Landscaping Has a Long History
There are very fancy landscaping designs of old gardens that we can still see today. Many ancient cultures changed their surroundings to make them nicer to look at. Areas around temples, palaces, public squares, and even private homes were all landscaped. In Rome, for example, most families would landscape an area close to the house for the family members. Mayan walkways had beautiful paintings and plants on the way to their temples. In some cultures, landscaping was useful. Native Indian tribes, for example, used landscaping plans for growing food.
Nowadays, landscaping is mostly done around properties. You'll find a lot of it around homes, office buildings, parks, museums, and other public places like that.
In a normal outdoor landscaping job, a landscaper starts by drawing the area that needs to be landscaped. They look at the surroundings, like other buildings, trees, roads, and pathways. They also check the soil quality, the plants and flowers that are already there, and any other things that may be in the area. Using this drawing, the landscaper can then create a good design. A small project, like patio landscaping, will need less design time than if they were landscaping around an office property, for example.
After that, they'll make pathways and use plants to show where the paths are. Then they can work on the rest of the area, making the look they want around pools, trees, gazebos, walls, and any other features that are there. They'll add and remove features as needed.
