Sample design rendering produced by AI Landscape Design Stylist using original photo
Do you ever find yourself with a clear idea of what you want your backyard to look like, but have no idea how to make it happen? Maybe you're like me, dreaming of a tranquil Japanese-style Zen garden but feeling overwhelmed by the options and resources available. You could spend hours scouring online guides and visiting local nurseries, but even then, it can be challenging to distill all the information and make it relevant to your specific backyard.
That's where DreamzAR comes in. Our app provides powerful 2D and 3D landscape design tools, and we recently added an AI landscape design stylist to take your creativity to the next level. In this blog post, we'll explore how AI can help you bring your backyard visions to life, offering countless ideas tailored to your unique space.
Introducing our AI Landscape Design Stylist - your personal yard design assistant. With its help, you can take the lead in creating your dream landscape, or let the assistant take care of everything for you. Either way, it's always there to help you unlock your full creative potential.
How does AI Landscape Design Stylist work?
To get started with DreamzAR's AI Landscape Design Stylist, all you need is a clear photo of your yard. Ideally, the photo should:
Show most of the yard, with minimal distractions like your home, fence, or other elements you're not planning to redesign.
Be taken from a central vantage point that captures the entire yard or the portion you want to work with.
Be high-resolution and well-lit to provide the Stylist with the best possible view of your yard.
Once you have your photo, you're ready to start working with the Stylist. Whether you're starting from scratch or have a specific vision in mind, the Stylist will help you discover new ideas and refine your design until it's perfect. And with its user-friendly interface and powerful AI technology, DreamzAR makes it easy and fun to create your dream landscape.
This is where the AI Landscape Design Stylist really shines. It presents you with a wide range of options to choose from, starting with broader categories like "A Picturesque Garden in Small Backyard" or "Drought Tolerant Garden in the Large Front Yard."
Here are some design styles rendered for the original backyard photo.
The Stylist uses its powerful AI algorithms to generate new designs based on your inputs. You can generate as many designs as you like, and each one will be completely unique. Some designs may include elements you love, while others may not be exactly what you're looking for. The goal here is to generate as many options as possible, so you can find inspiration and refine your preferences over time. If you see something you love, simply save it to your list of favorites to revisit later.
As the Stylist generates new designs, a blend of new ideas will begin to take shape in your mind. This is a great time to start adding specific input options, such as what kind of hardscapes (e.g. masonry, walkways, pathways, pool) and softscapes (plants, trees, etc.) you'd like to incorporate into your landscape. By starting with broader options and iterating with specific inputs, you'll be one step closer to creating your ideal landscape design.
Manual Mask Mode
Up until now, we have relied on AI Landscape Design Stylist to select the best designs for the entire yard based on the photo you uploaded. However, there is a more advanced option available called "Manual Mask Mode" that allows you to have greater control over where the AI Stylist focuses its design efforts. This is especially helpful if you want to blend different design styles in specific areas of your yard.
With Manual Mask Mode, you can identify specific areas within your photo and apply different design options to each of those areas. For example, you could select a certain portion of your yard to have a Japanese Zen garden design while another area could have a more modern aesthetic. The possibilities are endless!
