Landscaping consideration at your Glasgow property

Landscaping examples are everywhere and all around us; it is the ‘science’, if you like, of how outside space is used and how hard landscape area fit well within the natural surroundings.

There are key factors and considerations that need to be taken into account when looking to landscape any area around your Glasgow home and business.

Engaging a professional landscaping service local to you will get you the results you need but how do landscapers create such amazing designs that fit and complement the surroundings, as well as having incredible usability and functionality?

There are 6 key essential elements to any design:

#1 Use & Purpose

The key question that many designers ask their clients before they start designing is what do you want to use the space for. It could be for one or a combination of the following;

  • Entertaining & socialising
  • Kids playing
  • Relaxing
  • Gardening
  • Cooking and dining

Knowing how you want to use the space is integral to the design.

#2 Who is using the space?

Landscaping at your Glasgow property will need to be safe for anyone using the space; children playing in an area will need additional considerations than if it were an adult only space, for example.

#3 The environment

This is a survey, if you like, of the space you intend to landscape. Where are the sunny spots, for example as well as wind direction, shaded areas, how water drains away and in which direction as well as taking into account any views that you may have.

#4 Soil type

Once this has been decided, if looking to create soft, planted areas, the landscaper will need to look at the soil; not all plants thrive in all types of soil and so you may find that choices either need to change or new soil needs bringing in.

#5 Planted zones

These are the parts of the design that soften the hard landscapes sections of the garden but is also an area that adds shade and privacy to a landscaped area.

#6 Style

And finally, landscaping of your Glasgow garden will need to fit with the style the style that you want; this could be to match other parts of the garden or you may opt for something completely new – modern, minimalist designs are popular for example, but if the rest of the garden is traditional in style, is might not mix well.

Landscaping your Glasgow garden is a great way of creating a relaxing, beautiful space. Once completed, all you need to do is enjoy it!
