Landscape design is a term familiar to all owners of houses and cottages. This term includes not only landscape gardening and landscaping garden. It is a real art that includes knowledge from different fields of science. Landscape design is based on the laws of design, architecture, construction, plant growing, history, culture and philosophy.
There are a lot of questions at the beginning of the garden arrangement process: how to build a pathway; where to provide a place for recreation or an arbor; where to plant trees, and which ones. One way to solve these issues is to explore piles of special literature or to buy a colorfully illustrated landscape design magazines, but, unfortunately, the theoretical knowledge does not always provide the desired result. Beautiful garden is not a coincidence, but the result of the specialists work, ranging from experienced designers and ending with qualified teams of workers who will embody the idea of the garden to reality. While designing the area it is desirable to consult an architect. The work can be divided into two phases: the preparation of the design and the actual design. Area designing is a very important and crucial stage of site adjustment process. Territory measurements are the first stage in design preparing. They are necessary for the accurate representation of the original relief of the area. This must be considered during future construction, land planning and functional zoning in order to more use the original terrain efficiently. It is also necessary to hold an inventory to accommodate existing trees, shrubs, flower beds, assess their condition, as well as to determine the optimal location for the garden planned elements. Landscape design begins with thinking about the most convenient and logical area zoning. A master plan is a carefully designed plan, based on a sketch, which shows the boundaries of the area, the projected plants, pathways, playgrounds, all existing plants, all the buildings and architecture, flower gardens.

The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type.
