How To Design The Perfect Landscape | Landscape Design 101
Landscape design is an art form that requires a great deal of skill and creativity. It is the process of creating a beautiful outdoor space that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. It involves the careful selection of plants, trees, and other elements to create a harmonious and balanced environment.
When designing a landscape, it is important to consider the overall look and feel of the space. This includes the size, shape, and color of the plants, trees, and other elements. It is also important to consider the climate and soil conditions of the area. This will help determine which plants and trees will thrive in the environment.
The first step in designing a landscape is to create a plan. This plan should include the overall design, the type of plants and trees to be used, and the location of each element. It is also important to consider the budget and timeline for the project. Once the plan is complete, it is time to begin the actual design process.
The next step is to select the plants and trees that will be used in the landscape. This includes selecting the right type of plants and trees for the climate and soil conditions of the area. It is also important to consider the size and shape of the plants and trees. This will help create a balanced and harmonious look.
Once the plants and trees have been selected, it is time to begin the actual installation process. This includes digging the necessary holes, planting the plants and trees, and adding any necessary soil amendments. It is also important to consider the placement of the plants and trees. This will help create a pleasing and functional landscape.
Once the installation is complete, it is time to add the finishing touches. This includes adding mulch, rocks, and other decorative elements. It is also important to consider the lighting of the area. This will help create a beautiful and inviting atmosphere.
Finally, it is important to maintain the landscape. This includes watering the plants and trees, pruning them, and fertilizing them. It is also important to consider the overall maintenance of the area. This includes mowing, weeding, and trimming.

Great Ideas tried my best, any suggestion. for improvement?
Also to keep in mind how it all will look like in different seasons and how you will utilize those zones in winter.
Excellent insights and design descriptions
Remember that light pollution is dangerous for pollinators and birds! Don’t leave lights on all night, especially those that shine light into the sky.
I'm not a fan of pool or pond. What do you thing the best subtitute to fill the space?

Just for who need SEBOSS hardware cloth,1/2,1/4 opening ,19 GA, Hot dip galvanized after welding, double galvanized, strong and sturdy, delicate and beautiful, suitable as gopher wire, protect lawn/garden from all kinds of gophers.
Metal fences with adequate climbers are much better aesthetics. The help other flora/fauna, reduce noise, allow wind flow and provide privacy without the intense hedge maintenance
It would be great if someone inboxed me now

This can apply to video games too. Thanks a bunch.
Algun programa para diseñar jardines en 3D???
Landscaper: What would you like?
Landscaper: This is a screenshot of a youtube video?
Me: Yes. Yes it is.
Please SKIP the landscape lighting. Light pollution is real and is bad for both humans and wildlife.
Grass tells truth
Surprisingly good video that gives a lot of ideas on what to think about.
It’s a very nice explanation, even my parents agree
2:30 I mean, you could use corn. The odds the ghost of Shoeless Joe Jackson pops out of it at 3AM is trivial.
Shut your hole, sweet dreams 😤😘😤
420 time I appreciate that.
Amazin, thank you
If this is a app that they used to make the design in this video, someone please let me know as I need to make a backyard design for a job.
What app is thiss
I know I’m a little late getting into this video, but here goes. As a licensed landscape architect with 44 years of practice, let me suggest a few things when getting started doing a landscape plan for your home. First, find a copy of your property plat map with the surveyed boundaries of your lot and use a copy of that (with a good scale) as your base plan. If you can’t find that, hike down to the county or municipal courthouse and get one from the tax folks, they have all of the property plat maps. Second, check with your utility people to see where all of your utilities enter your property and extend to your house, especially those underground (avoid those when digging). Third, either by sight, experience or by measurement, determine how water flows across your property during a heavy rainstorm, note where there are swales on your property or where water accumulated during a storm. Fourth, determine where the sun rises and sets during each season with respect to your house (which way does your house face? North, south, east, west?) and where large trees or hills might cast shadows on your property. Fifth, be aware of your neighbors’ landscape features, and adjoining streets, streams or public spaces. Now, start writing all of these details on and around your base plat map before starting your landscape design. Then begin to identify (just use blobs) the public, private, maintenance and other zones around your house and the connections between them (walkways, lawn areas, etc.) before you start locating plants and other landscape features (I.e. ponds, decks, patios, play courts, etc.). Then start doing what this video tells you about placing plants and beds. Remember, plants GROW and need some space if they are to reach their full potential, don’t try shearing a sequoia😀 good luck. Oh, if this is a bit too much effort, hire yourself a licensed landscape architect, he or she can do what you need.
I’m having trouble visualizing how I can use this information and after seeing the huge houses and layouts in this video. I’d have to use my yard and two neighbours’ yards or a local park.
Okay, but HOW
Me: so… copy and paste 😉
Normally I'm "ok" at designing but for some reason I'm pretty nervous about the landscape of the front of the house. I have a clean slate with bricks in front and I'm just trying to get the height and placement together … while looking up perennials that do well in the sun/shade. I hope I don't plant anything that'll grow to block the window… trying to avoid that
I'm just here to learn landscaping for my teapot in genshin.
