    A landscape architect is a person who can specialize in any of the many aspects related to outdoor spaces, including biodiversity and the natural environment. It may also entail assistance with urban design, visiting sites for problems such as trash or broken trees, redesigning lawns and landscapes around homes for gardens.
    Landscape architects might get their start by working with nurseries or landscaping companies. There are schools that teach landscape architecture that offer degrees at either undergraduate or graduate levels. Some employers require applicants to be licensed by the Landscape Architects Registration Board (LARB) before they are hired.

    To become an accredited landscape architect, you need to take a minimum of 4 years of accredited architecture studies and graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture. Once you have your degree, if not already registered with NAAB (the national organization that registers landscape architects), submit two portfolio entries made up of site plans, sketches or renderings depicting designs for three residential sites. You must also pass a written exam created by NAAB that tests knowledge in the following areas: Site plan construction drawings; taxonomies and principles; planting materials and cultural practices; drainage systems and grading designations used on layout studies linking features on the site to topography, soil types, geology and slope gradients.

Next, most businesses require that you have 3-5 years of experience in your profession (in addition to having had at least one year experience in another type of design field). And finally, some general knowledge and/or skill with computer software programs are beneficial to becoming a landscape architect.

    The theory and practice of landscape architecture involves the use of engineering principles in the work. Landscape architects typically create sustainable designs that combine nature's beauty, functional elements, and water features with existing structures such as buildings or roads. The first profession to establish independent status from other arts around 1914-16, landscape architects are educated at over twenty four universities in the United States, more than those for any other professional design field.
    In order to become a licensed architect you need to study for a bachelor’s degree in either architecture or civil engineering before gaining five years experience gained while working under an appropriately qualified registered architect or engineer. To work on your own you must also have an additional two years prior qualification.
