I Received The Landscaping Plan! (Landscape Design Plan From A Local Pro For Our One-Acre Lot)

I received the landscape plan from the landscape designer yesterday! We met yesterday afternoon and went over the plan that he came up with for our one-acre lot, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. He included a ton of color (at my request, obviously 😀 ), evergreens, and drought-resistant plants. I never knew that there were so many colorful grasses! Here’s an overview of the whole plan that I received, which includes a layout showing our lot and where he suggests putting everything, a legend that lists what all of those plants on the drawing actually are, and pictures of most of the plants.

The whole goal with this was to give me a visual of something to work towards over the span of a few years. In other words, we’re not going to sign off on a plan and then have them come in and totally transform our whole property. This is going to be a very slow process that will evolve over the course of many years, and a lot of it will have to wait until we have our driveway in, the addition built on the back of the house, and my workshop built in the back yard.

But I can certainly start implementing some of the ideas for the front yard very soon. And this plan is so pretty that I just might have it framed and hang it on the wall of my studio just so that I can be motivated and inspired by it often. Here’s a view of just the lot layout without the legend and the photos of the plants.

There’s a whole lot to take in! I think I spent about two hours last night just pouring over the plan, looking at all of the little symbols, finding the symbols on the legend, finding the actual photos of those plants, and trying to envision everything in place.

Here’s a closer view of the legend, which is divided into annuals/perennials, ground cover, shrubs, and trees. He said that he generally doesn’t add annuals to a landscape design because those can always be added throughout the year as I see things in the stores/nurseries that I’d like to plant. So he just focuses on more permanent plants and features.

I spent a while last night looking up pictures of all of those things, some of which I had never even heard of (whirling butterflies? 😀 ), so here’s a glimpse of all of those things, in all of their colorful beauty…
