Natural landscape in your own garden

We will begin by introducing the most important elements that intervene in a landscape, these are the biotic, abiotic and anthropic components. Within the biotic components are the plants and the vegetation, and within the abiotic are the atmospheric conditions and also the relief, the latter being a static element that acts as a basis for the other components of the landscape.

Finally, the anthropic elements are those made by or for the human being. We can classify the type of landscape depending on which of the three elements mentioned above is the one that predominates; For example, a forest would be a clear example of a biotic landscape, while an urban area would be part of an anthropic landscape.

Well, in order to create a landscape design beautiful and balanced we must take into account all the natural factors, such factors are: the geographical situation, the type of relief, the quality of the substrate, the climate, the water and its movement, the soil, the vegetation, the floristic composition and the architectural structure, among others.

Next we will study which are the visual elements that intervene, since as we can see, a large part of the information we perceive about a given landscape is through sight. We must choose which will be the most important points on which the focus will be focused, and according to these points we will also create the lines.

Every point or center of attention is highlighted and highlighted thanks to the lines as they indicate and show the importance of the points. In case the lines are several and extend in more than one direction, we will be talking about plans. These planes can be of three classes depending on their shape: curved, smooth or twisted.

We will also see that the landscape will change depending on the variables or the visual characteristics. Each element that intervenes provides a concrete vision regarding the position it occupies, the number, its size, its shape, its texture and its color. Once we have clear these concepts we can move on to the composition of our natural landscape.

To start composing the design of our garden we must follow a series of rules that will be of great benefit to us. At a visual level we will consider the scale, the proportion, the diversity unit, the axes, the symmetry and the contrast and harmony rhythm. Starting with the scale, we will say that there are two types; the human scale and the monumental one.

In the human one, the size of the person is taken as reference, while in the monumental part it is based on elements of great importance. To achieve a harmony in the environment we must group the elements of similar characteristics also fulfilling a certain proportion. All this together will create the unity of the landscape.

Regarding diversity, it is important that a certain order be followed to avoid the feeling of chaos. That is, by many different elements that we can find in the same space, those of a similar nature must be grouped. The axes of the garden are those elements that trace the lines that later we will use as a guide for the design.

Such axes do not have to be straight lines or concrete paths, rather they are those parts of the landscape that are static and intervene in a very specific way in the global view of the place. The symmetry may or may not occur, but in any case it is always the symbol of tranquility and balance.

Finally we will think about the rhythm and contrast of the elements of the landscape. The rhythm is based on the determined repetition of the elements creating dynamism, as if it were a movement that repeats itself. The contrast deals with the contrast of the nature of the elements such as color, texture, etc.

Taking into account all these factors, we can practice using some type of online program of landscape designs. These programs help create custom garden designs and provide a final image of the landscape from various angles and many of them also offer practical gardening tips.

As we mentioned in previous posts, the oriental influence in the design of modern gardens is very current. This style seeks at all times the harmony and peace in the environment turning gardens into places very conducive to meditation. However, Japanese culture has specific models and rules for this type of natural landscape designs.

It is worth mentioning that in the design of the Japanese gardens, balance is sought by downplaying the central elements so that no one area intervenes more than another visually, this makes the mind of the viewer is active and aware of the landscape at all times .

We will also add as a suggestion that certain details such as stone paths, platforms and pergolas of teak wood or natural pools with rockeries are very current and requested elements in practically all styles of landscape designs of private gardens because they help to complete it macro view of the natural landscape.
