Show Notes

In this episode, we talk the basics of attractive design.  Use these design basics to increase your curb appeal and make your yard pop!


  • Visual Aesthetics
    • Ensures pleasant experience
    • Desirable place

Links for today’s episode:

this is the aesthetic ecosystems podcast

I’m Ben Hale your virtual design guide

to help you and your family have a

healthy beautiful landscape with less

work what’s up and welcome to episode

five of the aesthetic ecosystems podcast

today we’re talking about good design

principles for low maintenance yards

really today we’re not gonna be talking

a whole lot about the low maintenance

aspect of things and how to save time in

your landscape instead what we’re gonna

do is talk more about how to have a good

design something that looks beautiful

something that is appealing to the eye

maybe somebody walking down the street

or even just you yourself would love to

look at and it’s something that’s kind

of an artistic landscape or a beautiful

landscape or even just an appealing

landscape there’s all sorts of levels

here of course where you can have this

highly curated landscape that is kind of

a hidden gem in itself or you can have

just a landscape that’s welcoming and an

opening space for people that come to

visit you whatever it is good design

really goes a long way toward changing

the space around you your property and

how it makes you feel how it makes a

visitor feel and how it enhances your

house and your your overall property so

let’s get right into it today then the

two buckets we’re gonna really talk

about our individual aesthetics so what

makes the landscape your yard appealing

to yourself and to other people and

secondly we’re gonna be talking about

functional design so what makes a

landscape work what makes it where it’s

not just this hassle the way it’s

designed to navigate around to get

around and to use functionally for your

house I love talking about this stuff

it’s a lot of fun just to have to really

have a cool design coming up with the

design for each individual property is

something of a prime

but it’s an enjoyable process if you do

it properly and and really you can

discover something you didn’t think

about when it comes to designing a

landscaping having a beautiful space so

this is kind of like carving the you

know chiseling out the rock tick to get

on to the underlying beautiful statue

underneath so you you don’t really know

where you’re going to start off with it

when you’re redesigning a landscape or

coming up with a brand new design but

the whole process altogether once you

get there you end up with something

beautiful and something worth cherishing

and prized so when it comes to visual

aesthetics the overall intent here is to

ensure a pleasant experience for

yourself you’re living there right you

and your family how do you have a

pleasant experience with your landscape

it’s not just something you walk across

on your way in and out the door it’s

where you live life if you have a good

landscape and so how do you enhance that

space to feel welcoming to you to feel

comfortable to feel relaxed and and to

have a pleasant experience in your yard

so you want to be there more often you

want it to be a desirable place you want

to have sometimes you even want it to

have a sense of place or a sense of

being so what’s the character of your

landscape that helps define you as a

person or your family or helps enhance

the way you feel about yourself so so it

might sound like a stretch but really

your landscape can be a reflection of

you and your personality so what you

make of your landscape can really

reflect who you are or what you feel

about your space there are two really

key important pieces that I want to

highlight for good visual aesthetics

when you get really into a design

landscape design there’s a lot more a

lot more elements that you could we

could talk about here but for the sake

of time and also for the sake of

simplicity I wanted to highlight two

specific characteristics and then we’ll

kind of talk about a few others

well but these first two are really

important and those are unity and form

they kind of play hand-in-hand so I’m

gonna try and tease out the differences

between these two characteristics but

without unity and without form you don’t

have a good landscape design there are

several other aspects as well such as

order and we can talk about those maybe

in a later episode but for now I want to

highlight unity and form so unity is is

what it means to have a cohesive design

plan so something that’s not just a

random use of elements we’re not talking

about you know a couple of trees that

you buy here and there and a couple

shrubs you buy here and there and throw

in your ground when they’re on clearance

at the local grocery store which fair

enough I’ve done this before so I’m not

calling you out necessarily to make fun

of you I’m just making fun of you with

myself a cohesive design plan is

something that’s thought out

holistically and laid out so your whole

space has a feeling of togetherness

that’s what unity is so some examples

