Jonite® When Details Matter


Landscaping Essentials

Landscaping is a method used for beautifying a given outdoor space. This is done by gardening, by sculpting and shaping the landforms, and by adding other elements or structures to enhance the area. It also falls upon landscapers to pay attention to natural elements and occurrences that might enhance or worsen the space.

Landscapers have the mixed skills of a gardener and an artist/architect/designer. He needs to be proficient in garden design, plant maintenance, and to a certain extent; ecology and landscape engineering. When a skilled landscaper is done with his job, the land should have achieved a certain amount of beauty and aesthetic appeal.

Plants For Landscaping

One of the most important materials for achieivng a landscaped environment is the various flora that grows in a specific region at a certain season. This not only pertains to ornamental plants, but to trees, shrubs, and grass as well.

Landscapers who work with flowers and plants take into account certain details such as plant appearance, for instance the color of the leaves and flowers. Plant height such as low or moderate (for hedges) or tall trees also play an important part in landscape design. Trees should be chosen according to the shade it will bring to a landscaped space as well. It is also important to determine plant species (deciduous or evergreen) when doing this type of project.

Shaping the Land For A Landscaping Project

To shape the land into aesthetic forms, a landscaper manipulates its natural form. He gets rid of unwanted terrain. He creates channels for water if the design requires it. He retains the desired elevation. Another way for shaping the land is to install man-made structures. These include bridges, arbors, fences, benches, and walls.

A useful product and a favorite for the beautification of outdoor environments is the Jonite reinforced stone gratings. These grates enhance the natural environment as it conceals and protects water canals and channels. Jonite also has stone grate products that are specially designed as protection for trees in hardscape areas. Thus landscaping is not limited to gardens and fields.
