Problem Statement: Creating communication between human and his/her environment has certainly played a vital role in human life and providing his/her material and spiritual needs from the distant past. This interaction has been exhibited in different eras and different landscapes and has reinforced the culture of the people of each country. Also, this interaction of environment and landscape with the help of perception and participation plays an important role in improving the qualitative dimensions of the landscape and it has been attempted to enhance it through a participatory landscape.
Research objective: The current paper aims to examine the perception characteristics of urban and participatory landscapes and to present adaptive factors of landscape perception and participation field.
Research method: In this study, a combination of content analysis and comparative methods has been used. First, it tries to reason about perception and participation, and then to seek ways of applying a comparative approach in a participatory landscape. The first section of this article focuses on theoretical discussions on perception and participation in content analysis, which have been made possible using qualitative strategies in the context of rational reasoning, then explores the perceptions and participation factors similarities via comparative analysis.
 Conclusion: Landscape perception is depended on spatia-visual, Functional, behavioral-visual and participation on participatory theory, multi level rangeand Participatory template and method AND Participatory ladder. By using these definitions, Conceptual model is presented in this article which shows the two-way relationship between landscape perception and participation. Results show that Reciprocal outcome by personal,generalized and institutional trust is effective in development and formation process of participatory landscape. At the end design participatory landscape pattern Provided with the opinion of experts.
