Overview

If you are creating a landscape design and want it to be as good as it can be, you need to understand the concept of unity. This is absolutely key to a good landscape design and needs to be applied to your entire yard and home exterior. A balanced look and feel is what you are striving for, with a sense of continuity to all landscape design elements.

You can achieve this feeling of wholeness in your landscape design in several different ways. The most basic thing to start with is using the similar kinds of trees and plants throughout your design. This is one of the easier things you can do for your landscape design, and will look excellent if some thought is put into it.

Being aware of and using heights to your advantage is another key concept. Use trees of similar heights, and plants and shrubs of similar heights as well. This can bring a feeling of completeness and wholeness to your landscape design.
But any good landscape design uses many more elements than only plants and trees. Flowers are beautiful, and can provide needed color and accents, they only bloom for a part of the year (unless you are lucky enough to live in a tropical climate). This means you need to find other elements to balance your landscape design out year round. Rocks and landscaping stones can be used to great effect, and wood chips can provide an interesting base for your plants. If you have a larger budget, using stone such as granite or marble can create wonderful effects in your landscape design. Stepping stones, statues, and fountains are just a few more elements that can be considered in addition to the plants.

Having some sort of theme in mind can help out a lot when attempting to achieve a unified landscape design. If you want lots of butterflies or birds, for instance, choose plants and settings that will attract them into your yard. The presence of these living creatures can provide that final touch that takes your landscape design from good to great.

When it is all said and done, your landscape design should have a flow and sense of continuity from the beginning of your yard to the end. And remember, your landscape design is for you above all else. If you like it, don't let someone else tell you that you can’t make it for your garden.
