Nature and landscape in populated and unpopulated areas are to be protected in such a way that the biological diversity, the performance and functionality of the natural balance, the diversity, character and beauty as well as the recreational value of nature and landscape are secured in the long term - this is the mandate of the Federal Nature Conservation Act.

A core concern of landscape architects is to reconcile the protection of nature and landscape with other social concerns. In doing so, solutions for the individual case are shown with a sense of proportion.

In urban areas, landscape architects develop concepts for urban nature conservation. Their planning ensures, for example, that dynamic urban nature can be experienced by children and is compatible with the requirements of species protection. Open spaces are developed into multifunctional urban green spaces.

In the open landscape, landscape architects help nature conservation to be given appropriate consideration with concrete utilization concepts and environmental assessments, for example in relation to agriculture and new traffic infrastructures. The task of avoiding new impairments to nature and the landscape, or at least compensating for them in a creative and forward-looking way, is becoming increasingly important.

The spectrum in nature and landscape protection includes:

  • Impact regulation, compensation concepts, land pool and eco-accounts
  • Environmental assessments, environmental impact studies/assessments (EIA, SEA, EIA report)
  • FFH impact assessments (FFH-VP), species protection assessments (saP)
  • Maintenance and development planning
  • Management plans and protected area concepts
  • Concepts for visitor guidance and information
  • Species protection concepts, biotope network planning
  • Species and biotope type mapping
  • Landscape framework plans, landscape plans, green space plans
  • Environmental assessments in urban land use planning
  • Watercourse development, planning of renaturation
  • Nature experience and discovery areas
  • Municipal biodiversity concepts
  • Environmental construction supervision, monitoring concepts
