Landscaping is both science and art, and requires good observation and design skills. A good landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction and blends them accordingly. Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including: living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what’s commonly known to as gardening, the art and craft of growing plants.

According to Steve-N-Son owner, landscape comprises the visible features of an area of land, including the physical elements of landforms such as (ice-capped) mountains, hills, water bodies such as rivers, lakes, ponds and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including different forms of land use, buildings and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions. Combining both their physical origins and the cultural overlay of human presence, often created over millennia, landscapes reflect the living synthesis of people and place vital to local and national identity. Landscaping is a learned skill.
Historically speaking, landscaping was used to beautify the area around temples, palaces, and public areas, but it was also utilized in and around private homes. The Romans, for example, had homes with landscaped enclosed courtyards enjoyed only by members of the household, while the Mayans lined the walkways to their temples with elaborate plantings. Landscaping could also have a practical function, as evidenced by the gardening terraces constructed by some Native American tribes for the purpose of crop cultivation.
Owner, Steve Reid, believes landscapes, their character and quality, help define the self-image of a region, its sense of place that differentiates it from other regions. It’s the dynamic backdrop to people’s lives. Sometimes land is not fit for landscaping. In order to landscape, the land must be reshaped. This reshaping of land is called grading. Removing of earth from the land is called cutting while when earth is added to slope, it is called filling. Sometimes grading process may involve removing of excessive waste, soil and rocks, so designers should take into account while in the planning stage.
