Landscape gardening is a type of gardening that involves design and maintenance.
Nevertheless, gardening just focuses on cultivating plants or flowers within a space.
But landscape is a completely a different thing. Landscape gardens is a big picture than just simple gardening. If you a landscape garden, you will need a landscaper to design and plan for that. Though, gardener is still needed to do much work including planting, fertilizing, weeding, cultivating, and harvesting in season.
Landscape garden is an ancient kind of gardening which emerged in England in the early 18th century, and spread across Europe, replacing the more formal gardening of the 17th century as the principal gardening style of Europe. Landscape garden idealizes a wonderful scenario of nature. A landscape garden usually includes a lake, sweeps of gently rolling lawns set against groves of trees, and recreations of classical temples, Gothic ruins, bridges, and other picturesque architecture, designed to recreate an idyllic pastoral landscape and much more. It just depend on you that how you want to indulge nature with art and decoration. You can go simple, if you want of course. There are many landscape gardens that are in the form of public parks.
A landscape garden can be more than just a garden. It can be on a smaller scale and more filled with “eye-catchers” like grottoes, temples, tea-houses, pavilions, sham ruins, bridges and statues, though the main ingredients of the landscape gardens in most of the world, are sweeps of gently rolling ground and water, against a woodland background with clumps of trees and outlier groves. You can also design your garden with shrubberies, tree plantations to satisfy botanical curiosity, and, most notably, the return of flowers, in skirts of sweeping planted beds. Most of the landscapers would add a pond or small lake with a pier or bridge while designing you landscape garden. Much like a park, if you consider having fun with gardening. Although, now in the 21 century, public park is the word used to describe a landscape garden.
