While working on the Landscape Architecture merit badge, Scouts learn to consider the importance of utility and beauty in planning outdoor spaces. They explore how plants should be chosen and how paths and other spaces should be arranged to meet the intended use of the area. They also investigate careers related to landscape architecture.
