The desire to combine nature with architecture had been courted for a very long time. The research results in this area has proved that private and communal spaces should interplay creatively the nature for the benefit of the environment and the planet at large, various activities in these areas had been initiated by individuals and governments at private and city-scale levels. For, just as architecture and urban planning concern themselves with issues of comfort, safety, security, convenience, beauty, utility etc. so is landscaping no less challenged by these issues. This is so because as these of other areas of the built environment.
Landscape in architecture can be seen as the artificial arrangement of cultivated areas into geometric or free patterns to achieve a pure aesthetic result (Olwen, 1977). Landscape also deals mainly with the process of creating an attractive outdoor environment, thereby masking man to be involved in the manipulation of the outdoor space to provide a different kind of landscape to suit his own purpose (Brother, 1974),
Landscape has different major roles it plays in the environment to which it is incorporated. It helps balance the atmospheric condition and gives a healthy environment etc. also in the area of climate change or global warming, sustainability to mention a few. Also as will be discussed in this study about landscape and the academic environment, landscape plays a part in instilling discipline and order to its uses which is an integral aspect of an academic setting. It also gives a sense of direction.
Landscaping a secondary also helps to boost the image of such a school so that more young people are encouraged and drawn towards being a part of such an institution.
This study therefore seeks to critically appraise the attempt to landscape and infuse green in the secondary school setting
