### Beginning the Design Process

Ms. Gripshover

Landscaping

Unit 7

Our Objectives
• Demonstrate the use of a scale.
• Describe how activities can be organized into goose egg plans.
• Explain the importance of bed patterns.
• Develop bed patterns for a landscape.
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 is a scale used in landscaping?
• Most landscape plans are 1/8” scale
• 1/8”= 1’ OR 1”= ???
• Practicing using a scale worksheet
How can activities be organized into goose egg plans?
• Goose egg plan- a sketch of rough ovals and circles on a drawing that shows the placement of activities in a yard
• This helps to separate a vast area into smaller rooms
• Remember the following:
• Quick and rough sketches are ok
• How will people be moving around the yard
• Use the FIS
• Practicing Goose Egg Plans
• Bed patterns- form a framework for the design
• Outline the location of where the shrubs, flowers, etc. will go
• Separates lawn from planting area
• Appears more organized
• Several Volunteers needed
• 2 for a lawn mower
• Several for plants
• We will set up the room like a yard and determine the importance of bed patterns
• 1st scatter plant throughout room
• 2nd put plants into bed patterns
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
