Landscape projects are big investments and will play a large role in the overall aesthetic of your property. So, when you invest in one, you'll want to make sure that it turns out just the way you want it to. To help ensure that it does, you should invest in a design rendering. Design renderings are visual previews of projects, and when you invest in one, you'll be able to get an idea of how your project will look when it's finished before it even begins. There are two types of design renderings to choose from: 2D and 3D. 2D renderings provide a two-dimensional, top-down view of a project and 3D renderings provide a realistic, in-depth depiction of your project which can viewed from various angles. 2D renderings are typically used for smaller projects while 3D renderings are usually the better option for larger, more complex projects.

2D design renderings will provide a top-down view of your landscape project.

2D design renderings, as their name implies, provide 2-dimensional, top-down views of landscape projects. This type of rendering will give you a good idea of how much space certain features will take up on your property and a general preview of how your project will look once it's completed. 2D renderings can be colored or utilize techniques such as shading to help create a more realistic view of the project.

3D design renderings provide in-depth, realistic views of landscape projects.

3D design renderings provide realistic, in-depth views of landscape projects. These renderings are 3-dimensional, and allow you to view your project from every angle. These renderings can replicate your property and show you exactly what your landscape project will look like when it's completed. They allow you to see how your projects will look with different materials or colors, and you can even use them to see how your projects will look at night!

3D renderings are great for projects such as the installation of patios, outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, and other hardscape features.

How do you know which type of design rendering you should use for your landscape project?

While both 2D and 3D design renderings are useful for landscape projects, there are certain circumstances when one could be better than the other. For smaller landscape projects, such as the renovation or installation of landscape beds, a 2D rendering will suffice. That's because you don't need to see every single detail, a representation of how much space the project will take up and what type of plants will be included with the project is generally enough to get a good understanding of how your project will turn out.

On the other hand, if you're investing in a larger, more complex project, such as the installation of various hardscape features, a 3D rendering is the way to go. This type of rendering will allow you to see how each element of the project will look, and if they all flow together. Because you'll be able to see every detail of the project, you can rest easy knowing that once you approve the design, your landscape project will turn out just how you expected it to.
