Enlisting the services of a landscape professional can create pockets of interest for the eyes of home dwellers and guests. If you are keen on using a landscaper to design your yard and create a garden that has a very natural, informal look and relaxing ambience, it may be worth the investment but beforehand, think about how you really want to use or benefit from your outdoor space.
A decorative garden is one that focuses on plants that will have the largest visual impact per square foot without any consideration for edible, or in some other way functional plant.

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).
