Landscape design is the art and science of creating outdoor spaces that balance form and function to enhance the natural environment and meet the needs of people. It involves the careful planning and placement of elements such as trees, shrubs, flowers, water features, hardscaping, and lighting to create outdoor spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, environmentally sustainable, and functional.

Landscape designers work with clients to understand their needs and preferences, and then create a design that incorporates those needs into the existing natural environment. The design process involves a thorough analysis of the site, including factors such as climate, topography, soil type, and existing vegetation, to create a plan that takes advantage of the site’s unique features and meets the client’s goals.