are some characteristics of unity are

something like symmetry or asymmetry so

if you think a way to think about a lot

of this stuff is to consider art work

and symmetry can be the reflection of

colors across a composition when you’re

talking about your landscape or a piece

of artwork the reflection of structure

across your composition as well so it

could be the repeated use of certain

types of trees or the use of different

colors of blooms throughout the year and

and this visual elements such as the

structure of your plants or the color

can pull your design together so it

looks like one unified space you can

also similar to this as balanced so

you could have and this can even be an

asymmetrical designs as well but having

balance where you’re again having

elements across the place and trying to

draw your whole landscape together using

balance by putting certain elements

across your design to where it looks

visually balanced and this is kind of

tough for me to define here but

basically when you’re looking at a

completed design it doesn’t look like

one side is for lack of a better term


so you don’t want it to look like a

wedge right if we’re talking about

physical structure where you have you

know a bunch of small plants on the one

side of your design and a bunch of trees

on the other side so it would look kind

of weird so you want it to kind of

balance out somehow to look more unified

similarly you wouldn’t want to do the

same thing with texture or color where

you would you wouldn’t want to have a

bunch of pink roses on one side of your

design and then a bunch of grass on the

other side without anything tying the

place together so that’s what balance is

when you’re talking about your landscape

and you want to have unity a lot of

times the way you do this is using your

plants but you can also use hard scape

elements so architectural ‘hey how can

you enhance your landscape using hard

scape elements whether this is your

pathways throughout your landscape or

using some of the architecture of your

house and making sure that architecture

is also balanced through your landscape

in certain elements you can also have

unity with geometry so making sure your

design is consistent across your

landscape when you’re using the layout

of your garden beds so you want to have

your garden beds follow a similar

pattern across your site so this could

be you could have a curvilinear garden

plan where you have kind of arcing

arrangements throughout

site or you could have circular plan or

angular plans but you want to make sure

you stay consistent across your site for

the sake of visual unity so you don’t

want to have something that’s you know

you don’t want to have some circular

garden beds on one side of your

landscape and then another part you have

these harsh angular garden beds because

it doesn’t give a cohesive feel this is

a whole landscape design so that’s in a

nutshell what unity is we could talk a

lot more in depth about this there’s

whole chapters of landscaping books on

this stuff

but in a nutshell that’s essentially

what unity is and now we’re gonna talk

about form and this might sound a little

bit similar because it kind of is but

there are some nuanced differences about

form that are really important to have

both unity and form manifests themselves

in your landscape so going back unity is

your cohesive design plan so looking

holistically at your landscape and how

it’s planned

do you have conscious use of certain

design elements across your landscape so

unity is really about your your symmetry

or your patterns of structure as well as

balance so visual structure is what I’m

talking about form is the implementation

of a theme so your repetition throughout

the site the example I gave earlier with

the the types of garden beds the certain

shapes you have that’s kind of touched

and on form and unity so with unity

you’re making sure that you use the same

design in a balanced manner across your

landscape so you have some garden beds

that maybe if you’re staring at your

landscape some on the left some on the

right and maybe some in the middle kind

of pull your whole landscape together

the form piece is about repeating that

same consistent theme across those

garden beds so that that curvilinear

pattern or the angular pattern that we

were talking about

so the unity is using it across the

landscape in a balanced manner and form

is using it where it’s repeated

throughout and it kind of pulls

everything together as well I feel like

I’m not making this 100 percent clear so

let’s talk about in an example of a good

painting so a common popular painting

that a lot of people like is Van Gogh’s

posts Impressionists starry night

painting if you if that doesn’t ring a

bell you probably have seen it it’s a

kind of you know painting with some

swirly stars in the top and in a

beautiful landscape when we’re talking

about the unity of that painting there’s

a general overall composition and some

good use of focal points so you look at

the stars in the sky and then there’s

this structure in the front a big

towering piece that kind of draws the

