An architect plans and designs a building to satisfy the requirements of the owner for making the building structure comfortable, convenient and economical also. An interior designer designs an interior space of a structure to give it right environment and mood. But it is the Landscape Architect’s job to improve the environment of the site of the building. Landscaping is a specialized branch of study. The services of the Landscape Architect should be engaged right from the planning stage only. The Landscape Architect gives important suggestions to the Architect on how to exploit the potentialities of a site fully. A careful survey of the soil condition, climate, nature of the existing trees, proposed location of the building, slope of the site, surrounding details etc. helps to take a decision on the kind of grass, shrubs and trees to be planted on the site to enhance the effect of architecture and to impart the desired character to the building. The treatment given to the surrounding should make the environment cheerful and picturesque by providing lawns and plants at different levels. As such, with variation such as a building surrounded by ample space or a building having marginal distance and compound, each case becomes a challenge to the landscape designer.
