Landscape design focuses on both the planning of a property and the specific garden design of certain landscape elements and plants within it. The practical, aesthetic, horticultural  and environmental sustainability components are all considered in landscape design. Landscape designers often collaborate with related disciplines such as architecture, civil engineering, land surveying, landscape contracting, edaphology, botany and artisan specialties. Design project can tend to focus towards artistic composition and artisanship, horticultural finesse and expertise, and a detailed site involvement to emphasise concepts through-out the construction in landscape design. Whereas in landscape architecture the focus shifts slightly to projects like urban planning, design of parks, civic and corporate landscapes, large scale interdisciplinary projects and delegation to contractors after completing designs. The contemporary sphere of landscape design is so great that it includes not only landscaping design, but also complete improvement and re-planting of streets, roads, urban centers, historical landscapes, industrial regions, etc. There can be significant overlap of talents and skills, depending on the education and experience of the professional.

 

Landscape design is also the art and process  of designing and creating plans of the layout and planting of gardens. Landscape design may be done by the garden owner themselves, or by professionals of varying levels of experience and expertise. Most professional landscape designers are trained in principles of design and in horticulture and have an expert knowledge and experience of using plants effectively. Garden owners have shown an increasing interest in garden design during the late twentieth century, both as enthusiasts of gardening as a hobby, as well as an expansion in the use of professional landscape designers.

 

Landscape design is an independent profession as well as a design and art tradition practiced by landscape designers by combining nature and culture. In contemporary practice landscape design creates a bridge between the skills of landscape architecture and garden design.
