No garden is too big or too small for the Bohonyi Landscaping team! As a lawn design and maintenance expert, John Bohonyi shares the 6 principles of landscape design so you can make the outdoor space of your dreams.
- Create a focal point. Oftentimes, the focal point in a landscape will center around your front door in the front yard or around a social space in the backyard.
- Use the Golden Ratio. Also known as the Golden Rectangle, this will help you lay out patios, gardens, and more using ratios that are pleasing to the eye.
- Aim for simplicity so that your eye isn’t overwhelmed with clutter. Keep the overall color scheme and style consistent throughout your space.
- Play with textures. Between plants, wood, metal, stone, etc, you should be layering all kinds of different textures into the space.
- Keep scale in mind when thinking about the design of your outdoor space and make sure it works with existing structures, such as your home itself.
- Think about how the different seasons will affect the space and include plants that will add color even during the wintertime.
