fundamental of element design in landscape.ppt

  1. 1. Garden Design Designing Gardens as Part of a Sustainable Landscape
  2. 2. Sustainable Landscape Design  Functional  Maintainable  Environmentally Friendly  Cost Effective  Visually Pleasing
  3. 3.  Consider the function of each portion of the landscape  Note problems/attributes in the existing landscape  Evaluate the site characteristics, including soil type, pH, light, wind, etc.  Decide on your goal and landscape style Sustainable Landscape Design
  4. 4. Garden Design Formal = straight lines, plants in rows, symmetrical, globes and columns Informal = curvilinear patterns, plants in intertwined masses, asymmetrical, natural plant forms Garden Design
  5. 5. Sustainable Landscape Design  Locate gardens as part of your overall landscape design  Create a good turf area, with functional spaces and gardens behind the concept lines that form the turf shape
  6. 6. Garden Design  Consider each individual viewpoint when designing the gardens and planting beds
  7. 7. Sustainable Landscape Design The most beautiful landscapes are “designed”, not decorated. They create unity by incorporating Principles of Design, including:
  8. 8. BALANCE
  9. 9. SCALE
  10. 10. REPETITION
  11. 11. SEQUENCE
  12. 12. SIMPLICITY
  13. 13. VARIETY
  14. 14. Design beds to keep maintenance to a minimum Garden Design
  15. 15. Sustainable Landscape Design
  16. 16. Sustainable Landscape Design
  17. 17. Sustainable Landscape Design
  18. 18. What makes it look good? Human eyes need a place to start: FOCAL POINT A focal point is the first thing we see when we look at a landscape. Sustainable Landscape Design
  19. 19. Examples of things that create focal points are: Artwork A plant that is different than those around it Structures Birdbaths, birdhouses, birdfeeders Boulders Bare spots Diseased/dying plants Debris FOCAL POINTS CAN CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE SEASONS! Sustainable Landscape Design
  20. 20. Sustainable Landscape Design Focal Point
  21. 21. Focal point Sustainable Landscape Design
  22. 22. Locating Focal Points Any given view of the landscape should have one major focal point, and maybe one or two secondary focal points. Too many focal points creates a “busy” landscape. Locate focal points 1/3 of the way from one side . Sustainable Landscape Design
  23. 23. Focal Point?? Sustainable Landscape Design
  24. 24. After our eyes find a focal point, they need to go somewhere, and look for lines to follow. Lines can be formed by edging, paths, structures, plant masses, plant form, shadows, etc. Sustainable Landscape Design
  25. 25. Focal point Sustainable Landscape Design
  26. 26. Sustainable Landscape Design Lines
  27. 27. Sustainable Landscape Design Lines
  28. 28. Sustainable Landscape Design Lines
  29. 29. Sustainable Landscape Design Lines
  30. 30.  Too many lines, or no lines, create a confusing, busy landscape.  Lines should take the eye where you want it to go—and keep it in the landscape.  Avoid lines that take the eye into the sky, or into the neighbor’s yard! Sustainable Landscape Design
  31. 31. Sustainable Landscape Design Before you start thinking about specific plant species, to get a good design, you must first plan for each plant’s characteristics, or “Elements of Design”
  32. 32. Elements of Design Primary (visual) Plant type Plant form Plant height/width Plant Texture Plant Season of Interest (including color) Sustainable Landscape Design
  33. 33. Plant Form: Arching Upright Creeping/spreading Drooping/weeping Mounded Horizontal branching Columnar Sustainable Landscape Design Consider both foliage form and flower form
  34. 34. Plant Size (height and width) Consider the plant’s MATURE, NATURAL size! Sustainable Landscape Design
  35. 35. Plant texture Visual coarseness/fineness of foliage, branching, flowers. A plant’s texture is relative to what’s around it, and it may change throughout the season. Plant texture is EXTREMELY important in design, and can make or break a landscape Sustainable Landscape Design
  36. 36. Texture Sustainable Landscape Design
  37. 37. Sustainable Landscape Design Texture
  38. 38. Sustainable Landscape Design Texture
  39. 39. The finer the texture, the more of it you need. Lawn grass is our finest textured plant. Consider textural changes to create a focal point, repetition, and variety. Sustainable Landscape Design
  40. 40. Season of Interest This is how you get a landscape that is interesting all year—by planning it out on paper! For each plant, group or mass, think about when it will have significant interest, and make that work with what’s around it, creating focal points, repetition, unity. Sustainable Landscape Design
  41. 41. Sustainable Landscape Design Season of Interest
  42. 42. COLOR! What’s the easiest way to choose a color scheme? Sustainable Landscape Design
  43. 43. Sustainable Landscape Design
  44. 44. Sustainable Landscape Design Color * Warm colors appear closer, so are good for viewing from a distance. * Cool colors recede, so are better up close.
