Landscapes emerge through a creative process that relies on the use of 2D renderings to convey the details of every design. 2-dimensional drawings offer visual connection between existing elements and transformed elements within the landscape.
In section and elevation drawings, changes in elevation are easily diagrammed and demonstrate site lines and spatial qualities. Massed plantings reveal the landscape as a collection of texture, color, and form along the ground plane.
Plan drawings reveal the form and unity of a landscape as it connects different spaces through force lines. Similarly, plans reveal the ground plane as an arrangement of negative and positive spaces, and composition of color.
