    A landscape designer is required to have art and science training, as well as more than a decade of practical experience in garden design. Choosing to embark on a traditional education can give you all three. Carefully review the curriculum at art and design schools. You will need to complete classes in landscape plant materials, principles of grading, horticulture, irrigation systems, construction methods for driveways and walks, surveying methods, design theory (tutorial courses), and renderings (art department).

    You can become a landscape designer through obtaining an Associate Degree in Landscape Design from a community college. The study of land and landscaping is quite similar to that of interiors, so they are often taught together. Landscape designers rely heavily on their experience and expertise to create the perfect exterior space for you, your family, or business. Landscape design builds upon knowledge both of interior-planting designs as well as principles of irrigation control, engineering and construction management in order to manipulate the natural landscape for human use. Landscapes provide many benefits including energy saving air quality controls that recycle waste water by storing it in aquifers underground where it will eventually be filtered back into lakes.

    The first consideration is your career path. Do you want to be an architect, a licensed architect, an engineer, or someone who designs landscapes like a garden designer? Once you're clear on that, take classes in things like graphic design work and drafting. Learn how to read drawings if this is also not something you already know how to do - it will help when working with architects and engineers. Take internships as early as possible so that by the time you graduate college or otherwise complete your education program, there's plenty of professional experience to show for it. Look into entry level positions in companies that sell landscape materials or provide landscaping services.

    You can pursue a degree in Landscape Design or Interior Design.
    Professional design work requires years of education and practice, so becoming a designer is rarely an overnight process. If you're interested in the field, just experiment with some different types of design and find your niche! Style is personal thing to find out for yourself. There's no "one size fits all" style--it depends on you as an individual.
