Landscape architecture blends the design professions of architecture, civil engineering, urban planning and horticulture to encompass the analysis, planning, design, management and stewardship of the natural and built environment. While people commonly think of anything involving 'landscaping' in terms of plants, it includes things like hardscape, relative elevations and context. A landscape architect is just as focused on function as form: the plants selected fit and enhance the environment in which they are placed. Other features accommodate pedestrian traffic, safety and weather considerations. It's certainly not all about aesthetics!
