Landscaping Trend: Mixing Mediums & Textures to Create Outdoor Works of Art

By: Gia Burt

"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak."

Have you ever heard that quote? It's a good one, often reserved for people who make a statement through their clothing choices or unique hair styles. We though, us true landscape designers, we're innovators and artists in our own right. We want to extend that quote-we want our clients to say who they are, to express themselves to their family, friends, neighbors and anyone who passes by with their landscaping. To think outside the box and kick things up a notch-because it's always more fun when you kick things up a notch right?

A basic artistic form is mixed media art. The process of utilizing different mediums, and textures to create something with more feeling and more depth. Something that hopefully is more pleasing aesthetically and well just different. Creating art in something that most people wouldn't think to, that sounds cool!
