Landscape architecture
Ecoscaping integrates architectural planning and effective use of resources

Ecoscaping is a spatial planning discipline that integrates landscape architecture and environmental science to create sustainable designs or construction.

The approach of Ecoscaping is holistic and strives to respect the pre-existing materials, microenvironments, and structures (backyards, cities, campuses, etc.) in sustainable land use management with ecological balance.[1]


Ecoscaping searches for solutions to improve the look of a property while making minimal impact on the surrounding environment, protecting biodiversity and wildlife habitats, achieving nature conservation and ecological balance.[1]

Examples of Ecoscaping techniques include:


Ecoscaping is a process of building and rebuilding based on nature, sustainable development, and human aesthetics. Ecoscaping provides an alternative to harsh land use practices with ecologically adverse effects, such as impervious surfaces, soil compaction, contamination, and urban sprawl.
