Site planning in aggregate mining refers to the organizational stage of the landscape design process. It involves the organization of land use zoning, site access, site circulation, land drainage, sound levels, and other factors. This is done by arranging the compositional elements of landform, planting, water, and paving and building.

Site planning generally begins by assessing a potential site for development through site analysis. Information about slope, soils, hydrology, vegetation, parcel ownership, orientation, etc. are assessed and mapped into a computer model. By determining areas that are poor for development (such as floodplain or steep slopes) and better for site development, our planners may assess optimal location for locating a site that best suits the project boundary.
