Importance of Landscaping

  1. Bio-aesthetic planting
  • Bio-aesthetic planting is a term coined by Prof. Lancelot Hogben, which means the appropriate use of available flora and fauna in the beautification of the surroundings.
  • In India, the subject of bio-aesthetic planting was propagated by Dr. M.S. Randhawa, along with famous architects Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, who gave practical shape to plantations in Chandigarh.
  • Roads in towns and cities should be wide, planted with flowering trees and plants, and should have huge parks along with protection for harmless animals and birds.
  1. Pollution (Air & Noise)
  • Nowadays air pollution is a big problem for the world.
  • Smoke from residential coal furnaces, dust and smoke from grinding mills and chimneys of factories, and smoke from motor vehicles – all add to the pollution of our cities.
  • The role of open spaces such as parks and living plants in preventing air pollution is well known.
  • Parks are considered the lungs of the city.
  • The barrier of trees prevents noise pollution, dust pollution, and air pollution.
  1. Human Welfare
  • It is a great tragedy that most of our children in big cities have no space to play and see colorful flowers, birds, and butterflies.
  • Even in an underdeveloped country like India, people cannot depend on bread alone.
  • Huge parks with beautiful trees and flowers where citizens can relax, find peace of mind, and breathe fresh air after a hard day’s work
