    Virtual Blooms: A New Era for Landscape Architecture

    The Importance of Understanding Landscape Designs

    Have you ever struggled to visualize how a landscape design will look and function in your outdoor space? It can be challenging to fully understand the scope and impact of a design plan based solely on 2D drawings or computer renderings, and some people may never fully grasp it. This lack of clarity can lead to disappointment and costly changes during the construction phase.

    At Beyond The POST, we understand how crucial it is to ensure that the final landscape design concept outcome meets your expectations and aligns with your vision. That’s why we offer a solution that enables you, as our client, to have a physical experience of your landscape designs before the construction process begins. By integrating virtual reality technology into our design process, we provide assurance and confidence that traditional methods cannot match.

    Walking Through Your Design in Virtual Reality

    Imagine stepping into your future outdoor space and exploring it from every angle. With our virtual reality experience, you can do just that. When you wear a VR headset, you enter into a realistic, immersive 3D representation of your landscape design. You can walk through pathways, admire the plantings, and even “sit” in the proposed seating areas.

    This immersive experience allows you to truly understand the scale and proportions of the design. You can understand how different elements relate to one another and how they fit within the context of your property. It’s like a virtual test drive for your outdoor space.

    The Benefits of Virtual Reality in Landscape Design

    Investing in a virtual reality walkthrough for landscape design may seem like an additional expense, but it is a worthwhile investment that can save you time, money, and frustration in the long run. Here are some of the key benefits:

    1. Accurate Visualization
      Virtual reality allows you to see your design in a 1 to 1 scale, providing a much more precise representation than traditional drawings or computer renderings. This level of detail enables you to make informed decisions on everything from layout to material selection and ensure that the design meets your expectations.
    2. Early Problem Identification
      By experiencing your design in virtual reality, you can identify potential issues or challenges before construction begins. This early problem identification can prevent costly changes or delays down the line. It avoids the “I wish I had known that would be that size or look like that.”
    3. Improved Communication
      Virtual reality also enhances communication between you, the client, and our design team. It eliminates the ambiguity that often arises when describing a design concept or envisioning the final result. With virtual reality, you can examine the space, while we see what you see, leading to a smoother and more collaborative design process. 
    4. Design Optimization
      With active links between your virtual reality tour and our modelling program, we can even make minor changes during our meeting, allowing you to see the results and impacts of your comments while immersed. You can experiment with different materials, colours, and layouts to find the perfect combination that suits your taste and preferences. This iterative process ensures you have a perfectly tailored final design to your needs.


    Virtual reality is revolutionizing the way we approach landscape design. It provides an understanding and confidence that traditional methods simply cannot match. By investing in virtual reality, you are investing in the future of your outdoor space. You can ensure that what is built is exactly what you want, saving you time, money, and potential disappointment.
