For general interests and landscape architecture students alike, this section will progress to include common terminology found in academic studies and the "real world" of the profession.  Please know my ground rules: this vocabulary is unrestrictive, meaning I intend to include terms that may not be directly related to landscape architecture but an allied profession, such as arboriculture, horticulture, engineering, and architecture.  Landscape architects are better served by becoming familiar with associated terms that can influence (or impact) their projects.  Students may reference this blog to assist in their studies.  As ever, this website is still only a hobby of mine, so consider the glossary as an every-evolving list.  In other words, I accept revisions to the definitions included here.  Thank you.
