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.

When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools.
This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.
