    Depending on the type of landscape design that you want to do, it will largely depend on whether or not a degree is required. A horticulture degree or botany degree might be needed for design related to plants of any kind, or someone who wants to study and work with natural phenomena such as erosion, flooding, etc. Interior designers may prefer a degree in interior design and are usually skilled in decorating multiple spaces as well as developing floor plans for new structures buildings.

    Yes. In this case, a Bachelor's degree in interior design is needed, and a certification (such as the Certified Interior Designer) could be necessary.
    The qualifications for an interior designer will vary depending on what discipline they specialize in; for example, a fashion designer or graphic artist might not need any formal training for their position. Interior designers must know not only how to use CAD software to create drawings that show layouts of proposed designs but also furniture styles and colors, various types of building materials (wooden window frames or brick walls), as well as building codes pertaining to safety issues such as fire protection systems and accessibility requirements. Typically interior designers study art history noting where the modern creative process has changed over time.

    Answer: Landscape design professions differ from landscape consulting professions. Prior to 2000, a landscape designer typically held a degree in the subject they were practicing or an associated field like virtual simulation. Some schools now offer degrees in Landscape Architecture or Landscape and Garden Design.
    In interior design it is not usually required that one holds a degree before entering the profession of Interior Design; but this will vary on where you live and your work experience. New York City, for example, requires an individual to have at least four years of full-time professional experience under their belt before they are granted membership with CCID (New York's chapter of ASID). However, other areas may require less schooling while still providing guidance for those with little to no prior construction.

    Landscape Designers require a four year degree in either landscape design, environmental studies or horticulture. These degrees are offered in most schools of architecture and landscape architecture.
    A Degree is not required but it does help you land a better job as designers with training do have more options than those without formal education. In addition, some colleges have designed online programs for students who would like to pursue this profession but lack the money or time for an on-campus program; these can be found by doing internet searches for "online campus." A degree also gives you industry recognition which helps when networking with other experienced designers with similar interests.
    The Society of Landscape Architects offers a map to over 300 schools that offer programs related to Landscape design.

    Landscape design needs a degree in fields such as landscape architecture, environmental science, plant sciences, engineering and horticulture. Interior design is more of an art-based field but does require some knowledge on terrain structures.

    Yes, it's required to get a landscape design degree. You can also learn about interior design as a self-taught course over time.
    Many people don't realize they can learn about interior design as a self-taught process. Although it may not lead to the same recognition and qualification as those with degrees from accredited programs, studying at home does have its perks. The best benefit of all is that you control the timing and pacing of your learning experience without having to worry about classes or homework deadlines; while you're spending some hours absorbing information, chances are someone else is picking up more than their share.
