WHAT’S THE MEANING?
Landscaping is a field of art that combines the elements of design--such as color, line, form, texture, and scale--and science to develop a functional and aesthetically pleasing extension of indoor living to the outdoors as defined by Dewayne Ingram. Another concept to consider is garden design—it is a branch of landscape design that deals with private spaces and private goods. Consequently, landscape architecture is a profession, and the term was coined by Gilbert Laing Meason.
