Landscape . Garden
More than meets the Eye
Landscape design is as much about function as it is form. It’s as much about celebrating the natural and the man-made as it is developing a pleasing natural aesthetic. Providing Green infrastructure, public parks, gardens and public art all fall within its broad spectrum. Plants, flowers, grass, ground cover, shrubs and trees form part of its rich palette, as do natural features such as rock formations, stonework, pools, fountains, screen walls, gazebos, benches and
fences. Equally, there are many practical elements to consider and balance in the development of an effective and functional outdoor environment: zoning, transport infrastructure, sewerage, views and existing buildings. All of these
considerations form a context that’s crucial to the success of any landscape design.
