    A person considering a technical career can either opt for an undergraduate degree in landscape architecture, or graduate from an accredited college with any major and then take the necessary classes to qualify as a landscape architect. An undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture is about four years of coursework (including two summers). The typical salary range for newly graduated professionals ranges between $60k and $130k, plus bonus packages which have been known to be higher than some engineers'. The job outlook for this profession is good owing to its strong ties with the economy and growth potential. An individual who completes degrees at both levels would also be able to fall back on his/her chosen profession.

    A landscape architect generally requires a bachelor's degree in landscape architecture. The rest of the requirements are typically set by individual states. Landscape architects can work in many different careers related to their trade, such as urban design, golf course design and construction, through public parks department or conservancy groups; residential landscaping installation for private homes; through park maintenance departments within urban or light rural areas and some even run gardening advice columns. Some may decide to pursue a post-graduate degree in an allied discipline that complements their primary field of study.

    A landscape architect needs to attend an accredited college or university for at least four years, preferably in the arts field. Landscape design is a visually oriented profession that seeks to provide successful outdoor environments by arranging plants, water, structures, where applicable, and natural features in distinctive ways. Landscape architects will need two Bachelor's degrees in architecture, building science (BS) and environmental design studies (EDS) along with training through partnerships with experts and extensive practical experience under supervision before they can be licensed as a professional landscape architect.

    Landscape Architects are professionals who plan and design built and natural environments. They combine art, ecology, horticulture, engineering and architecture to create a landscape that is socially acceptable. A degree in landscape architecture is a four-year undergraduate degree that prepares students for entry into the profession. The first two years are spent on general education, and the last two years focus mostly on more specific topics in the field, such as site design, grading plans, materials and management. A few institutions offer graduate programs exclusively for landscape architects, but many allow graduates of bachelor's programs' a one or two-year master's program to prepare them for a career in their profession.
