Gardens, yards, lawns, parks, and other designed green outdoor places are developed and ornamentally planted through landscape architecture. Landscape gardening is used to improve the environment and create a natural backdrop for homes, communities, and villages. It belongs to the ornamental arts and has connections to gardening, urban planning, and architecture.
A beautiful natural landscape can be altered or made using trees, bushes, shrubs, hedges, flowers, grasses, water (lakes, streams, ponds, and waterfalls), and rocks. Also employed are structures made of artificial materials such decks, terraces, plazas, pavement, fences, gazebos, and fountains. Depending on the designer, the intended use of the specific site, the dominant culture, and current trends, many factors influence how important man-made components are in comparison to natural ones.
