Landscape design stands on three whales: landscape architecture (engineering aspect), crop production (biological aspect) and history (culture and philosophy). In contrast to utilitarian gardening and horticulture, landscape design is more universal. The main objective of landscape design is to create harmony, beauty combined with ease of use and functionality. If you look at the history of the garden and park ensemble of Versailles, you can see how these three directions are harmoniously combined. Chief Gardener and Landscape Architect André Lenôtre has managed to create a complex, complete architectural complex and an exceptional park in its integrity. Of course, this is all on a global scale, but we learn by example from our own gardens, terraces and patios, where we can create masterpieces of landscape architecture ourselves.
Advice from gardeners, dendrologists, landscape architects, who will gladly share their knowledge in this field, will help us.
