Landscape Design Symbols

In drawing a completed landscape design, designers use graphics and symbols, rather than words, to show many of the various components of the plan. Different graphics are used to indicate different types of plants, such as evergreens, deciduous trees, or groundcovers. Hardscape materials, such as brick, flagstone, and decking are also shown with different groups.

There are an endless number of different graphics that can be used to depict plants and hardscapes. What follows are some possibilities:
