Domingo landscaping plans and project garden design. This is my first Domingo landscaping project in my own back yard. I love the Domingo Themed Fairy Cottage Garden, I've always admired the excellent craftsmanship. I am trying to replicate the Fairy Cottage Garden in my own garden. The Architectural Gardens are wonderful also, and I would like to make my own garden similar to those in Domingo with Domingo stones, bricks, and cement.

I am a farm girl and would appreciate some directions on how to make the Domingo garden I have pictured in my head on the computer using the hard earth in my garden. Thank you.

What is the most difficult part about designing a garden, landscape, or even a home? Is it the problem, or the solution that presents itself most daunting? I guess the solution would be the most important step as to why one finds one's self stuck. Anyway, as you read, I will try to put my two cents in.

Definitely the right architect and/or landscape architect will be key. I have worked as the owner/architect on a few projects, but I certainly don't know the lingo. So I suggest that you spend time finding someone that does. They will know the "right" contractors, and material suppliers. Good thing about L.A. and it's huge population of skilled tradesmen and professionals is you can find anyone you need.

I am just curious as to how you would plan out a large landscaping project in the back yard. Have you done this before? If so, how did you go about it? And what did you use?

Generally, it is best to use local plants as much as possible. L.A. is a desert and if you can find plants native to the area, you will save on water and time in your plants. Otherwise, go to nurseries and buy the hardiest plants you can find.

However, you can't have everything. And definitely don't try and plant everything you can find. Decide on a style, and go from there.

Do what you have the time to do and can do without breaking the bank. That may mean no need for a water feature or fountain because you don't really have a need for it. However, having water so close is really great.

However, being realistic and having a plan B is always good for something that will break.

Okay, that's it for me. Time to go make a plan. :)

I always start out with a plan. It's what I do. I know what I want, as long as it is some sort of a plan, otherwise, I am off. My wife could draw a picture with a pencil and put it in a yard plan. It still would be a plan.

Do as you did, but start out with a dream. Find someone who could put that dream into a landscape or garden. From there, you can make a few plans. Design, then make a few design drawings. Measure, and design a scale model.

Then, I make a few more drawings and measurements. The end result is the blueprint of what you want. (And don't forget to have someone proof your drawings and blue prints before you start in the dirt)

There's a whole lot more to planning a yard, landscape, or home, but this is a start. You can figure it out from here.
