Have you thought about adding curves in your landscape?
Sweeping curves and meandering lines can be an alluring landscape feature and can be used to soften the look a paved area, introduce a sense of movement and contribute to a naturalistic design.
Curved walkways are ideal for incorporating wandering lines to allow for a natural look and feel in your backyard. These walkways can take guests on a tour of your landscape, wind around trees or shrubs and give a sense of mystery.
Curved lines are an excellent option for softening the look of a paved expanse such as a patio. A sweeping curve on a patio edge will create an organic look that is more gentle on the eye than a straight edge. Repeat the curved edge of your patio in the layout of permanent seating, steps or the placement of a circular fire pit.
You could also consider a wide curve of a retaining wall gliding along the side of your property.
Here are more reasons to add curves to your yard:
*Curves lend a gracious air to a landscape
*Your eye cannot help but follow a curve
*Laying out a plant bed or walkway using curves invites people to explore
*Curves can soften a residential landscape that can often be saturated with straight lines
*Soft lines are more inviting
*Curved plant beds can also provide more ground area for plant growth than a straight edge
Embrace the curves ~ and create a landscape to escape in.
