Landscaping is one of the most fundamental activities that transforms land to be something else entirely, it refers to making changes in the visible features of the land which may include the natural growing plants, terrain, water bodies and even lighting.  Not every piece of land can be landscaped; hence sometimes there emerges a need to reshape the land in order to achieve the desired effect. This might include removal or addition of soil. In some cases the contractor might decide to add some rocks.

Growing of plants also enhances the beauty of land. Plants are grown for consumption or for beauty. This is what is commonly referred to as gardening. It is normally done on small area of land and may include one or different types of plants. Growing of different flowers in the garden with different colors’ that contrast and compliment each other brings a lot of joy to the gardener as it beatifies the land. Plants that are used for consumption also promote healthy eating habits as they are fresh as opposed to processed foods found in the markets.

A garden has to be protected against any form of harm for example: people trespassing and stepping on the plants, animals invading the plants and eating them, hence it is important to fence it. Garden fencing is merely putting a protective fence around your garden and can either be decorative or functional, this will be determined by the gardener as to what they consider important between the two. Garden fences can be made in different materials for example wood and metal. Different patterns can be curved on the fences as decorations which should match the plants found in that particular garden. It is very important for a gardener to take care of the fencing depending on the material used to make it as wood is susceptible to rot while metal is to rust.

It is the joy of every gardener to see a scenery that attracts the eye of living beings and above all a source of encouragement: after all maintaining a garden is labour intensive.
