Landscaping is about more than just making a yard beautiful. After all, a well-cared-for lawn can make even a bare yard look appealing. Landscape design is about transforming your yard into beautiful retreat while minimising the impact human activities have on the plants and the environment in your yard. While adding a few potted plants significantly help improve the look of your yard, the true value of landscape design lies beyond aesthetic improvements.
Landscaping is important because it contribute significantly to our well-being and quality of life. It provide the broader context within which we live our lives. Living within aesthetically pleasing and culturally meaningful landscapes enhances our sense of well-being. Visiting largely undeveloped landscapes enables people to re-connect with nature, to refresh their minds and bodies.
