Report on Landscape and landscaping
Landscape is more than just 'the view'. It can be the ever-changing backdrop to our daily lives, as much as the places we seek out for leisure. The character of the place can be significantly affected by the quality of the landscape and the way it is maintained. To blend man's technology into the natural surroundings, designing landscape is landscaping. This work presents an overview of landscape and landscaping, designing landscape, impact on mass people, modern landscaping, types and characters of landscape, present condition of landscapes at Sylhet and international style of landscaping.
All creatures of nature seem superbly equipped for living their lives in their natural habitat and for meeting normal situations. All except, the humans. Man has the ability to weigh the factors of a problem and reason out a course of action. Man’s essential strength- the reason for his survival and future achievements- is perception and deduction, the very essence of planning. Man to face his needs and comforts has built structures- home, schools, factories- with little thought for trees, or clean air, or sunlight. Looking about us with a clear and critical eye we find much to disturb and shock us. We are the victims of our own planning. We trapped our body and soul, in the artificial mechanistic environment we created about ourselves. It has been said by many men in many ways that, other things being equal, the happiest man is the man who lives in closest, fullest harmony with nature. But restoring man to the woods, letting him have his water, earth and sky and plenty of it- is not the ideal environment for man. Gradually, painfully he has improved, secured and sustained his shelter and varied supply of food, and extended control over his environment to improve his way of living.
