Abstract

Plants are identify as a valuable element in visual landscape assessment. This study examines the visual landscape quality (VLQ) relationship towards students’ well-being. This study identifies the preferences of planting composition scenes through the photo-based survey method. The survey employs 51 scenes with 5-points Likert-scale rating. The PLS-SEM was used to interpret the findings. The findings show the preferred scenes are complexity and coherent arrangement, moderate density, and natural plants, compared to openness and mysterious characteristics. These characteristics support students’ engagement and positive emotions. This finding will assist the campus designers in improving the VLQ towards students’ well-being.  

Keywords: Visual landscape quality; planting composition; students’ well-being; landscape preference
