The findings of our imitations in this study could have significant positive implications to inspire readers to more comprehensive thoughts and inspirations. Methodology: Desktop research is preliminarily adopted. Two case studies (Shek O Quarry in Hong Kong and Serra da Arrabida Natural Park in Portugal) have been selected. Findings: There are perceptible benefits from Shek O Quarry and Serra da Arrabida Natural Park on the use of landscaping in quarry. Benefits include the creation of diversity in ecology, vegetation, landscape visual impacts and the nesting areas that have been created. The disbenefits include immeasurable results of negative environmental impacts and high initial costs. Conclusion: Based on the research undertaken, it can be ascertained that the benefits of using landscaping in quarry outnumber the disbenefits.
