Why Your Yard Needs a Focal Point

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 2 September , 2020

Most interior designers will push for a focal point to highlight a particular room. However, what about the outdoors?

Providing a focal point to your landscaping can provide your property with a more coordinated and unified look while capturing and directing your guest’s view.

In this issue, the professional San Diego landscape designers with Juniper Landscape will talk about the importance of a focal point in your landscaping, and provide a few examples of items that can be re-purposed to fit the role.

If you’d like us to look at your yard and put together a plan that will definitely make your landscaping stand out from the others, we’d love to speak with you.  Just get in touch with us by calling (619) 334-9464 or sending an email.

Why does my yard need a focal point?

With the use of a focal point, you are guiding the perspective of a viewer to a particular location of your choosing.

For example, you can use a plant, object or container to smoothly direct attention either to an area of your yard you’d like to showcase or away from items you’d like to hide.

The main reasons for a focal point are to (1) direct the viewer’s attention and (2) provide your yard with a sense of order.

What can I use for a focal point?

The choices for focal points are literally limited to only your imagination.

We’ve talked before about obvious choices, such as gardens, pergolas, and fire and water features. Other good ideas are decks and patios, sheds, outdoor kitchens, or a refurbished piece of furniture.

For personalized ideas and help with your garden and yard, call Juniper Landscape Company.

    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
