Four Landscape Design Elements

Here are the main four landscape design elements that we use to transform an ordinary outdoor space into an extraordinary experience:

Color

In landscape design, color is used for visual interest. It can be added with plant material or hardscapes. Color will bring a garden to life by adding dimension and interest.

Line

Lines can be vertical, diagonal, horizontal, or curved. Straight and hard angles will create a clean, formal look, while curved lines will create more of a casual look. Vertical lines can be used to make an outdoor space feel larger. Horizontal lines make a space feel bigger by pulling the eye along the ground.

Texture

Texture can be introduced to a landscape design by adding plants, it can also be created using hardscape materials. Different textures will add interest to any landscape and play an important role in design composition.

Form

Form refers to the shapes of objects in a landscape. Landscape forms bring emotions and create atmosphere. By choosing certain shapes in a design we set the mood of a landscape project. Straight-lined forms feel structured and formal, triangles are strong, circles are soft, and asymmetrical shapes are casual and organic.
