Top 5 Landscape Design Elements

The ideal outdoor space would be aesthetically pleasing, functional (for things like recreation and entertainment), and eco-friendly. Your current lawn design could need revision if it lacks these features. We at J&L Hardscapes, LLC, can create and put in place a beautiful landscape design for your home.

Essential Components of a Landscape

Incorporating landscape design features into your property gives you a lot of leeways to express your style. Consider these five essential components of any landscape:

Flowers & Gardens

With annual flowers planted, your yard will be bright with color all through the growing season. Annuals like pansies and begonias can be rotated with perennials and flowering shrubs to create a colorful and varied display. The first step in planting seasonal flowers is to map out where each bed will go. Tillers and shovels of varying sizes are used to prep the soil. The best conditions for growth are made through the application of slow-release fertilizer. There are now flowers on the windowsill that are appropriate for the season. The success of your garden depends on careful planning and the inclusion of the proper species of plants, flowers, and shrubs.

Plants & Trees

Plants and flowers are a great addition to any landscape or yard space. In addition to grass and trees, planting flowering trees and shrubs is a great way to enhance the visual appeal of your outdoor areas. Plants and trees give your property a vibrant, eye-catching look. Find a firm with a solid reputation for successfully installing trees, shrubs, and other plants. When advising you on which plants would thrive in a particular area of your yard or garden, they will consider the space’s aesthetic and theme. Those with limited outdoor space may suggest supplementing their garden with plants kept in freestanding containers. This method makes the containers easy whenever a new look is desired.

Grass Lawns

The importance of a well-maintained garden or front yard to a home’s curb appeal should never be discounted. Your home’s curb appeal will increase significantly if you take good care of your front yard. Getting a thick, healthy lawn can be done in a few different ways. You can roll out sod for an instant, lush green lawn, or you can save money by seeding or hydroseeding your property with the grass varieties of your choice. Professional lawn installation services are something only a landscaping business skilled in its craft can provide.


You can think of the concrete and masonry features in your landscape as the bedrock upon which everything else is built. Walkways, paths, driveways, sidewalks, decks, retaining walls, fire features, patios, outdoor kitchens, and more are some of the hardscaping features that the company you hire can design and install for you.

Professional hardscapers will map out your garden beds and create tidy borders to enable you to grow the plants you want and lay down the grass you need. We use various materials in our hardscaping installations, including brick, pavers, natural stone, boulders, rocks, concrete masonry units, and more.

Water Features

Water features are a must-have for any residential or commercial landscaping project. So, you should add this to your lawn as well. Choose a stone fountain if your yard is only large enough for a modest water feature. Make it the focal point of your garden smack dab in the middle. Ponds and waterfalls are other attractive alternatives. If your lawn isn’t huge, you might want to have this installed in the corner of the backyard to maximize your space. If you’re short on the room or concerned about safety, you can also go for a waterfall that doesn’t require a pond.

To make your landscape dreams a reality, you will need the help of experienced operators who can help you realize your vision.