  45. 45. Sustainable Landscape Design
  46. 46. Sustainable Landscape Design Color
  47. 47. STEAL AND COPY ONE!!!!
  48. 48. Sustainable Landscape Design
  49. 49. Sustainable Landscape Design
  50. 50. Elements of Design Secondary: Soil/fertility preferences (non-visual) Moisture requirements Light requirements Hardiness Disease & Insect resistance Sustainable Landscape Design
  51. 51. On a scale drawing, locate plants in slightly intertwined groups and masses, using single plants only when a focal point is desired. These groups and masses will help move the eye through the landscape. Sustainable Landscape Design
  52. 52. Next, keeping in mind the Principles of Design (Balance, Scale, Variety, Emphasis, Simplicity, Sequence, Repetition), assign Elements of Design characteristics to each plant, plant group or plant mass. Sustainable Landscape Design
  53. 53.  “Key” plants soften a hard feature in the landscape  On vertical corners or structures, they break the visual vertical line and keeps the eye in the landscape  They soften large areas of hard surface, such as retaining walls or fences Sustainable Landscape Design
  54. 54. Sustainable Landscape Design
  55. 55.  “Accent” plants are a focal point— they draw attention to themselves  Could be all year, or only certain times, such as when in bloom  Accent plants can be a single plant, a group, or a mass Sustainable Landscape Design
  56. 56. Sustainable Landscape Design
  57. 57.  Plant “groups” are 3 or more of a species, where each individual plant is discernable  Often serve as accent plants at some point during the year Sustainable Landscape Design
  58. 58. Sustainable Landscape Design
  59. 59.  “Mass” plants – when many plants of a particular species are planted close enough together so that you can’t see the individual plants  Masses serve to move the eye between more important components and to tie a landscape together Sustainable Landscape Design
  60. 60. Sustainable Landscape Design
  61. 61. Start with a backdrop! Everything looks better with a backdrop! Create one if one doesn’t exist yet. Then, locate any non-plant focal points. Then, start with your biggest plant or your focal point plants. Using your available space as a guideline, your tallest plant should be 1/3 or 2/3 the height of the backdrop (unless the backdrop is more than 18-20 feet tall). Sustainable Landscape Design
  62. 62. Sustainable Landscape Design
  63. 63. How big should your garden be? The width of a border planting should be 1/3 the width of the total area. Each “height” should have an equal amount of space within the bed. Flower Garden Design
  64. 64. In small areas where other rules don’t apply, a 4-8 foot wide border allows for an attractive variety of plants. Sustainable Landscape Design
  65. 65. For island beds, be sure they fit into the overall concept plan. A good standard size is 8 feet wide, 15 feet long, with maximum plant height of 5 feet, but it should be in scale to the site! The tallest plant should be as tall as ½ the width of the bed. Sustainable Landscape Design
  66. 66. For beds viewed from a distance, hold your hands out in front of you at shoulder width. Where your hands meet the backdrop is a good length for your flower bed. Garden Design
  67. 67. Sustainable Landscape Design
  68. 68. Sustainable Landscape Design
  69. 69. Know what plants look like all year
  70. 70. Intertwine plant groups to avoid lines that act as inadvertent focal points
  71. 71. Deciduous shrub, 2 ½ ’ X 5’, creeping, medium texture, spring interest Deciduous shrub, 6’ X6’, upright, medium texture, fall interest Evergreen shrub, 4” X 4’, mounded, coarse texture, winter interest Herbaceous perennial, 18” tall, mounded, fine texture, summer interest (red flowers) Ornamental grass, 40” tall, upright, medium texture, fall interest Sustainable Landscape Design
  72. 72. Finally, choose specific plant species that match the assigned characteristics for each plant, group or mass. Sustainable Landscape Design
