Landscape Design/Garden Design?

A landscape is simply an outdoor environment, whether designed by nature or by professionals. It is the selection and controlled arrangement of plants and other hardscape elements for the beautification of buildings and parks etc.

A properly designed and planned landscape site increases its usefulness, beauty, ecological, social, economic, and aesthetic values. Therefore, a landscape design is required to make the best use of available space in farmhouses, parks, buildings, educational institutes, and other government and private institutions. Proper landscaping should have utility as well as beauty. In the planning of site design, walkways, driveways, pergolas, gazebos, water features like fountains and waterfalls, and BBQ areas are necessary elements for the development of environments for the people living in the buildings. These facilities should be durable, attractive, comfortable and nicely located, and well placed/suited to the landscape. An attractively landscaped house is aesthetically pleasing. People appreciate the beauty of architecture that can be added with ornamental trees, plants, shrubs, climbers, creepers, seasonal flowers, and other hardscape elements. A well-planned landscape improves the value of property in several indirect ways. The house/farmhouse will be more appealing to a prospective buyer because of its usefulness and attractiveness of the landscape features. Buyers also feel the value of having an established landscape rather than having to bear the expenses and efforts involved in establishing landscape materials for a new house.

Landscape Design

Garden and landscape design, the development and decorative planting of gardens, yards, grounds, parks, and other types of areas. Garden and landscape design are used to enhance the settings for buildings and public areas and recreational areas and parks. It is one of the decorative arts and is allied to architecture, city planning, and horticulture.

The vegetated landscape that covered most of the Earth’s continents before humans began to build still surrounds and penetrates even the largest metropolises. Efforts to design gardens and to preserve and develop green open space in and around cities are efforts to maintain contact with the original pastoral, rural landscape. Gardens and designed landscapes, by filling the open areas in cities, create continuity in space between structural urban landscapes and the open rural landscapes beyond. Moreover, gardens and designed landscapes have a special type of continuity in time. Buildings, paintings, and sculptures may survive longer than specific plants, but the constant cyclical growth and change in plants provide a continuous-time dimension that static structures and sculpture can never achieve.
