The Landscape Design Process

We like to walk through your yard while you explain to us what your goals are for your project. We will make recommendations, and then from there, we go into the actual design process.

Green Edge Lawn & Landscape, LLC works with a professional designer, when drawing up some of our more extensive designs. Usually most of our projects we design in-house.

We take many things into consideration when implementing a design: simplicity, variety, emphasis, balance, sequence, and scale.

Simplicity Best landscape design in central missouri

Simplicity or ‘simple designs’ allows you to focus on something familiar. An example of simplicity uses repetition. Often, we design several plants of the same variety to achieve this simple look.


Variety allows the designer to add the assorted colors and textures needed to make the design complete. Conversely, a superior design does not have too much variety that will make the overall landscape look confusing.


Emphasis draws attention to a particular area in landscape design. Therefore, the designer must use variety to draw attention to the area being emphasized, while less important areas receive less notice.


Balance sets the mood of your landscape. Symmetrical plantings (plantings which mirror each other) give a more formal feel.  However, asymmetrical plantings (plantings that use unequal sizes) give a casual feel.


Sequence causes your landscape picture to change gradually, which prevents anything startling that would cause the sequence to be lost.

Scale or proportion

Scale or proportion takes the size of the building and area to be landscaped and adjusts the plant size accordingly. So, we can make areas look larger or smaller just by changing the proportion to scale.
