The Importance of Landscape Design

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 28 April , 2021

We might be biased, but we believe landscape design is an incredibly important part of life. To us, it’s more than beautifying your backyard and increasing home value. It’s something that makes life a bit more special and brings a boost of joy to each and every day. Here are a few reasons why we think landscape design is an amazing part of life.

Contributes to Well-Being and Quality of Life

There are numerous studies out there that prove, again and again, that having beautiful, natural surroundings can help with an increased quality of life. Your backyard can be a soothing place to relax, and a beautifully landscaped park can be a therapeutic place to go for a walk on a sunny day. Fresh air and the view of bright, healthy plants contribute to positive well-being for all of us.

Helps You Appreciate Your Surroundings More

By spending time in a beautiful place, you can live in the moment and appreciate your surroundings. It’s important every now and then to center ourselves and appreciate where we are in life, and landscape design allows us to do just that. A calm garden with blooming plants and a fountain can create a soothing and calm getaway, free of distractions.

Reconnects Us With Nature

Being outside in beautifully landscaped surroundings connects us with nature, which is an important part of the human experience. We’re not meant to sit inside all day staring at screens. Spending time outside simply enjoying the landscape is something that can be lost on us these days. That makes it especially important to carve out time to go for a walk outside. It’s easy to get motivated to go outside if you have beautiful landscape design all around you!

Connects Us to Other Cultures

There are many parks out there that feature plant life and landscape architecture from all around the world. For example, San Diego has the Japanese Friendship Garden, which features greenery, flowers, and design elements that celebrate Japanese culture. You can visit and enjoy the wonders of another country without even leaving your city! This is just one of many examples of landscape design connecting the world with other cultures.

Supports the natural life around us.

Landscape design can not only help our well-being but the well-being of the ecosystem around us. Fountains can become a watering hole for deer on hot summer’s day. Birdbaths allow our feathered friends to stay clean. Certain plants can provide pollen to bees to create honey, or feed hummingbirds their essential nutrients. Animals all around us depend on a thriving ecosystem, and by having landscaped areas with them in mind, we can contribute to that environment.

These are just a few of the incredible ways landscape design contributes to our lives and the lives of others. So if you’re considering revamping your surroundings through the wonders of landscape design, keep these reasons in mind! You’ll be doing more than just beautifying your space. You’ll be increasing the quality of life for yourself and those around you.

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
