Landscape Design Techniques for Large Yards

Best Practices for Large Yard Landscape Design 

Large yard design imageLarge yards are great. They have plenty of space, which means plenty of opportunity for creativity. Sometimes it can be hard to decide what to do with all this space. Too many things can make the yard seem overstuffed, too little can make the yard seem sparse. Large yards require careful planning and execution to optimize your landscape design opportunities. Fallas Landscape specialized in landscape design for yards of all sizes. Let’s talk about some common techniques and best practices for designing a large yard.


The first thing you have to do with a large yard is create a highly detailed plan and layout. Large yards need to be properly spaced out to utilize the full size of the area. Dividing your yard out into specific areas help to give the design a more cohesive feeling. Think of these areas as separate rooms, like a dining room, a garden room, a relaxation room, or a playroom for the kids. The possibilities are endless. By planning out your large yard landscape design, you can get exactly what you want. Let’s say you want your yard to be perfect for entertaining guests, but also fun for your kids to play in. You can have a dedicated outdoor kitchen with a large patio for adults, and then a large area of open lawn for the kids to play in. Tastefully placed trees and plants can enclose the area and offer privacy. This is just one example of what you can do with a large yard.


One technique for large yard landscape design is implementing a focus piece to bring everything together. A pool or an aquatic feature like a fountain, are good examples of a yard centerpiece. Maybe you’d prefer a tranquility garden or relaxing gazebo. As always, we take care to create a landscape design that matches your vision, so just let us know how you envision your yard.


Since you have a large yard, you can experiment a little more with palette and theme than you could with a smaller yard. By diversifying your landscape design, you can create a visually appealing area that doesn’t overstimulate. The landscape design experts at Fallas Landscape can help you decide on the best theme and palette to complement your home and your yard.
