Purpose And Function


Like artists choosing the correct material for the job, so landscapers must pay attention to the purpose of the area when designing a plan for a site. The landscaper must “understand your site for plant selection and activity location … remember the user by considering what you want and need … consider the function of plants for both the environment and the user … take time into account for the growth and maintenance of plants” (Gail Hansen de Chapman, “Landscape Design: Ten Important Things to Consider,Ask IFAS, April 9, 2018, https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/publication/EP375).
