Landscape or garden design can be simple or complicted and it all depends on the space and requirements. In nature, landscapes develop naturally over many years. Those wonderfulviews that we stop to look at are really not possible to copy into our own gardens.
we can however, look at what makes a landscape 'catch our eye', explore the design principles and interpret them into a successful design for our own yards and gardens.
It is both the broader landscape and the smaller details that we need to take into consideration, however the principles are much the same. If you start with an evaluation of what you have, and an idea of the overall effect you would like to achieve, you are headed down the right path.
No exact set of principles apply to landscape and garden design, we have lookeed at what we consider to be the most important elements.
