Beautiful Landscapes Need Good Bones
Beautiful Landscapes Need Good Bones.
Beautiful landscapes need good bones. You have only to look around your own neighborhood to see the truth of that—some properties are more attractive than others. Generally, if you take the time to analyze why, you will find that the hardscape of the good-looking properties is well designed and nicely developed plus the landscaping is well married to those basics.
Good bones consist of well-designed and carefully planned hard materials that are in full partnership with the dimensions of the property. Hardscape, the bones, consists of the three-dimensional form of the property plus constructions that include patios, decks, walls, swimming pools, drives and walkways. ‘
