Why use Landscape Architecture?
A landscape architect can greatly enhance
the aesthetic and economic value of a project by combining
a thorough understanding of the site with the needs and desires
of the owner to plan and design dynamic outdoor spaces that
work with the natural terrain. A combination of art and science,
landscape architecture has been employed throughout history
to create cities, towns, plazas, gardens, and landscapes which
bring a sense of place and community as well as environmental
sanctuary that is so vital in maintaining healthy lives.
Landscape architects plan the layout of softscape
(soil, grass, plants, shrubs, trees, etc.) as well as hardscape
(roads, walkways, retaining walls, irrigation pipes, fountains,
pools, spas, sculpture, etc.).
