    Firstly, you need to be a high school graduate. Secondly, have taken some plant science and architecture courses. Thirdly, work on landscaping summer jobs while attending university or trade college. Fourthly, take an internship in landscape architecture for a year or so before being certified.
    Landscape architects typically obtain their professional certification after graduating from 4-5 years of post-secondary schooling that combines practical experience with academic instruction in landscape design and management. Landscape designers often study at colleges with focused programs or universities with well established undergraduate departments offering curricula in environmental studies that reflect the profession's interdisciplinary interests and competencies which are broad ranging as landscapes is considered to be "where ecology meets design".
