- n. The background of a landscape; in landscape-gardening, that part of the landscape which lies beyond the property that is to be improved: an old term now coming again into use. The landscape-garden proper comprises the domain over which the artist has immediate jurisdiction and control; the offscape is the outlying scenery, with which his own work should, articulate.
From off- + -scape. (Wiktionary)
