“The earth has music for those who listen.” That is a quote from George Santayana, Spanish philosopher and naturalist. Scientific research sources support his words. Studies have indicated that people who live in or close to a nature habitat actually experience fewer symptoms of depression. Being in a natural forest setting has been known to encourage people to exercise, to get out there and walk or run along those tree lined trails through the woods. Sounds great doesn’t it? But most of us will have to be content by appreciating the landscape closer to home.
That doesn’t mean that we have to forego the beauty of nature. We can create it in our own backyards with the help of a professional landscape designer. It may be best to have some idea of what kind of landscape you would like to have before you meet with the experts. Take a drive around an established neighborhood and take pictures of what others have done to enhance their terrain.
Pretty much anything goes these days as far as landscaping rules are concerned. It used to be the unwritten rule that the front lawn be confined to trees and greenery, but now homeowners are including flowering shrubbery and borders along their front walkways. The entryway to your home represents the first impression that visitors and passersby will have, so why not make it the most attractive. Your professional can help you choose pieces that will compliment the architecture of your home.
The backyard is a totally different story. This is where you entertain, where your family gathers, your children play or you just chill out after a long day. You can create a landscape that accommodates your particular interests. You can start by sharing your ideas with your landscaper and considering others that he may come up with to develop a focal point for your landscape. You will be surprised how easily plans fall into place from there.
