The Benefits of Planting Design

Composing plants in particular designs is an artform. It requires creative flair, horticultural experience, and an eye for complimentary colours and textures. When executed professionally, planting design can provide the following benefits:

  • Satisfy a property’s functional and aesthetic needs
  • Draw the eye
  • Transform a garden space
  • Compliment the natural surroundings

The Four Components of Planting Design

Planting design involves many aspects, and these are outlined below:

1. Engineering

Plant design can be used to support site engineering purposes such as protecting buildings from glare or heat, stabilising slopes, increasing pedestrian safety, and cleaning polluted water. Many beautifully designed gardens have been planted in such a way to support a site’s engineering needs.

2. Horticultural

The horticultural aspect of planting design involves matching the needs of the plants to the condition of the site. Just because a plant may have the right aesthetic, doesn’t mean it will thrive in a particular area. Naomi and her team consider everything about a site, from climate to soil type, to ensure the right plants are chosen for each garden.

3. Architectural

Planting design can be a powerful tool for drawing the eye. Well-designed planting schemes can highlight the architectural features of a building, such as stone walls, signage, entries, and sculptures. In the same way, they can be used to conceal the less appealing forms of architecture such as car parks and boundary fences.

4. Aesthetic

This is what most people think of when they picture planting design. Choosing the right plants is vital to creating the right aesthetic for a space. Whether you are after a particular colour scheme or you want a garden that’s in bloom all year round, professional planting design will help you realise your vision.
