UNTIL recent years the Profession of Landscape Architecture has not been well understood by the general public. The possibilities for artistic designing in the improvement of the grounds around private homes, institutions, clubs and public buildings have not been fully realized, but with the growth and maturity of the country has now come a fuller knowledge of the advantages and pleasures that follow the careful study and execution of such work. As a result, the services of the Landscape Architect are now recognized by people of intelligence as an invaluable asset in the arrangement of land for service and beauty, just as the services of an Architect are indispensable in the designing of a well-planned and artistic building. It is now generally conceded that the best results for the carrying out of the ideas of both Architect and Landscape Architect are to be secured by consultation between the two before the building is begun, so that designs for the building and grounds may be worked out harmoniously.
