Garden Design Layout Plan

May 01, 2021 Developing a landscape design requires an understanding of the dynamic nature of the landscape. When we create a final design plan, we rely on basic design considerations, environmental design considerations, plant selection guidelines, and plan preparation instructions. Basic Design Considerations. Emphasize by Grouping Plants. Pre-Planned Gardens: We first introduced our 'Gardens in a Box' over a decade ago and despite our efforts, we sell out every season. The plants, the instructions, the map. We do everything but dig the holes! Our Pre-Planned Gardens have been professionally designed by some of the biggest names in horticulture: our founder David Salman and garden designer Lauren Springer. Plants Decide the shape of your planting beds. Beds with clean lines define areas and points of interest. Curves tend to look. Think of using plants as you'd decorate your house. Pick a few colors that work together or at least avoid lots of color. Feel free to mix up texture and size.
