Understanding the Differences Between Landscape Design and Garden Design

We all want to have a beautiful and functional outdoor space that we can enjoy—a place to escape the hustle and bustle of life in our outdoor oasis. Creating this space, however, is a time-consuming and daunting task. Thankfully, professional landscapers and gardeners can complete the planning and work necessary to bring your vision to life.

These professionals use landscaping and garden design to create your garden. The expert landscape designers at Hydroplants Kuwait have outlined the differences for your future reference.

What is Gardening?

Garden design, in its most basic sense, is the method of designing and planting a new garden. Similar to landscaping, gardening involves design, planning, and maintenance, but it generally focuses only on the plant life in a space.

Gardening involves growing plants and flowers, from planting a single plant to cultivating an entire variety of plants. It also includes growing and caring for plants in pots or in the ground. However,garden designers will not build your garden for you; you will need to go to a landscaping company to bring your design to life.

Gardeners often work with a landscape design team to incorporate the garden and plant life into the overall design plan.

What is Landscaping?

Landscaping is the process of altering your landscape (front or backyard) to transform it into your sanctuary. It involves incorporating design elements such as

  • Installing retaining walls
  • Pathways
  • Building small structures like pergolas, gazebos, and patios
    Installing water features and pools

Landscapers and Gardeners Working Together

However, gardeners only plant, weed, cultivate, replace, and harvest various plants. In contrast, the landscape team conceives and develops all other aspects of your outdoor space
