Landscape Design

Landscape design is the art (and science) of modifying an outdoor space to create an aesthetically pleasing and functional space.  Knowledge of horticulture is essential to creating a landscape design that will flourish. Here at Nature’s Image, we have the knowledge and experience you need to create a landscape design tailored to your site’s unique characteristics, as well as your tastes and budget.

Landscape Designer

Our landscape designer will meet with you (and your builder or architect if desired) at your site to begin the process of creating your landscape design.

We will take the following principles of landscape design into consideration when developing your unique design including:

  • Form (Shape)
  • Texture
  • Color
  • Scale
  • Balance
  • Simplicity and Variety
  • Focal Point(s)
  • Lighting Exposure
  • And a few more

We will work with you to carefully select plant materials suited to our part of Maryland, reflecting a variety of textures, colors, shapes and sizes to create a balanced, colorful, and appealing landscape design. Depending on the size of your property, your landscape design may be divided into several outdoor “rooms”. We’ll use walkways and pathways to take you from one “room” to another. Based on the type of landscaping you’re looking for – formal gardens, cottage gardens or woodland scenes, for example – we’ll layout a plan showing the placement of trees, shrubs, flowers, water features, pathways, hardscapes and more. Once the design is finalized you’ll receive a written estimate for the cost of installing the landscaping and hardscaping.
