Well, because Google has the most detailed overview dedicated to Dark Themes UIs (using its products as examples).
Typos and other mistakes (sorry I did this on a rush 😁✌️
Tip 3 - the examples are on the wrong order)
Tip 7 - Text opacity = the medium emphasis in demo design is mistakenly written as 87% and not 60%.
Tip 8 - It should be : Shadows on dark themes don’t serve..
Dark Theme has many benefits:
• It can reduce power usage by a significant amount (depending on the device’s screen technology).
• Improves visibility for users with low vision and those who are sensitive to bright light.
• It makes it easier for anyone to use a device in a low-light environment.
Dark Theme is recommended to be provided as an option:
• Set by Battery Saver

🤔 When to use it:
• When dark goes along with brand colors
• To reduce eye strain
• To support visual hierarchy

WHY WE LOVE A SITE SURVEY
Starting the design process, especially on on a steep or complicated site can be made so much easier with a site survey! Don’t get me wrong not all project or sites need a site survey… but for the tricky detailed designs and complicated existing site conditions they are an absolute benefit!
We work closely with a site surveyor who can pick up existing features and levels that we need to work with and consider when designing new elements into garden spaces.
What are the benefits of a site survey 🍃Provide accurate scale, layout and selection of materials 🍃Locate the existing site features and topography🍃Enable new elements to be designed into the existing landscape accurately 🍃Enable the construction team to accurately quote 🍃Safe additional costs through the design process.
The small investment into the site survey at the start of the design project can provide a more accurately installed functional landscape reflecting most importantly the clients budget!
