Beautiful Long Island Landscape Design
Long Island is home to a nearly million-acre patchwork of residential, commercial and municipal properties interwoven with lush green grass, wooded nature preserves and vibrant parkland between sprawling shores. Stretching from Nassau County’s western suburbs to Montauk Point on the East End, and famed Gold Coast up north down to the South Shore, it is a diverse and complex hodgepodge, replete with a dizzying array of flora and terrain.
As such, landscape design is a thriving industry, with professionals using their expertise to beautify these grounds and create tiny slices of paradise within your front and back yards.
Let’s take a comprehensive look at Long Island landscape design, from the background of those whose mission it is to make your dream a reality, to the intricacies involved in bringing such visions to life.
Experts in the Landscape Design
While the terms “landscape design” and “landscape architecture” are often used interchangeably, the two are not, in fact, one and the same.
Both encompass the restoration, improvement, and beautification of outdoor areas surrounding homes, businesses, and city streets. Both also incorporate elements of strategic planning, land management, environmental science, art, and culture in devising and executing such projects. Landscape architecture chiefly pertains to large public outdoor spaces, however, whereas landscape design typically focuses on smaller residential properties.
The two fields take into account the aesthetic and functional aspects of lawns and gardens, paying special attention to “soft” living elements, such as plants, as well as “hardscape,” like bricks, stones and pebbles.
Landscape architects must possess a bachelor’s and/or master’s degree in the field from a university, and are required to have passed the Landscape Architect Registration Exam, as mandated by most states. Landscape designers may have undergone similar training and hold a degree in plant-related subjects—such as horticulture or botany, for example—but state licensure is not a requirement. The international trade group, the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), provides a code of professional standards for members and a rigorous, peer-review certification program, too. If any “earth-moving” construction is needed, a landscape contractor must be brought on to complete wall building, electrical work, or other, more technical functionality.
Projects typically include an initial on-site assessment of the property to gather information on soil type, pre-existing vegetation, dimensions, and overall shape of the land. This informs later decisions as work progresses.
