In all the artistic branches, "abstraction" is a common concept. Abstraction is the formation of objects that exist in nature and the information about these objects in the intellectual dimension, undertaking new meanings. In other words, abstraction is the interpretation of reality in a creative way. The objective of the present study is to determine the way abstraction is perceived in landscape architecture studies. In the study, how the plant displays used in Landscape Architecture works could be abstracted artistically. In the first stage, the visuals of selected plant species were examined by the authors based on size, form and texture, and artistic abstract representations were designed using different geometric forms. In the second phase, a survey was conducted on the designed artwork with 50 experts in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture, fine arts and painting. In the survey, the participants were asked to evaluate the artwork from an artistic perspective. At this stage, adjective pairs were provided to the experts and the representations were rated based on these attributes. For this purpose, a survey with the 5-point scale Semantic Differential Scale was determined as the method of this study. Finally, artistic plant representations expressed in abstraction were predominantly described with attributes such as creative, original, modern, etc.
