Lessons in San Diego Outdoor Landscaping
San Diego outdoor landscaping is an interesting art for people blessed with great creativity and patience. But sometimes it can be challenging especially when you're just starting out. One common problem people find troubling when starting out in their San Diego outdoor landscaping project is how to accommodate their decks and have it included in their project design. What these people fail to realize is that their decks need not compete with the garden landscape for attention. Some lessons ought to be taught on how to beautifully blend both the deck and garden in the design. Witness how your yard will be transformed into a breathtaking and colorful landscape while using your overlooking deck as the perfect backdrop. Here's how:
Create a connection between your garden and deck. You can accomplish this by placing paths and patios at your garden level. Have your paths lead to prime spots in your garden. You may make use of water features or retaining walls and even Hackett stones for walkways. Having a path leading from your garden path to the garden is a great way to make a visual and physical link between the two spaces. Repetition, as shown with the stone patterns, will give the garden a touch of continuity, a basic principle in the art of landscaping.
To fill the space found between your deck and garden, you may use attractive vertical plantings. This will also add to the continuous feature of your landscape. Avoid having your deck appear looming by limiting yourself to the use of low plants. An alternative method could be done by using two to three differing heights of trees and plants incorporated in the design. The contrast in the heights and differing patterns will be pleasing to the eye. One needs to make the deck appear as part of the San Diego outdoor landscaping area, which can be easily obtained by surrounding the deck with beautiful tall plants.
Evergreens are almost always present in every San Diego outdoor landscaping project. This is because evergreens look good the whole year round. This is important most especially because when everything else looks bare and barren in the winter season, the evergreens will still stand beautifully and aglow, providing a solid and nice foundation for the entire landscape.
A water feature does magic to every San Diego outdoor landscaping design when placed at the proper spot to blend with the other components of the garden. Such feature when placed near the house will provide an additional natural setting, and the sounds of the flowing water are always soothing to hear. Nothing beats a lazy afternoon spent in your deck and looking at the product of your hard work and patience while hearing the natural flow of your water feature. Continuity can also be enhanced by surrounding the pond with plants. They can be arranged in such a way that they do not compete with the grandeur of the pond. A few simple plants will do the trick. Pickerel weeds, Japanese iris, and spider lilies will be perfect to get a natural effect.
Make it a point to not stagnate your garden's beauty in the garden alone-bring it to the deck as well. This can be obtained by placing vines and other crawling plants in the face of your deck. Not only will your deck serve as a trellis to your vines, it will also provide a very sophisticated effect on the entire garden. Have colorful blooms fill your deck to accentuate this part of your garden.
San Diego outdoor landscaping as an art brings out the best in every creator. Imagination, resourcefulness, and patience make not only a breathtaking garden but a satisfied and happy garden owner as well.
