    The time required to become a landscape designer depends on what your pedagogical goals are (specifically, there are different routes to becoming certified) and the extent of work experience you have. If your goal is to use little or no design skills in order to do mostly mowing, shrub trimming and digging, then the process might not take very long at all.

    Needless to say, this will vary dramatically depending on the type and size of the garden you have in mind. For example, if you're interested in becoming a small-scale landscaper for residential lawns, then four years may be good enough. As an interior designer generally requires at least five years of training and 10-15 years of experience before they can start their own firm. It also depends on your skill level; more experienced designers might be more efficient with less time than those without much experience. As an interior design intern, it's possible to negotiate a summer only contract that would allow you to complete your educational requirements over the course of one year if that is what suits your schedule best.

    If one completes the requirements for a bachelor's degree in landscape design, he or she will be ready for work less than four years after starting college. Before beginning interior design, one must have at least earned an associate's degree in the field and completed at least two years of technical education courses or education sequences. Once this is done, it should take about two to three years to complete a bachelor's degree program. You may also need to complete certification programs in order to practice independently within your jurisdiction and/or state.

    It takes about five years to become a landscape designer and around ten years for interior design.
    Landscape designers will typically have a degree or job experience in horticulture, botany, ecology and environmental studies. Interior designers are often trained who study architecture, art history, dance and chaos – though the list of requirements varies depending on the level of specialization such as residential or commercial design. So it's important to choose wisely when deciding what area you want to work in because fields like journalism require fewer years of training whereas certain university programs would only take two-years where interior designers need 10-years.

    Well, it depends on whether you are an interior designer that wants to focus in landscape design or if you would like to go into teaching. If you plan to teach then the process is a lot shorter than if not.
    If I were asking how long does it take for someone to become an interior designer with landscape design skills, then my answer would be two years of schooling or the equivalent amount of work experience combined with professional training and some schools offer this now too. Bottom line, it's best for people who want a career in design and communities where help is needed because designers make less money in metropolitan areas and locatable work isn't always there when they do need jobs.

    There are many pathways to becoming a landscape designer. One of the more common routes is through Community College or Vocational School, which usually takes about 2 years. After that, people will often continue their education by working as an intern at a landscaping firm for up to a year in order to get hands-on experience. An aspiring interior designer would also go through this process, only they would pursue vocational school or community college in interior design and work towards licensure before taking on an internship at a firm.
