The Landscape Planning and Design Division covers the fields of landscape planning and landscape design science. Each field of science forms a sub-division called 'studio'. Therefore, the DPLD consists of two studios, namely the Landscape Planning Studio (SLP) and the Landscape Design Studio (SLD). The number of DLPD members is 10 lectures, four SLP member lecturers, and six lectures are SLD members.The DPLD's mandate is to develop science, technology, and art (science) from landscape planning and design by arranging space (spatial), time, and mass to create landscape / policy plans and functional aesthetically designed designs that consider detention (participatory users), impacts, and ecological, cultural and sustainability aspects. Based on the mandate, the DPLD produced the following vision:

Being the main division of Landscape Planning and Design in Indonesia that develops science, technology and art (science and technology) planning and design of tropical landscapes in achieving vision, the DPLD prepares the following mission:

Developing landscape planning and designing science through structured research in a measured and systematic division research roadmap, Improving the qualifications and competencies of division members through continuous study of doctoral programs in accordance with the division's mandate, improving the quality of multisastra (undergraduate and postgraduate programs) landscape architecture education, especially in the field of competence standards (fulfilling IFLA Education Criteria) and the ability to research and develop science and technology. Increase activities that can generate income to strengthen division activities independently (sustainability) through collaboration with third parties.

DPLD serves 12 courses in undergraduate programs and six programs in postgraduate programs. Undergraduate courses are: (1) Sketching Drawing, (2) Introduction to Art and Architecture, (3) Landscape Design Theory, (4) Site Engineering, (5) Site Mapping and surveying, (6) Site Analysis, (7) Site Analysis , (7) Landscape Design, (8) Landscape and Landscape Construction, (9) Landscape Planning, (10) Landscape Projects, (11) Graphic Computers for Landscape Design, and (12) Thematic Garden Designs. Postgraduate courses are: (1) Landscap Planning and Design, (2) Environmental Esthetics, (3) Landscape Modeling and Analysis, (4) Landscape Planning for Tourism Areas, (5) Landscape Planning and Modeling and (6) Visual Impact Analysis. 

DLPD conducts some research and community service on landscape planning and design. Some of them were established by the Ministry of Research and Technology (research, technology and higher education) such as research with the following topics: (1) Ecodesign Models for Urban Settlement Landscapes, (2) Master Paln IPB Green Campus, and (3) Models Design for Indonesian Traditional Settlement Landscapes based on local culture. Several research and community services were established by the Ministry of Agriculture. Others are done by individual funds. The DPLD has reflected several research collaborations with Chiba University, Kyoto University, and Harvard University. However, collaboration still needs to communicate with each other.