eye as well but it kind of is all pulled

together into one good composition they

kind of play off each other with color

difference of colors and that sort of

thing I’m not an artist here it’s

probably showing through but I’m trying

to at least give you a general idea when

you’re talking about form there’s a use

of a similar artistic style throughout

the painting so in the general posts

impressionist style of Van Gogh he it’s

a very similar type of painting

throughout I actually don’t even know

what what to call it more than he it’s

it’s very impressionist style to me and

and so it would be odd to use if he had

used some pastels on one part and some

watercolors on the other part and then

maybe some some lead pencil in the

bottom so that wouldn’t be good for him

because it doesn’t repeat the similar

elements throughout and use a similar

composition so hopefully that helps kind

of drill this home that when you’re when

you think about them together is really

the most important piece anyway so so

when you think about both form and unity

how are you balancing out your landscape

design and how are you feeding patterns

throughout to give it a general theme so

it feels like a well-designed space

that’s welcoming and you want to be

there because it doesn’t feel juxtaposed

or contradictory so form unity both are

very important hard to describe

separately and so just kind of think

about having a design that plays well

together so you repeat elements

throughout your design you think about

your whole space when you’re designing

instead of thinking about individual

elements first you want to start big and

then work your way small okay

so those are the very important ones

unity and form let’s talk about some

other cool stuff too that really helps

with the visual aesthetics of your site

so individuality is very important when

you want to have a unique space and

that’s essentially what that means is is

the uniqueness of your design is what I

mean by individuality so when you’re

thinking about individuality how can you

use your own style

maybe it’s your interior decorating

style how can you use that to reflect in

your landscape design so so thinking of

what inspires you the types of patterns

you like and how can you use that in

your landscape and most likely there’s

some sort of landscape design that’s

been done that fits the the type of

design that appeals to you so definitely

get out there and look at stuff when

you’re kind of looking for landscape

ideas this is a bit of an aside here

definitely check out house H bow use

easy calm they have a ton of different

ideas about landscapes you can go check

out like cool things that people have

done and they just kind of post their

pictures there’s a ton of designers on

there that are doing cool stuff and they

that’s part of their marketing

strategies is they want to show all

their great designs and the cool stuff

they’ve done so it’s a great place to

look for inspiration it’s kind of

now it’s kind of like Pinterest where

you can go on there and look at ideas

and kind of save ideas for later so

definitely check it out if you’re

looking for inspiration and kind of sift

through a bunch of the different designs

you see there so back to individuality

so individuality is again how can you

reflect what appeals to you yourself

through your landscape to create a

unique landscape that is an inviting

space for you and also kind of shows a

bit of your personality to people that

come and visit as well

okay next let’s talk about inspiration

what do you want your landscape to help

you feel or what do you want a visitor

to feel when they come to your landscape

so landscapes have the capability of

evoking emotion it’s a it’s a patchwork

of art that you can make with your

landscape and so when somebody comes to

visit your landscape or when you come

home to visit your landscape what do you

want to feel when you get there do you

want to feel relaxed do you want to feel

calm do you want to feel like you can

escape somewhere so these are all

different emotions that you can feel

that can be a vocht through your

landscape some other ideas so like I

mentioned do you want to feel like you

can escape in your landscape so even if

you live in say a northern climate you

could design something like a tropical

getaway there are a lot of plants that

have a certain character that can give

the feel of something tropical even

though you’re in a northern colder

climate maybe not in the middle of the

winter right everything would probably

be a bit Brown and barren but but during

the growing season you could have

something that’s kind of like your own

little tropical escape it’s actually

really cool the in Cincinnati where we

live the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical

Garden they have a beautiful arrangement

of gardens and different areas that

house the different animals they’ve

designed it to give you a different feel

and so they have a an area called Jungle

trails and

this space they designed they did it

very well where you walk into this space

and they’ve used plants that can grow in

our climate in zone 6 which gets pretty

