In the foreground, the horizontal floor plan changes as the Chapel Hill gravel pavement meets the granite border. The border is always part of the horizontal mass plane. When the pavement meets the granite border, it begins to build the vertical plane. The vertical plane continues to grow with the increase in the height created by the plants. Paving also changes under the bridge to a gray slab tiling pattern. As we move away from the structure, the horizontal ground plane turns into crushed granite fines. Note that the gray color helps to create a transition between all these different elements. The large structure completely surrounds the user.
Here is a glossary of landscaping terms to help you get started. Do you want a deciduous tree above a pool? I know I do not do it. Is bamboo spread by rhizomes? Before planting bamboo, you might want to know it. Is it possible to espalier some varieties of pear or apple? YES, but not in Texas. All plants should not necessarily be within the confines of a bed. I have plants inside and outside my beds. I think it works best in natural landscapes or along trails. Use your imagination. And, whatever you do, make sure these front hurdles do not add a mustache to the front of your house.
Avoid these scenarios by looking at the main stem, where is the largest branch and where all the tentacles come out. This is the baseball, and that's what you want to meet, all the way through the surface. A good rule with plants is to dig to the actual height of the container in which it came from. It is a common myth that cutting grass shorter means you have to mow it less. This is not the case, and you can do more harm than good. If you scalp the lawn, this could result in a bare stain, which could make it too inviting for insects and / or vulnerable to disease. The key is to cut the lawn of different lengths throughout the year.
A landscape contractor must pass examinations covering soils, grading, plants and various other subjects. Be aware, however, that anyone who thinks they can do landscape work can settle in as a "landscaper", "landscape installer", or "landscape designer". Be sure to check the references, visit other facilities by the contractor, and check with the Business Ethics Office to make sure the contractor is licensed and bonded.
The way the sun affects the house and the site at different seasons greatly influences the overall design. The proper placement of plants is based on knowing the direction of the sun at different times of the day as well as at different times of the year. The yard should be observed throughout the day to determine areas that receive full sun (more than six hours a day), partial sun, and mostly shade. Understanding sun exposure helps us make design decisions such as planting trees to shade a patio in the summer or recognizing that putting a gargleden in an area that receives only partial sun causes little fruit when it comes time to harvest.
Our sensory experience also changes when the height of the aerial plane rises or falls with the canopy of trees, with steps or paths going up and down in the horizontal ground plane, and with the gradual transition that occurs when we move from a completely closed environment. Examples of aerial plans include canopies, suspended structures, awnings and parasols. In Figure 19-12, the head plan is drawn by a continuous lattice with a repeating pattern inspired by the carrots. The lattice that creates the air plane includes a colored plexiglass that projects a colorful reflection on the bridge.
