Linear shapes emphasize the real and imaginary lines in the landscape and play an important role in the creation of small and large spaces. Draw the viewer's eye through the landscape by grouping plants or hardscape elements (Figure 19-24). The eye is unconsciously influenced by how the groupings fit and flow horizontally and vertically. Variety created through diverse and contrasting shapes, textures and colors is a feature of good landscape design. By avoiding uniformity, the variety reduces monotony in a design. Adding elements with contrasting qualities or contrast increases visual interest and increases viewer satisfaction with the design (Figure 19-25).
This Japanese eraser with a modest canopy is the right scale for this small front yard. Figure 19 - 38. This beautiful front yard incorporates ground covers like phlox, perennials like rosemary and shasta daisies, and tulip bulbs to replace the lawn. Figure 19 - 39. These children enjoy a natural play area made of rounds of trees. Figure 19 - 41. The yellow jasmine star (Trachelospermum asiaticum) growing on this lattice not only provides a wonderful scent, it filters out the view of the neighboring patio. Once the site has been analyzed, the activity list made, and the bubble charts drawn (Figure 19-35) to better locate the activities and the summer ments, the layout of the landscape can be determined.
It is not used if a view does not exist. Geometry is part of everyday life and influences the places where we live. A direct relationship exists between two objects on a plane. Because this relationship exists, a landscaper must pay attention to the architecture before placing new objects or creating new spaces. Regardless of the geometry chosen (rectilinear, curvilinear, radial, or tangent arc, for example), the space and the objects proposed must match the existing architecture (Figure 19-21-d). The first image is a bubble chart used to determine the best locations for the required activities and how much space these activities need, and to study the relationship and circulation between activities.
