Landscape design is a time-consuming and complex business that cannot be done without special skills and qualifications. Any development of a landscape project requires a thoughtful approach and compliance with the main stages of landscape design. Basically, when creating such a project, all the work includes several stages.
THE FIRST STAGE OF LANDSCAPE DESIGN – SKETCH
At this stage, which is also called conceptual landscape design, the study of the space and object of the forthcoming activity takes place. For this purpose, a customer survey is conducted, during which a number of points are clarified:
- host style preferences;
- desired number of open-air zones of different directions;
- family composition;
- Family budget options
Then the area on which to work in the future is measured:
- boundaries are defined;
- the location of buildings is being studied, various zones are being determined;
- geodetic survey is being carried out, the relief of the site is being studied;
- introduction to communication schemes;
- The wind rose is determined.
In order to determine the most aesthetically attractive parts of the territory, special photography is carried out from all angles and a photo archive is compiled. The first stage of work on the landscape project also includes insolation and soil analysis. It is carried out so that the upcoming landscaping of the site is carried out correctly and for each zone exactly such plants are selected that could grow there safely for many years. At the first stage of landscape design, the question of how and where to place the main landscape elements is decided: flower beds, gardens, flower beds, streams. A network of paths and paths is determined and laid. Specifies whether terrain changes are required. For greater clarity and understanding of what will be, according to the designer’s intention, in the future on this site, a three-dimensional representation of the site layout options is used. During the same period, a preliminary estimate is provided, and after the customer approves it, the next stage of work begins.
WORKING LANDSCAPE DESIGN
At the second stage of landscape design, work on the master plan is carried out directly. The result of this work should be:
- a special layout construction drawing, it is drawn up both for each object individually and as a general one;
- landing drawing for future landscaping;
- Assortment sheet and dendroplan for large plants plus an explanatory note.
Having a master plan, you can safely choose the artist. Often, project designers and developers track how the plan they have developed is implemented and even control it throughout the year. This, as a rule, should be agreed in advance with the designers.
