Why Are Plants Used in the Landscape?
Todays Objectives Describe the functional roles of plants in the landscape. Discuss the functional uses of plants in the landscape. Correctly identify and discuss the roles of each plant in the landscape located outside of the building. Individually observe your yard at home and make notes of the plants located there and the role that they play. You will present your findings to the class tomorrow!
What is Structural Framework? The way the yard is laid out. Dividing larger spaces into smaller spaces. Will direct viewer through the design.
How Do Plants Screen? Block unattractive views. Consider line of sight to be screened. Screens observed from a distance-taller & longer. Denser in areas where people walk by at slower speeds.
How Do Plants Enclose? Implied: -Create using small hedges. -Do not interfere with view. -Subdivide the landscape. Complete: -Use plants that will grow taller than eye level. -Limit view to only the enclosed area. Divide larger areas into smaller subspaces. Either implied or complete.
How Do Plants Frame? Plant groupings attract viewers eyes. Frame off-site views & incorporate them into the landscape.
How Do Plants Integrate the Landscape? Unify the landscape and tie it together. Blend the house and other structures into the landscape.
