Important Considerations For Outdoor Space Designing

Our cities today are moving towards rampant urbanisation in terms of construction of high rise structures and builder floors. These buildings may make our cities look beautiful however on minute introspection we will realise that face paced urbanisation has taken away our green spaces which lend us a breath of fresh air.

 

If you have luxury of a space in terms of terrace gardens and balconies then the urban concrete walls cannot hold you from having your own lush green space. Terrace garden designers can give an exclusive makeover to your barren terrace space.  

 

Before starting a terrace garden there are a few considerations that the home owner as well as the terrace garden designers needs to keep in mind. Being the leading terrace garden designers in Delhi NCR we are stating a few considerations that are relevant to the process of terrace garden designing. 

 

  • Additional Building Load : The very first consideration for terrace designers is the load bearing capacity of the structure. If you are constructing your house from the scratch then proper planning can be done in terms of the weight that your terrace garden would add to your building’s foundation. If you have an existing building then a proper analysis of the load bearing capacity is required in order to plan how much load can be added on your terrace.

 

  • Hardscape : Proper distribution of soft-scape and hardscape areas on your terrace is another essential criteria to keep in mind. For giving a complete look to your terrace garden - planning for the hardscape which covers your garden pathways and decking - holds an equal importance as planning for green cover. Outdoor flooring can also be made attractive by going in for mosaic flooring or wooden tiles for the deck. 

 

  • Outdoor Materials : Next challenge that the designer faces is the outdoor finishes. Outdoors are subjected to hard weather conditions.The challenge crops up in the form of restrictions on the materials and finishes that one can use. The materials and finishes should be aesthetically appealing to the clients, should do justice to our design and most importantly they should be low maintenance. One needs to be extra careful while sourcing materials and finishes for an outdoor space. 

 

  • Elements of a Terrace Garden : It's important to understand that a terrace garden is more than just grass and a few green plants. There are a several elements that can be incorporated to a terrace to make it an appealing feature of your house. One can add a terrace bar and barbecue for open air parties, a fireplace for enjoying cozy winter evenings, a waterfall to add an element of serenity. For covered sitting areas there are plenty of options for gazebos and pergolas in Delhi which in turn makes way for a covered outdoor sitting eventually increasing the usage of the terrace garden. Also, if one wants to indulge in shear luxury then plunge pool is a great idea. 

 

  • Effective Space Planning : While designing a space it's important for a designer to achieve effective space utilisation. Same concept needs to be followed with terrace gardens. Different zones like dinning, party area, open air sitting or a covered sitting can be designed on a terrace to make it more usable. 

 

  • The View : If your terrace is blessed with a beautiful view from the surroundings then its a perfect scenario. However if thats not the case then you can create your own view by going in for vertical landscaping. Our terrace garden designers hold an expertise in designing and installation of Vertical landscaping or Vertical Green Walls in Delhi. Green greenery give an aesthetic look to the otherwise barren walls. One can also choose between dense greenery or the regular hedges.
