Landscape Architecture as a Profession A landscape architect is an individual who arranges and modifies the effects of natural scenery over a tract of land so as to produce the best aesthetic effect for the land's use. Landscape architecture is the design profession which applies artistic, cultural, and scientific knowledge to the design, planning, and development of the land. Landscape architects accept certain responsibilities related to the health and welfare of the public and are concerned with resource conservation of the land. The practice of landscape architecture requires an appreciation and understanding of natural and social processes, a creative imagination, and a commitment to preserve or improve the environment for human use and enjoyment. Landscape architects plan the most harmonious relationships between the land and the objects on it by proper combination of open space and planting, and by wise use of land formation (Concise 151).
Kami are sacred spirits of Shinto and great rocks that were laid out carefully in design, lakes, ponds, ancient trees, and other elements of nature would represent the influence of Shinto in Japanese garden layouts. These places that showed Shinto influence were called “niwa”, which meant a pure place in garden terms. Designers were often called “niwa shi” meaning garden masters. Early Japanese gardens also incorporated Buddhist beliefs in their designs. Mythical mountains, islands and seas were use as a form of symbolization in design.
Landscaping is a profession that involves a natural environment to look a certain way. This profession relies on gardening, but landscaping also involves the installation of a wall and other features.

In this paper I will be comparing and contrasting to major garden styles. One arises from Kamakura period of Japan the “Saihō-ji” garden and another derives from Song Dynasty in China the “Master of the Nets Garden.” I Choose these gardens because I felt that the features and style used are distinctive, in the sense of religion, culture and nature come together to create these gardens. The style that is used in these gardens are not used anywhere else. Which led me to be interested in gaining more knowledge about them, in this paper you will see that both gardens have similar influences when come to the structure but since they have cultural differences the gardens turn out be more different then similar. I will give brief history on both periods in time when these garden styles developed.
Perception happen through the senses. Perception consists of two stages, analysis and synthesis. The analysis involved comparing external stimuli with images stored in memory to identify patterns. Synthesis is the process of drawing appropriate meaning from patterns based on the context of their occurrence. 2.3 Environmental Responsibility in MNCs Recently, MNCs faced the environmental sustainability challenge when growing their business.

Thus the evidence and conclusion are based more on social impacts and general impacts of rooftop gardens that have been recorded from all around the world. Possible improvements for the investigation could be to explore the versatility of green spaces such as vertical greenery (green walls) or urban parks such as the Green Point Park in Cape Town for example. To include primary research via a questionnaire involving communities whilst gaining their personal input could benefit the investigation as well as prove or disprove the hypothesis from a different perspective.
Research was conducted using the University of Phoenix online library, the course textbook, and online periodicals and materials.

Landscape Management Joseph Smith is owner and operator of LandScaping Unlimited (LSU), a successful lawn care and tree trimming business. In addition, LSU offers equipment rental to its clients.
Biodiversity contributes towards multiple aspects of a person’s livelihood and well-being, including products and food that humans encounter or use on a daily basis. Biodiversity also includes bacteria and/or microbes which transform waste into usable products, insect’s pollination of flowers and crops, and the biologically rich landscapes which provides a habitat or a source of enjoyment for multiple wildlife species. Therefore, it is an inevitable part of life and holds a strong influence towards the well-being of wildlife species, as well as humans. The association between biodiversity and urbanization has been greatly discussed, and it is believed that biodiversity concepts can be easily applied into urban ecosystems (Savard, Clergeau & Mennechez, 2000). As more and more people start living in urban cities, the preservation, restoration and enhancement of biodiversity becomes increasingly important.
