Within your budget you will have a good range of pretty sturdy tripods. However, for landscapes you want something that you can carry about over hill and dale, and for that you should really think about carbon fibre models like the Manfrotto 190Cx. Unfortunately, the legs alone will blow your budget and by the time you've added a substantial head (like the 496RC2) you're in the £200 range.
I don't agree with StephenBatey. I think ball heads are the only practical option for landscapes giving you complete control over the camera attitude.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
