The world consists of three different planes of space that affect the human experience. As we engage in the world, we are always surrounded by these three plans - horizontal, vertical and general expenses. As the volumes of these different planes change, the way we experience the space changes. In the landscape, for example, a closed space created by a dense canopy has a different feeling of open grazing. One space is shaded and dark, while the other is sunny and open. Our goal in understanding these differences is not to judge them. Rather, it is to accept that these different kinds of space experiments exist.
Provide intermediate spaces in the newly planted garden so that these open areas are not overgrown with weeds. One option is regular mulching with an organic material, such as pine fines, jagged leaves or double-hammered hardwood mulch. All of these mulches suppress weeds, appear attractive, retain moisture and protect and build healthy soil. Deficiencies can also be filled temporarily with annuals for a few years, provided they are not overcrowded or compete with permanent plantations. Do not over-populate plants during initial planting to create an "unstable landscape" (Figure 19-45).

A landscaping installation can be very simple or extremely complicated. Owners should evaluate the skills and equipment required for the installation and associated costs to determine if they are DIY projects or if the money and times would be better spent by hiring a professional. Permanent structures or large hardscape elements, including irrigation systems, outdoor lighting, stone walls, terraces, pools and patios, may be required skills that go beyond those of the average homeowner. When the job seems too big, call a professional landscaper and licensed. The state law of North Carolina requires that anyone using the title "landscaping contractor" be registered with the Landscape Registration Registration Board.
