According to Wikipedia, landscaping means any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land. We beleive landscaping is a task of combining science and art to manipulate the land for both aesthetic and practical reasons such as enhancing the appearance and create usable space for outdoor activities around a home. For an instance, if you can take a look at your window and see fixed features in your yard through the window affecting the overall aesthetics or practical functioning of your land, then those features are part of the “landscaping” of the property.
The landscaping features include planting, edging, irrigation, landscape lighting water gardens, trees, lawn ornaments, decks, driveways, walkways, patios, fences, fountains, outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor fire pits, pet areas, riprap and retaining walls. Landscaping should create a synergy between the home or business and outdoor spaces.
Along with horticultural knowledge, as well as familiarity with the architectural elements and principles of landscape design, a landscaper can help you transform your property.
