There are various organization styles, these styles can be generally classified as formal and naturalistic styles. Plants could be used to create borders, for architectural purposes, to create spaces, to screen bad views, for aesthetic purposes, to create emphasis, to compliment buildings, for erosion control, to direct movements, to screen light, to control noise, to provide shade and for climate control. The present study aims to identify the types of plants used as border elements, the space and purposes of their use.
