Landscaping is one of the most cost-effective tools for improving and sustaining the quality of life, whether in the city, the suburbs, or the country, however it is usually a fairly big task, consuming much time and energy. By itself it implies the physical change of outdoors to serve the needs of people by planting, altering the contours of the ground, and building structures and amenities such as pedestrian ways, paths and picnic areas. This activity is one of the few improvements that adds more value to real estate than it costs to install. People often associate landscaping with garden apartments that boast acres of land and rolling hills decorated with towering trees, bountiful flower gardens and lush courtyards.

If you haven't heard about natural landscaping, then it is a relatively new term that is also called native gardening. Natural landscaping implies in itself the use of plants, including ground cover, grass, trees and shrubs which are endemic to the geographical area in which the garden is located. It is an opportunity to re-establish diverse native plants, thereby inviting the birds and butterflies back home. Natural landscaping is good for your health and it is an aesthetically exciting, ever-changing tapestry of hardy, primarily native plantings well adapted to the local climate and soil.

Philosophers in the 17th century debated whether visual beauty was a necessary goal of landscaping. A savvy landscaper understands the elements of nature and construction, and blends them appropriately. Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including but not limited to: living elements, such as flora or fauna or what is commonly referred to as gardening - the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating fascinating environment within the landscape.

Whatever you may call it: beneficial landscaping, environmentally friendly landscaping or sustainable landscaping, is a way of designing and maintaining beautiful yards, gardens, and larger landscapes to:

- Have healthier places to work and play
