in landscape design: the first is specific garden design and the second is the integrated landscape planning of that property. The latter is the broader of the two. The practicality (functionality), aesthetic (visual appeal), horticultural (the art of growing plants), and environmental sustainability of a property are all significant components in landscape design. Landscape designers are usually part of an integrated group of professionals whose disciplines all contribute towards the final product. These include architecture, civil engineering, surveying, botany, artisans among others.

Commercial Gardening

Landscape design can be divided into hardscape design that deals with natural but non-living parts of outdoor space design and softscape design that deals with elements of outdoor design that change over time. Achieving the perfect balance between these two to create an ideal landscape is important for the landscape designer whose job usually involves two distinct professional roles: landscape design and landscape architecture. With landscape design, the designer brings in the more artistic and horticultural aspects of their discipline through detailed site involvement right from the beginning concept stage to the final construct. With landscape architecture the designer deals with broader aspects of this field such as corporate landscapes, city parks, and in general urban planning. The two roles overlap in many ways and individual professionals in each field differentiate themselves through their experiences, licensing and education.

Design Factors

Landscape designers have to consider two major categories of design factors: objective qualities, which are generally measurable and designing has to be done with them in mind and subjective qualities which are based on their clients and their own skills, experiences, and talents and are not measurable.


Objective qualities can be legal such as municipal building codes; natural such as soils, groundwater and drainage, topography and climate; human factors such as access and recreation; among many others. Subjective qualities include client preferences, existing plants that are desirable to retain or replace, artistic factors depending on visual perspectives, plant palettes among other vast considerations that bring about a functional, and appealing garden.

Today, online landscape design gives landscapers the ability to design remotely using computers without making physical site visits. Though effective, due to the lack of supplementary data such as soil tests, the landscaper has to incorporate plants that can survive in many different soil conditions.
