Landscape architecture involves the planning, design, management, and nurturing of the built and natural environments. … They plan and design parks, campuses, streetscapes, trails, plazas, residences, and other projects that strengthen communities.

Landscape Architecture is More Important Than You Think

ENVIRONMENT 1. Evaluating the quality of the landscape and determining remediation requirements Before starting with the development of the design, the site must be assessed. This means evaluation of the site’s characteristics and contamination. It’s a very complex process which includes input from professionals like engineers, ecologists, and landscape architects. Landscape architects identify areas of opportunity or setbacks that may provide constraints, and also evaluate aspects of the landscape (geology, hydrology, scenic characteristics, etc.). With the assessing of the site we get information such as whether a site is safe for construction and which actions should be taken for that site’s remediation and organization. If the evaluation is done right, the site’s further design then has a better chance at success, which is shown in Top 10 Reused Industrial Landscapes.
