There a few key principles that all good lawnscapes share in common. Genesis Group understands far more than the basics of creating a perfect picture for your lawn. Great lawnscaping lies in the eyes of its creator, and we can help you design and implement the lawnscape of your dreams.
A certain level of repetition will create unity in your new lawn. Repeating elements like plants or groups of plants, rocks, types of mulch and the like will create a feeling of continuity and completion. Keeping it simple, however, is one of the underlying principles of almost all art. A busy and crowded lawnscape doesn’t do any favors for itself. By creating a sense of balance and equality in your lawnscape, you and your guests can relax in the natural atmosphere. Contrast can also be used to create flowing lines that draw attention to the highlights of your brainchild.
Focalization or Emphasis directs visual attention to a point of interest or prominent part of the landscape design. This could be a hanging earth-forms sculpture, a stone-finished Corinthian garden fountain, a mass of architectural herbaceous perennials, or an elegant spruce. Emphasis in landscape design may be achieved by using a contrasting color, a different or unusual line, or a plain background space. Paths, walkways, and strategically placed plants lead the eye to the focal point of the landscape without distracting from the overall landscape design.
Using rhythm can create a feeling of motion which leads the eye from one part of the landscape design to another part. Repeating a color scheme, shape, texture, line or form evokes rhythm in landscape design. Proper expression of rhythm eliminates confusion and monotony from landscape design.
Making the decision to hire a lawnscaping company can be daunting. On the surface, all companies may seem the same. Genesis Group stands apart from the competition with our acquired experience and intuition in working directly with our clients to craft masterpieces of lawnscaping.
