When we approach a landscape design project in Philadelphia or Montgomery County, PA, we consider all of the 5 basic elements, which include color, line, form, texture and scale. Using these elements, our landscape designers create a balance between living and natural environments. The goal is to create an outdoor space in which the greatest amount of enjoyment can be derived.
Color provides the emotion and underlying mood or character of the landscape. Line creates the movement or flow and directs the eye to various elements in the landscape. Form defines the shape and structure whereby texture refers to the surface quality of an object. Scale refers to the size of an object relative to its surroundings.
Using these elements, our Philadelphia landscaping designer will seek to accomplish the 7 main principles of landscape design. These include unity, balance, proportion, focalization or emphasis, sequence or transition, rhythm, and repetition.
Unity refers to the designing of a unified theme creating harmony and consistency. This means planning the use of the right materials, plants, and accessories that compliment the chosen theme. Balance seeks to create a sense of visual attraction giving the landscape equilibrium using symmetry and asymmetry. Proportion is the size relationship between the parts of a landscape. Focalization or Emphasis is the featured element that all other elements seek to enhance. Simply put a focal point. Sequence or Transition progressively changes patterns in the elements to assist in smooth visual movement across the landscape. Rhythm creates a sense of natural flow using repetition and natural elements. This could be a grouping of plants and/or other elements carefully arranged considering both patterns of color and form. Repetition relates directly to unity. Use of repeated elements or objects is an art form that must be skillfully planned in order to achieve a perfect visual blend.
