Residential landscape design is the art and practice of improving the outdoor area of a home. People have landscaping done in attempts to improve the selling value of their home and simply to make the outside more appealing. The planting of trees, shrubs, bushes, hedges and grasses are important parts of home landscaping. In addition to the grass on your lawn, these botanicals can add visual interest, attract wildlife, provide privacy and more. Landscaping is both science and art, and requires good observation and design skills. A good landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction, and blends them accordingly.
