SCENERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

One premise of SMS is that land management

activities (including construction of facilities)

should not contrast with the existing naturalappearing

landscape. Within a framework of

regional landscape character types, form, line,

color, and texture should be used to make

activities and structures “fit” within landscapes

(Agricultural Handbook 666). This approach

promotes a strong response to the context of

the natural landscape. It also reinforces the

concept of early park planning that structures

should be visually subordinate to the landscape.
