Landscape design cannot be described in a few simple terms. There are several different landscape design architecture jobs that one can choose to focus on: Land Development, Site Planning, Urban/Town Planning, Regional Landscape Planning, Park and Recreation Planning, Land Development Planning, Ecological Planning and Development, Historical Preservation and Reclamation, and Social and Behavioral Aspects to Landscape Planning. With the scope of the profession so broad and the projects so varied, landscape architecture is sure to encompass any aspect of landscape design.
From city council rooms to lecture halls, there is an increasing demand today for landscape architecture jobs. More than any of the other major environmental design professions, landscape design architecture is a profession that is on the move. Landscape design architecture by definition is no less than the art and science of analysis, planning design, management, preservation and rehabilitation of the land. In providing well-managed design and development plans, landscape architects offer an essential array of services and expertise that reduces costs and adds long-term value to a project.
Whatever style of garden is being constructed one thing that is important to keep in mind is that in order to create a strong visual appeal, it is better to stagger plants of different heights and colors around one another. This creates texture and dimension to a garden space that can make it seem larger than it really is.
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).
A well crafted small garden design could be desirable to people for a number of reasons. First, the outdoor space suitable for being turned into a garden could be rather small. Alternatively there could be plenty of outdoor space, but the person may not want to make a large garden. Also if the garden space is set in an urban setting there may only be a balcony or small patio available for a garden installation.
