what is scale
What is scale?
  • In order to make an accurate design, the plan must be drawn using actual dimensions
  • It would be impossible to draw the “life size” of the home, lot, plants, etc.
  • Therefore, plans are “scaled down”
  • Scale- a piece of drafting equipment that allows you to draw your plan accurately

How are bed patterns developed on a landscape site?
  • 3 major types of patterns:
    • 90 degrees to the home- compliments house and gives a symmetrical appearance
    • 45 degrees to the home- give an asymmetrical design
    • Curved lines- make bold arches
  • Viewer’s eye will follow the line
  • Use only one type of bed pattern in a design
  • On the house, the bed pattern should either begin and end 1/3 or 2/3 down the length of the wall
