Landscaping refers to activities that modify the visible features of an area of land, and it is, in essence, an art form. It combines living elements, natural elements, and abstract elements to create an environment that is aesthetically pleasing and sometimes functional. Living elements, referred to as flora (plant life) and fauna (animal life), are established to foster life and beauty into a landscape design. Flora is produced through gardening techniques. Depending on the function of the landscape, the gardening aspect can be utilitarian or solely for the beauty of plant life. Fauna, for the purpose of landscaping, is created through plant life or physical attributes that invite animal life to the landscaped space. This includes feeders, small ponds, and plant life that attracts animal and insect life. Natural elements create a flow through the landscape space. These are land forms, terrain shape and elevation, bodies of water, etc. These attributes are crucial when creating an inviting space with an intended flow. Flora and fauna elements rely heavily on the natural elements of a landscape. The use of different soils and fillers as well as the use of natural irrigation change the way in which living elements exist in the space. Abstract elements such as lighting conditions and weather are less in the control of the designer, however play key roles in the other elements. The amount of natural light on shade-dwelling plant life can, for example, change the way it grows. The amount of rainfall can also effect plant and animal life. All of these elements are important when landscaping a space, but the tools you use are equally as important. Elite Metal Tools provides a wide range of industry-leading landscape edging.
