A revolution in landscape design in the eighteenth century, first promoted in England, had a profound effect on the evolution of landscape architecture in America and around the World. This developing profession, originally the servant of royalty and nobility, is now available for the enjoyment and well-being of all citizens. As a social art, landscape architecture adapts land to human recreation and relaxation and for many, it has become a therapeutic and spiritual inspiration.
