While designing a plan, it is necessary to take into account the topographic peculiarities of the territory.
Detailed data on hilliness, presence of natural sources of water, utilities, existing buildings and large plants necessary to preserve and fit into the future landscape give the opportunity to be quick on the uptake while designing the project and make the future works safe, excluding the possibility of damage to the sewer or gas pipeline.
A planting plan shall be drafted separately; it includes the entire flora from ranging lawn
to large trees.
Planting of large-sized trees is one of the most important stages of creating a landscape design.While planning greenery, location of
paved pathways and plots should be also considered
. Their length, width and tortuosity, as well as the type of coating (gravel, tile, stone) should be taken into account. The required amount of materials should also be calculated.If it is necessary to lay new utilities (for automatic watering, lighting) a separate plan should be developed.
It takes into account not only lying of pipelines and electric wirelines but also each output point.
Watering includes the following output points: sprinklers, irrigators, equipment for drip irrigation, drainage holes, drains and storm water drains.In terms of lighting, it is necessary to specify the location
of main lanterns, pathway lights, decorative lighting and underwater lights. A place for a distribution board or panel from which the entire lighting scheme will be supplied should be also stipulated.
