Landscaping is an activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including:

 

  1. living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what is commonly called gardening, the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating a beautiful environment within the landscape.
  2. natural elements such as landforms, terrain shape and elevation, or bodies of water; and
  3. abstract elements such as the weather and lighting conditions.
