Land resources of Ukraine, having economic, social, natural, cultural and historical significance, mainly are located within rural areas. Despite the fact that Ukraine has a significant land and resource potential of the territories, intensification of the use of land resources, in particular in agriculture, leads to the depletion of soil cover, land degradation and landscape destruction. The environmental policy of Ukraine provides for introduction of the principles of sustainable development in all fields of environmental management. It is planned to optimize the structure of land use types, reducing the area of arable land by removing eroded slopes, degraded and unproductive land, and water protection areas. The article explores the issues related to the adoption of decisions on the placement of various activities within rural area, which, on the one hand, will satisfy the needs of the population, and on the other hand, will create conditions for the reproduction and preservation of the natural potential of the territories. Such decisions should be based on spatial planning measures, the conceptual basis of it is differentiation of the landscape within the territory. The methodological basis of the study is physical economy, in which economic development is based on the laws of nature. The authors have developed a methodical approach to determine the priority types of land use forming cultural landscape, which, in turn, ensures free movement of biological energy as the basis of life activity. Results of the research are approbated on the example of rural area within the Remezivtsi municipality of district Zolochiv of Lviv region. There is suggested landscape-ecological mapping of rural area, which can be used in the system of integrated land use management.
