The question posed in the subject heading above is one we get fairly often. It’s easy to understand why. After all, if you’re interested in having landscaping done, you want it to look good. You aren’t going to want to pay for a new patio, retaining wall, or terracing and the strategic placement of flora and fauna if it’s not going to be aesthetically pleasing and enhance the value of your property.
It’s also certainly the case that if you’re just undertaking a very small project like building a backyard garden, planting a flowerbed, or installing a few paving stones, aesthetics are firmly in the driver’s seat and science doesn’t have much, if any role to play.
Having said that, if you’re planning more extensive landscaping, science is a very big deal. You can’t build and position a retaining wall properly without a careful topological survey of the land so you understand where and how water will flow and how to best utilize the retaining wall and the drainage system that comes with it.
Additionally, there are a number of different kinds of retaining walls and knowing which one to build requires a scientific approach to study the composition of your soil and the topography of your land.
In a similar vein, you can’t know what types of ground cover to utilize and where to locate it without understanding where the pipes that keep your house in the 21st century are located, and where your drain field is, if you have a septic system on your property.
The bottom line is that science and engineering both have a major role to play in larger landscaping projects, so ultimately the answer to the question “Is Silver Spring Md landscaping an art or a science?” is that it’s both.
