Swimming Pool Design and Landscape

Landscape design plans help the client visualize the end result of any landscaping project. Landscape design plans can be drawn with a pencil and paper, design-planning software, or through a landscape design professional. One must be very clear about what is needed to be able to draw an aesthetically pleasing and practically viable landscape plan.

The first and foremost task when designing landscape is to measure the land area that needs to be landscaped. After conducting a survey of the land, draw what features already exist on the land and decide if you would like to retain any of them. Take into consideration natural factors and features of the land, the slope, elevation, soil characteristics as well as climatic conditions. After that comes the designing part. Be sure to study all shapes, styles and themes that are of interest to you, and then choose what you like best. The land area can be divided into four main sections: open spaces, plant areas, paths and features. Incorporate your selected shapes, styles and themes in each of these separate areas. For instance, if you're planning a circular landscape, are you going to have circular ponds, flower beds and pathways? Be aware of water inlet and outlet points on your land since you will surely need to install irrigation systems. Now draw these drainage, irrigation and lighting systems on the landscape design layout.

Once the landscape design is finalized, it is better to list what materials are required and the cost of each item. Then plan how much time you can devote for the creation of this landscape design. In case you plan to get your landscape design done by professionals, this plan can serve as a base to start work. Since you'll know your needs the best, it is advisable that you plan the landscape design personally.
