Nature-based Solutions is an umbrella concept, gaining traction in recent years. It implies working with nature in order to simultaneously address multiple challenges humanity faces today, including biodiversity loss, climate change, food and energy insecurity. Nature-based Solutions are being applied across landscape types, including urban, rural, forest and protected areas. Combining nature-based solutions with landscape design, however, has predominantly been considered in cities. However, there is a great potential of combining implementation of Nature-based Solutions with landscape design in other landscapes, too. The experience from the urban Nature-based Solutions creates a great opportunity for analyzing potential of application of landscape design in other settings. The approach is likely to provide a range of benefits and increase support for the Nature-based Solution projects from the general society. It is also likely to increase attractiveness of the projects for investors, which in turn may contribute to wider application of nature-based solutions. Here we review this experience and propose potential solutions that might be implemented in landscapes other than urban ones.
