Hilton Head Landscape knows that understanding of the site is one of the chief essentials for successful landscaping. Different natural features like terrain, topography, soil qualities, prevailing winds and the system of native flora and fauna must be taken into account.
Factors in designing include objective qualities; such as:
• Climate and micro-climates; topography and orientation,
• Site drainage and groundwater recharge;
• Municipal and resource building codes for soils and irrigation,
• Human and vehicular access and circulation
• Furnishings and lighting,
• Native plant habitat botany when present
• Property safety and security, construction detailing, and other measurable considerations.
Factors in designing also include subjective qualities, such as:
• Genius loci (the special site qualities to emphasize);
• Client’s needs and preferences; desirable plants and elements to retain on site, modify, or replace, and available to use as borrowed scenery from beyond;
• Artistic composition from perspectives of both looking upon and being in the gardens;
• Spatial development and definition;
• Plant palettes in designed layouts, and artistic focal points for enjoyment.
Sometimes the land is not fit for landscaping. In order to landscape it, the land must be reshaped. This reshaping of land is called grading.
At Hilton Head Landscape our design and production staff is capable of overseeing the installation crews as well as hiring, coordinating and directing sub-contractors. For example, some larger jobs require work that is outside of the typical scope of operations such as major grading, masonry or carpentry work.
This ability allows the Hilton Head Landscape to tailor each and every project to the specific needs and requirements of each client. Not only does this allow us to create the best possible landscape for a given site, but it also simplifies the installation process for you.
