You can add beauty and street appeal by designing and planning a makeover for your residential or commercial properties. Landscape Design is a matter of incorporating the softscapes of your location, which includes: plants, shrubs, flowers and trees, along with the hardscape elements of your site, such as: paved patios, driveways and courtyards. When planning your Landscape Design you should consider some basic elements or principles of Design. There are four basic design elements to consider when planning to reinvent or to establish a new landscape site. The elements that must be taken into consideration for both softscapes (plants, shrubs, flowers) and hardscapes (paved patios and driveways) contained in your property are: Color, Form, Line and Texture.
