The art of landscape engineering is a complex process that requires the expertise of multiple professionals. From civil engineers to hydrologists, geotechnical engineers, environmental scientists and foresters, the architect must consult with a variety of experts to create a successful design. The preliminary design phase consists of investigating the restrictions and requirements of the project, analyzing the current characteristics of the site, and considering environmental factors such as climates, microclimates, moisture retention, existing plants and soil erosion. The architect must then move from the big idea to the exact details of how it will look.
This may require a series of drawings as part of a complete master plan or site plan. An example of contemporary landscape engineering and natural resource management related to Biosphere 2 and Seawater agriculture projects is the IBTS greenhouse, formerly the Forest City, designed for the Emirate of Ras al Khaimah. Scientists and transport departments have also been researching the viability, economic and ecological impact, and total efficiency of recycled plastic in connected landscape engineering projects. The iterative process of planning, designing, and evaluating performance by a multidisciplinary team is the foundation of landscape engineering.
Landscape engineering verifies fundamental utilities, not as a necessary evil, but as necessarily good. It is defined as the art of developing land for the use and entertainment of people in such a way as to obtain maximum utility, even with maximum beauty. It is the act of the landscape engineer to take a vigorous interest in landscape design and, therefore, to meaningfully oversee the creation of landscape design. Landscape engineers are familiar with the efficiency of pavement that is connected to a large volume depending on the types of plastic, the soils on which the pavement is designed and built, therefore, in relation to the efficiency of the pavement between the types of substrate it is built.
The father of the first degree in Irrigation Engineering in the Americas was Louis George Carpenter (March 28, 1861 — September 12, 1993). He was a university professor and, later, dean of Engineering & Physics at Colorado State University. A landscape engineer drives and exploits the strengths of nature for the benefit and satisfaction of man. Landscape architects design and often work with landscaping companies or other construction companies to install those designs. These areas are a conclusion of the design and construction process that were made possible by landscape architects together with landscape contractors. A landscape engineer must be continuously considered to achieve appropriate adjustments between the cost of operation, cost of construction and cost of maintenance.
Landscape engineering thinks about the application of mathematics and science to create comfortable outdoor living areas.
