The landscape architect is not a lonely figure. They have the backing of professional associations and a wide spectrum of projects ranging from roads, reservoirs, river reclamation, forests, housing development projects, industrial estates, rapid urbanization and other projects. If one is thinking of becoming a landscape architect, one needs to have a creative flair and appreciation for nature in all its forms. Along with this is needed an analytical mind to design, manage, preserve and rehabilitate cities into functional and aesthetically pleasing entities. Whether working for a firm or being self-employed, the increasing demand for designed outdoor spaces is turning landscape architecture into a challenging profession.
Because you are going to be designing the front landscape around accessibility, the first thing you should decide on is where your paths and driveway are going to go. In many cases this may already be decided for you depending on where your garage is. Once you know where these important parts of the front yard are then you need to create a landscaping design around them.
The first American professional landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead Sr. was responsible for construction of the new Central Park (NY) in 1857. The project was resumed after the Civil War along with new ones in Brooklyn, N.Y.; New Britain, Connecticut; San Francisco, California; Chicago, Illinois and across America. With the success of these ventures and the growing popularity of constructed park cemeteries, the landscape gardener was beginning to be referred to as a landscape architect. Schools and colleges across the country pitched in, offering professional degrees in landscape architecture to budding landscape architects. Landscape architecture is now recognized by the International Labor Organization and is represented by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).
Most planning and design consultants advice homeowners seeing to enhance the look of their backyard to bear in mind that soil improvement is crucial. When embarking on a do-it-yourself garden enhancement project, you can improve the quality of your soil through composting. Some budget-conscious homeowners choose to preserve the plants, trees and some hardscapes they already have, and handle the planting of small shrubs or flowering plants.