cold in the winter and but during the

warm seasons this space looks like the

jungle you feel like you’ve walked into

the jungle and so you can design your

space with plants that are well adapted

to your region that don’t require tons

of work but due to their shape in their

patterns you can feel like you’re in a

different space so you can escape so do

you want to feel like you can escape or

do you want to feel relaxed if you want

to feel relaxed think about certain

plants that maybe can block out certain

views other plants that might you know

whisper in the wind they based on how

they how they blow in the wind they

might make some noise something that can

attract birds maybe to to calm and feel

calm and relaxed with the sounds of the

birds think of things like that what do

you want with your landscape how do you

want to feel and what type of plants or

what type of space would help you feel

that way and there are all again there’s

all sorts of landscapes that have

already been designed to have oak these

emotions maybe you want something that

feels wild or adventurous so think about

designing a wild space for your yard

that you can kind of hide away in and

when you go to a certain part of your

yard and it might help you feel that way

it might be a little bit of an adventure

to go there maybe you want something

that’s fresh feeling so think of like

some sense that different plants could

have throughout different seasons and

maybe just a look that’s more vibrant

and invigorating you can do all of this

you can have this inspiration through

your landscape by designing it in

specific ways what about character so

when I mean character and I think about

what story could your yard tell this

might seem like a stretch again but

think about going to like a tea garden I

don’t know if you’ve ever been to a tea

garden which is an Asian gar

design style that takes you on a journey

through the landscape and actually tells

the story of history as you go through

the landscape is part of the ritual of

the tea ceremony so it’s really cool

stuff actually to read about if you’re

randomly interested in a tea garden but

the point I’m trying to make here is

your landscape can have character it can

tell a story and maybe it won’t be like

a well designed plot sequence like you

see in a movie but it can still convey

something to the visitor I can convey

something to you when you come home to

it so what story can your yard tell this

could be a story of history so you could

include certain historical elements so

you see this in very classical garden

designs you feel like you’re part of

history when you go there it could be

thought-provoking so it could kind of

convey some meaning through the

landscape so there could be some

symbolism in what how the gardens are

designed or even some of the elements

that you place in the gardens

it could be reflective or even

nourishing so nourishing what about an

edible landscape right so the story it’s

telling you is that this land provides

for you so you could have certain fruit

producing trees you could have

decorative gardens interspersed with

vegetables and there are plenty of

really attractive vegetables actually

that’s in case you’re wondering

but overall yet

the character of your landscape can

really help you escape again can help

define the space to where it’s something

inviting something appealing to the eye

brings in visitors and tells the story

to them and conveys meaning and leaves a

lasting impression on people that visit

your landscape okay so in general that’s

why I wanted to cover for visual

aesthetics when you’re considering

design so just to kind of recap things

here we talked about most importantly

unity and form and they kind of play on

each other they’re kind of similar in


waise it’s really hard to have good

unity without good form in good form

without good unity so thinking of them

both together since I had spent so much

time trying to define the difference of

them since they’re both important think

of them both together is how does your

site feel cohesive how does it kind of

meld together as one space one

individual space that is yours and how

does it appeal to the eye how does it

feel a well balanced and have a general

theme throughout to to feel like a

welcoming space in a well-designed space

aside from unity and form there are some

some kind of fun characteristics you can

consider when developing your design and

those are how does how can your

landscape have individual reality how

can it be unique how can it have its own

style that maybe reflects how you feel

or maybe reflects some of the space

around you what your region is but how

can it just be different than the

general postage stamp yard that you see

inspiration how do you want to feel when

you come to your landscape what emotions

should your landscape convey to you do

you want to feel happy do you want to

feel refreshed do you want to feel

invigorated do you want to feel calmed

or distressed these are all things you

can design your landscape to help you

feel a certain emotion well quarter what

