April is a special month in the landscaping industry because it is National Landscape Architecture Month. This is the perfect time to take a close look at your local community and admire all of its parks, gardens, residential developments and more. All of these things could not take shape, if it was not for landscape architecture. It ultimately takes careful planning, designing, land use management and applying sustainable design practices to create your community and other communities around the nation.
Landscape architecture is the unique meeting of environment and art. It is a profession that combines both creativity and science. Many people think of landscaping on a small scale because they do not realize that landscape architects shape the world we live in starting from the root. The beginning of our communities and the growth of our communities start by planting a seed.
