OBARARE: "to plow up, to plow across"

PARADISUM: "paradise"

The modern concept of "landscaping" probably didn't have a single regular word in Latin, and I can't think of proverbial any expression, in either English or Latin, that talks to this notion.

Hence, I've given you the phrase, "to plow up paradise," which should yield the same idea, namely destruction of great, edifying beauty for commercial or "civilizing" purposes.
