Although previous works concluded that demographic variables of observers have strong influence on landscape preference, the questions of âwhich demographic characteristic(s) has(have) greater effects on preference than othersâ and âwhat are the features of a landscape preferred by each of the demographic groupsâ are not answered clearly up to now. This study aims at answering the two questions through a visual preference assessment with 482 laypersons as respondents. The main results include: (a) education level and gender of respondents have a significantly influence on preference assessment; (b) ânaturalnessâ, âgrowth status of plantâ and âelements except plantâ are the reliable predictors for the landscape preference of male; for female, the significant predictors are âdegree of plant maturationâ and ânumber of colorsâ, and (c) for the landscape preference of observers with elementary education, the significant predictors are âgrowth status of plantâ, âsafetyâ and âdegree of plant maturationâ; the observers with middle education and college education have the same predictors: âgrowth status of plantâ and ânumber of colorsâ; and ânaturalnessâ and âdegree of plant maturationâ are the predictors of participants with post graduate education. At last the practical implications of the results are discussed.
