Landscaping Defined

By Gabriel Meriwether

Landscaping is a mixture of science and art. A landscape architect must have an active imagination to be able to visualize the changes that the land will need to make it aesthetically better. He/she must, also, have complete knowledge of the technical aspects of all the elements involved in the modification process. This knowledge will help make the land more eco-friendly and reduce costs where ever possible.

Landscaping your outdoors mean you are modifying and transforming your outdoor space to make it more beautiful, increase its aesthetic value and make it more energy efficient. In the process of modifying, the landscape designer works upon various elements of the piece of land, like its vegetation and/or adding other elements like a body of water (pond, aquarium etc), to make it more beautiful.

It is held that furniture reached America through the Ancient Egyptian civilization, from whence it travelled to Rome; from Rome to Europe and then, finally, to America. Furniture may have reached America last, but it is America and the Americans that started the trend for outdoor dinging.

Aluminum furniture is durable; light weighted, but, it can rust in humid conditions. Resin or plastic furniture is ideal for your garden. Wrought iron is expensive but, can resist extreme weather. Wood furniture cannot withstand extreme weather changes; therefore, it should only be bought for areas with mild temperatures.

The most common bistro patio sets are made of cast aluminum, wicker or wrought iron. The Cypress All-weather Wicker Bistro Set, the Lisbon Bistro Set etc and the Woodard Aurora bistro set are a favorite among customers.

Wicker, is not a material, it is in fact a rigidly woven pattern. Any material can be used to weave the pattern i.e. wicker such as resin, iron, wood etc. Wicker furniture is very elegant and beautiful to have for you are indoors, as well as outdoors.

A patio is an open space adjoined to the place in question. As the area is uncovered, you will need furniture that can withstand the changes in the weather.
