Landscape Designing

Overview

Landscape design is an independent profession and a design and art tradition which is practiced by landscape designers. It is an amalgamation of nature and culture. In recent practice, landscape design bridges the gap between landscape architecture and garden design.[

Landscape design focuses on the integrated master landscape planning of a property. It also lays stress on the specific garden design of landscape elements and plants within it. The practical, aesthetic, horticultural, and environmental sustainability are different aspects of landscape design. Landscape designers often collaborate with related disciplines such as architecture and geography, soils and civil engineering, surveying, landscape contracting, botany, and artisan specialties. Design projects involve two different professional roles: landscape design and landscape architecture.

Landscape design involves artistic composition, artisanship, horticultural finesse and expertise. It also gives emphasis on detailed site involvement from conceptual stages through to final construction. Landscape architecture focuses more on urban planning, city and regional parks, civic and corporate landscapes.

There can be significant overlap of talent and skill between the two roles, depending on the education, licensing, and experience of the professional. Both landscape designers and landscape architects practice landscape design.