sort of character do you want your

landscape to have what sort of story can

your yard tell you can you convey a

certain feeling or thought through your

landscape to visitors and to you when

you come home so this is a lot of fun

stuff here actually when you really get

into the nitty-gritty of coming up with

a new design this is the stuff I love to

do actually sometimes I feel like I

enjoy the design process the the

implementation process although as I say

that I realize I also love just being in

a great beautiful landscape so a lot of

fun to all this stuff I hope you feel

that way at least and let’s get in now

to functional

it’s really important to have a

functional landscape because with even

with a visually pleasing an

aesthetically pleasing landscape if you

don’t have a good functional landscape

if you miss the function part it’s not a

pleasant experience once you’re in the

landscape so it might be nice to look at

but it might be just a pain in the

behind to actually live there and you

don’t want something like that because

it’s going to irritate you it’s gonna be

something that is more of a burden than

a benefit so you want to make sure you

have this functional piece right so when

we’re talking about functional design

what we’re saying is you would ensure

you have a practical design does it make

sense how you’ve designed your landscape

does it provide value to you in the ways

you need to have your landscape used is

it a usable space for you and your

family so think about like what do you

want to do in your landscape does it

have to have certain access points does

it have to have certain space for

relaxing or for playing those are all

functional pieces that you want to make

sure you include in the design process

so again without the functional pieces

you can’t use your landscape properly so

the the first and most important piece

for me is accessibility can you properly

access your landscape one of the most

irritating pieces but really often

poorly done pieces in landscape design

is access I believe so a great example

of this is the typical front yard front

door pathway if you look at most houses

especially the ones built mid-century

they have these pathways that lead from

the driveway to the front door so this

is the welcoming pathway to your front

door to welcome guests to bring you home

after a long day’s work and generally

they’re about two feet wide it’s hardly

wide enough for one person to walk down

so if you have a group of visitors

coming to visit you or say it’s just a

mother in her her you know two-year-old

kid it’s a difficult access

point four even just two small people to

walk down a pathway to come to your

front door so it’s almost like you’re

restricting your access through your

pathway and this is where it’s really

important to have a space that feels

welcoming to bring people into your

space and also is just comfortable to

navigate that’s the big thing with

accessibility as well is do you have a

pathway again to kind of go off this

theme of the front yard path since it’s

so poorly done so often does it directly

access your front door in a way that’s

visually pleasing but also doesn’t take

you far out of the way so so often these

pathways also like going a big wide loop

or something where most of the time

people end up just cutting across the

grass anyway and then you end up with a

dirt patch so need to make sure your

accessibility is done properly where you

can navigate what you need to do it

feels comfortable to do so at the same

time and it feels welcoming now–don’t

since we use the front door example in

the front yard pathway make sure you

don’t forget the side house the back of

the house anywhere you need to access on

your landscape what needs to be paved

what doesn’t need to be paved but what

needs to be open for access as well most

often times they’re designed to narrow

and to indirect so make sure you get

those both right in addition make sure

they’re direct clear routes make sure

they’re open and inviting and lastly

make sure to if there’s any place on

your landscape that needs access from a

wheelbarrow or a truck or some sort of

delivery vehicle that you can do so

without inhibition you don’t want to

have to every once in a while make some

sort of delivery but you can’t get there

and then you need to carry it by hand or

whatever a long distance just because

you didn’t plan it properly so make sure

that’s planned and this could mean two

if you have a backyard that’s fenced

make sure you have a part of it that

opens wide enough to fit something back

there if you ever need to access it okay

enough about access

let’s talk about practicality this

sounds like exactly what it says is your

landscape practical for the UC one again

a lot of times with very well designed

landscapes visually they get the

practicality piece wrong so make sure

you have a practical landscape something

that your family wants to be part of and

it’s easy to be part of most importantly

so does it fit the needs of your

lifestyle if you have a very active

family outdoors

do you have something where you have

space to be active does it have the

