Focal point, which literally means: the focal point. Each work of art should have a focal point, as the core message of the artist in art “audience” her. A work of art made without focal points, will look chaotic, meaningless or vague; pointless. Similarly, a work of landscape, when in a park, its elements, both hard scape and soft scape built without a focal point, audience’s eyes will be “confused”. Will lead the eye without purpose, thus the beauty of the message will be blurred, not clear.

For example, if we plant a whole garden with the same plant height, or the same color contrast, or with the mechanism is not clear where, the park will feel like a tree traders display or nursery, and even then if arranged neatly. Focal point of a garden can be in the form of soft scape, for example, towering trees, or trees that color contrasts with the other, or a tree that has a unique morphologies. In the form of hard scape, the focal point can be presented in the form of a waterfall pond, fountains, statues, columns, pergola, gazebo, lawn chairs, bird cages, bird bath, garden lights, even a path of interesting and artistically arranged can be a focal point is attractive.

Determination of focal points would be different, if compared to the various styles of the selected parks. A classic romantic courtyard may be compatible with Roman statue or fountain is appropriate. While a minimalist garden could use a similar tree-planting reps with very neat and geometric as a good focal point. For the tropical garden, even in terms of planting more natural look and freedom, the principle remains the focal point “is a must”.

Intensification a focal point can be clarified with a beam of light, the placement of different height or color selection is “shouting” than the surrounding. Waive your paradigm of all kinds of rules focal point of the “should”, any thing that you can enjoy the focal point to make a planned arrangement. Have fun with your imagination..
