Landscape Design Can Heal and Celebrate Life


Landscape design provides more than a nice backdrop. It is often used to celebrate life, provide a healing sanctuary and even support wildlife. A great example is the White Garden at Kensington Palace, planted to commemorate one of its move beloved residents – Princess Diana.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of her death this August, the public can now remember her by exploring the beauty displayed in the 12,000 plus white flowers and foliage planted in the garden, which was specially constructed to reflect her life, her style and her image.

“It’s a lovely tribute and certainly a nice way to give those who adored Princess Diana a way to remember her beauty and sophistication,” said Marc Funderburk, president of LandPatterns, LLC. “We have been fortunate as a landscape design firm to participate in similar projects, allowing us to positively impact many lives.” Read Post

5 FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A LANDSCAPE DESIGN COMPANY


Whether you are looking to make your home reflect your unique taste, or it’s simply time to spruce up the place, anyone who has embarked upon a significant landscape project knows it’s worth the time and effort to partner with a professional landscape design architect. The trick is knowing how to choose. Reading websites is interesting, but may not yield the information you need to make the best selection.

The truth is that not all landscape design companies are the same. Some will provide you with a fantastic result, while others will simply give you the cookie-cutter theme they like.

Residential Landscape Design – Putting ROI in Beauty


ROI and beauty are not words you typically see together. Yet, the truth is that professional residential landscape design provides both – increased beauty and a financial return.

Don’t just take our word for it. We have proof from other professionals:

Total Mortgage says good landscaping can add 10-15% to the value of your home:

“Landscaping is more than flowers and shrubs.  Upgrades can involve things like patios and decks, flowerbeds, barbecue pits, watering systems and plants of all sorts. As you enter into a landscaping project, you have plenty of choices about what kinds of upgrades to make.   The trick is to make improvements that prospective buyers want.  If you do, then your property value will rise.”  Read Post

Does Your New Home Reflect Your Cachet?


We have a new first family in the White House, a symbol for our country that is not typically altered – or is it? As the previous first family exits, the staff has approximately 5 hours to ensure that the incoming first family feels at home, meaning their personalities are reflected, the adjustable interiors of the White House are altered to suite the family dynamic, and every effort is made to ensure they feel comfortable. Even in the Oval Office, the rug is removed to be placed in the presidential library, and a new rug placed for the incoming president.

The outside can be altered; e.g., Michelle Obama’s garden, so that the new first family showcases their style and grace. If the White House can be altered to reflect the style of the new first family, think of all the items that can be adjusted in your new home to showcase your distinct design, starting with the outside of your home.

A beautiful, upscale home is marked not only by distinctive architectural elements, but also by a well-groomed exterior, complete with beautiful foliage, attractive furniture, and well-maintained walking paths, all of which join to create a cohesive, sophisticated look that instantly catches the eyes (and envy) of a passerby.

Marc Funderburk, President of LandPatterns, says, “A house without a great backyard is like a house with no furniture. It’s somehow incomplete.”

 

Imagine the possibilities and great times ahead if you had a backyard worth sharing with your friends and family. There are a lot of considerations when designing the perfect backyard party pad. Every household is unique and deserves its own unique landscape design.
