Arrangement of trees, shrubs, climbers and various other plants together with the building, paths, drives, artificial and natural features for the use of humanity is termed as landscape gardening. Landscape architecture is the art of arranging land and landscape for human use, convenience and enjoyment. Design is the determination of the character of an object to serve a certain purpose known in advance. Design may be of two types i.e. aesthetic and economic. Aesthetic design is purely attractive and pleasing in appearance, while economic design is meant to serve some practical and utilitarian purpose. In most of the cases, landscape architecture should satisfy in its design for both the purposes. The present book describes the introduction to gardening, garden plan and design, planning of vegetable design, community gardens design, rain garden design, landscape design, nature and health in Therapeuti Gardens , architectural arrangement of gardens and the design of the Mughal gardens in India. This book has been planned for students of horticulture, ornamental design and floriculture.