right amount of space do you have play

space for your kids

so whatever sports or whatever they want

to play do they have the space to do it

if you have young kids do you have space

that inspires the imagination it allows

them to explore in to have an

imaginative play throughout is there a

space for relaxation with this it also

goes entertainment so do you have

somewhere you can relax maybe that’s a

bit more secluded but you also have some

place that’s open and welcoming for a

larger group for entertainment for both

of these types of places especially in

warmer climates or where it gets warm

during the summer

make sure these relaxation entertainment

spaces have proper shade or proper cover

in case of weather do you have the right

amount of storage in your landscaping

and good access to it as well is it

convenient to access your storage but it

isn’t a space where it’s not going to be

you know right on top of your

entertainment space make sure it’s

somewhat secluded but not so far removed

from your landscape where it’s a burden

to get there and then you don’t want to

do the the maintenance that you need to

do do you have the right water and

electric access these are often

overlooked points too so you could even

it could even influence where your

garden might be designed you’re certain

Gardens that require maintenance of

water or electric it could influence

where entertainment spaces are located

so make sure you either establish the

right water or electric accesses or

design the right spaces close enough to

these access points so the last bit here

with functional design I want to touch

on very important as well is compliance

so make sure what you’re designing meets

local building and zoning codes as well

as HOA requirements if you live in an

HOA it’s very important to do this stuff

because once you establish the landscape

it can be a costly process and it can

also cost a lot if you require to remove

stuff or pay fines for not doing things

properly so when you’re talking about

local building and zoning codes

depending upon where you live whether

it’s a town or a city or a Township or

an unincorporated space there’s

different levels of requirements for

each space so make sure you check with

those different municipalities to make

sure that you’re doing the right thing

before you actually go and establish

your landscaped plans

similarly there’s sometimes multiple

levels you need to talk to so for a city

if you live in a city for example you

may need to check with your city you may

need to check with your HOA you may also

need to check with your County so make

sure you’re doing the right checks based

on what you’re designing so that you

have the right checks in place at all

the necessary spaces so you’re not fined

or you’re not required to move or tear

down something in retrospect that pretty

much wraps it up for what you really

need to focus on for a good design so if

you stick to these good designs

principles when you’re designing your

landscape or when you’re talking to a

designer these will pretty much cover

the base of having a pretty good outcome

for your design there’s a lot more we

could talk about here for sure but this

covers the basics I want you to go take

action and if you’re thinking about

designing a space just think think big

picture first then kind of drill down

even if you’re just planning on putting

in a garden make sure you think big

picture first how does it fit into your

overall landscape or your long-term

vision of your landscape first before

you go and take action

okay now it’s time to talk about the

launch party guys excuse me not party

but partay the launch party is for the

first two months of the show from March

have some fun to help spread a war

spread the word about the show I really

appreciate your enthusiasm and interest

in this show and I want to get you guys

involved and have some fun while we’re

doing it so this is a chance to have

some fun too for us to get connected to

win some prizes and let’s talk about the

prizes before we talk about what we’re

doing so what are the prizes weakly I am

offering a free consultation with me Ben

Hale which is normally a $99 value so

one person each week that gets involved

in the launch partay gets a free

consultation I’m also giving away a free

offer for one of my ebooks ten ways to

get more beauty with less work which is

the $19 value next the grand prize there

is only one of these we’re giving away

through this whole launch party so at

the end of the launch partay the organic

lawn care manual by Paul Tookie

so Paul Tookie himself has offered to

give away one free book to a lucky

winner that’s getting involved in this

launch party and this book is all about

how to manage a healthy lawn from

anything from a golf course style on to

your low maintenance lawn which of

course is something I prefer here on

this show right I own this book I’ve

read this book multiple times I’ve give

it away it’s a kind of a tattered and

worn version that I have and I use some

of these practices in my own lines so I

love this book and I highly promoted as
