Landscape architecture

Landscape architecture encompasses the design, analysis, planning, management, and stewardship of sustainable environments. Landscape architects design and engage the landscape across a wide range of projects and scales — from garden to plaza, to park, to entire regional landscapes. This guide presents resources for research in landscape architecture, a field of study that often encompasses elements from architecture, urban planning, and design. The tools listed below range from article databases (some containing full text) to indexes for government and scientific reports.
