ABSTRACT
A field survey was carried out at eight (8) locations (Powerline, Sabo, Oja-oba, Oke-ayepe, Oke-baale,  Dagbolu,   Aiyetoro   and  Isale-osun)  selected   randomly   in  Osogbo   city of   Osun  state.Nigeria   to   assess   the   extent   of   Landscape   practice   in   the   city.   This   is   done   through   theadministration of questionnaire to 0.2% of the selected location projected 2015 population fromthe available 1991 population data and a total of 193 questionnaire was administered. Twohypotheses were tested and the two involve two different variable against one (Topography andGovernment effort against Landscape Quality) using the chi square to determine their level ofsignificance difference. This is to ascertain the quality of Osogbo Landscape and the major causefor the result be it Good or bad which is definitely bad with a level of significance difference lessthan 0.05 (p>0.05) for the two hypotheses. Other data acquire through the administration ofquestionnaire   on   site   were  analysis   with   the   use   of   SPPS   and   interpreted   with   the   use   ofGraphical representations.
