We field a lot of great questions from the clients we work with. One of the more common ones we get is some variant or another of “Is Largo Md landscaping an art or a science?” It comes up often enough that we felt it would make a good article topic in case you’ve been wondering the same thing.
The first point to make is that there’s a difference between doing a small project like planting a flower bed or putting a few paving stones down to create a walkway between your driveway and your front door and a large scale landscaping project designed to fundamentally transform your property into a showplace.
In the case of those smaller projects, it’s all about the art and there’s really no science involved. You buy the materials or plants you like and you put them where you want them. Anything beyond that though, and science most definitely has a role to play.
Major landscaping problems tend to do two things: They solve a practical, often pressing issue you’re having where your property is concerned, and they beautify and enhance the value of your property.
So what are some of those issues? Well, it could be something like building a bridge across a stream that runs through your property, expanding your access to the land you own. Or solving a drainage issue if you’ve got standing water, especially if it’s pooling very close to your home after a hard rain. Or terracing your land to give you more useable space.
In all of those cases, there’s some serious science and engineering that goes into crafting a viable solution. Of course, artistry still matters a great deal. After all, nobody wants a retaining wall that’s an eyesore and no one wants a bridge on their property that sticks out like a sore thumb. What you need then, is a synthesis of art and science. You want an end result that solves whatever problem you’re having and enhances your property’s value by creating a unified aesthetic you’ll love.
