    A landscape architect's salary varies depending on the type of work they are undertaking, their geographic location, their years of experience and level in the profession. Landscape architects typically have to earn a Bachelor's degree, though some states require just a high school diploma or other post-secondary education. Positions are either entry level where someone is hired with no professional experience to perform clerical work at an hourly rate or as an assistant for less complex projects or as the head of a consulting company. For more complex projects such as urban design and planning; positions are competitive and generally higher paying for instance while salaries may start out at six figures per year, they can go much higher.

    It depends on many factors, the average salary of a landscape architect varies across the nation. For instance, what city are you in and how much experience do you have? Do they specialize in commercial, residential or both? Furthermore, it's important to note that there are three categories of landscape architects - those who work for private practices, those who run their own firms and those who work for an agency. According to records from 2006-2015 compiled by a global database of salaries, the average salary for Landscape Architects working in the United States was $36/hour with varying salaries based on location (in Los Angeles County) starting from a low of just over $22/hour.

    A landscape architect will make anywhere from $60,000-$90,000 a year. In the United States, many states require landscape architects to be registered with appropriate government agencies. For example, a person who wants to register as an architect in North Carolina has design experience as well as high school math and science credits on their resume. Landscape architects have internships specific to this profession which include designing landscapes for parks and the like. However they need professional education in architecture before they may sit for exams and become professionally licensed. In North Carolina these design experiences are offered through two-year degrees or four-year degrees within schools of architecture such as those at NCSU College of Design Arts and Architecture.

    Landscape architects usually specialize in a few different types of projects including commercial landscaping, public parks and recreation areas, or the design of residential yards. Landscape architects are also responsible for sites that need regulation or enhancement to comply with governmental-driven development plans. They determine the materials and techniques that will be used on the project, oversee all construction from planning stages through completion phases (including estimating costs), as well as prepare site plans and drawings for review by clients and civic authorities before proceeding with any work. Income levels vary based on geographical location where they practice and experience level in this career field.

    I am not sure of the precise salary, but I know that average construction cost estimator salaries fall in the range of $15-$26 per hour. a landscape architect would make between $27-42k per year. The median salary is just over 34k annually and does not take experience into account which could increase yearly income figures significantly! The best answer to give someone who asks what kind of wage an individual will earn ranges heavily on their previous education and experience level. For example, if you are looking for a pay figure for an entry level position which can vary drastically depending on whether or not one has completed any additional courses.
