    In order to become a landscape designer, you will need to be registered with the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Designers (NZILD) and have design qualifications through them or an equivalent organisation. There are five levels of certification for NZILD, which can be attained in any sequence.

    The landscape designer can be an independent contractor or a full-time employee. They work with customers to identify their needs and design landscapes accordingly. This includes deciding on plant types, water features, drainage systems, as well as gathering soil samples for testing.
    The DSMT is the professional organization that sets the higher standards and qualifications for staffing in all phases of the landscape profession and prides itself in providing an excellent service for clients throughout New Zealand and beyond.

    One way to become a landscape designer nz is to get an apprenticeship with a professional landscaper. A landscape designer NZ will be graded according to their ability level and skill set, and they can work independently or in a group collaboration team setting.
    Designers need basic skills in three areas- drawing, mathematics, and physical aptitude. They then must invest several years of hands on learning through on the job training before they're ready because the industry has strict criteria for certification which not everyone meets. Landscape design courses are offered by many trade schools at various levels; some offer only vocational certificates while others offer certifications that are accepted by other countries as well.

    I don't think there are any qualifications for becoming a Landscape Designer. It might be best to explore options with landscape designers in your area and see if they would provide feedback on your idea or just refer you to their personal contacts.
    A number of schools also offer degrees in Landscape Design, which typically takes four years plus an internship before you graduate.
    If you plan to start a business, the first things are generally getting a good understanding of the benefits and limitations of landscaping as well as an understanding about economic issues that could affect your company later on in it's life like zoning restrictions.

    Because a landscape design degree is a three-level study program, completion of 5 years' worth of education and training is necessary. Completion of graduate level coursework ̢ like design history, color theory, or landscape drawing ̛ will help students find the right field to excel in.
    It's not enough to have an eye for what makes things look good - you'll need to learn how different materials behave so that water can be directed where it needs to without destroying plants and lawns. After completing undergraduate classes in biology at least once, aspiring graduates take as many courses on plant science and ecology as possible before doing another bachelor's degree in horticulture.
