Intriguing landscapes ignite the preferential consciousness of man for its assessment. Theories of landscape aesthetics has since been under scientific scrutiny with focus on what determines landscape preference. In this regards, two main schools of thoughts have merged in terms of aesthetics quality inherent in man’s mental view or in the quality of landscape viewed by man. The paper therefore presents practical considerations in adopting and applying these paradigms, especially in terms of theoretical background, criteria for testing and measurement and the strengths and weaknesses of these schools of thoughts. This is found imperative for researchers to understand before consideration of suitable landscape approach in landscape studies.
