    The education for becoming a landscape architect usually begins with a four year bachelor's degree, but those who want to work as an intern in this field will need two years of postgraduate work. A student could study design, horticulture, architectural studies or urban design.
    If you are unable to get into school immediately after high school graduation, there are many other careers that can be pursued while working on your degree. The most important key is continued interest and involvement in the world of landscape architecture/design. This shows prospective graduate schools (or future employers) that you have the serious interest as well as practical experience needed to run with any opportunity that may arise down the road!

    A landscape architect is a professional that designs, creates, and supervises the construction of gardens, public parks, and conservation areas. Henceforth; the degree required for this profession is undergraduate college.
    Images are an integral part to any landscape architects design development meaning that knowledge in photography would also be advantageous to have in the profession. It usually takes around four years of study before one can obtain an undergrad degree in landscape architecture but some universities offer a 3 year accelerated curriculum which could reduce the amount of time needed down to three years after all sections are completed successfully.
    A qualified candidate needs not only have good knowledge about how plants from various regions will react together or with specific climates but also should know how different types of water supplies..

    A degree in landscape architecture will give you the necessary competencies to obtain a job as a landscape architect. A four-year bachelor's degree with an emphasis on design is required, and it takes three to four years of study before graduating from the program.
    In order to be called a "landscape architect", one must receive licensure from their state board and pass an ASLA examination. All states require applicants for licensure have at least a master's degree, although some work experience can be substituted for that requirement in a few states. Graduates from these programs are generally qualified for employment in public agencies or private enterprises engaged in any phase of development, appraisal, design, engineering construction management or related responsibilities pertaining to land use projects.

    Compounding the task at hand, to be a landscape architect you will need both an undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture and also a graduate degree.
    Landscape architects are sometimes called urban designers or greenspace professionals. They create stunning outdoor spaces like parks, playgrounds, plazas and gardens while preserving green space in crowded neighborhoods. Ultimately, they want to protect plants and animals from human encroachment while enhancing the built environment for our enjoyment. Consequently their ideas can be implemented on an enormous (perhaps national) scale but also take into account your individual yard which might simply be big enough for a small stretch of lawn with one tree.

    A landscape architect is a professional that specializes in the design of outdoor spaces, including public and private properties. Some landscape architects are also involved with community building and educational issues, such as teaching classes or running workshops.
    Simply put, a Landscape Architect is someone who plans how land will be divided up into different parcels for residential or commercial purposes to accommodate its natural resources while taking cultural values (such as customs) and economic benefits in mind. A degree in Landscape Architecture would be beneficial but not necessary because there are many certification programs available to get you started on your career path. It does require planning experience by working as an architectural project manager for a few years before you can qualify to take the tests required for registration and state licenses.

    The landscape architects I know don't have any academic degree requirements. It has been my experience that a culturally-aware working knowledge of ecology and the natural sciences is an inherent requirement for doing landscape architecture. This ranges from understanding botanical properties of native plant communities, to interpreting soil patterns and slope gradients (and how they affect engineering), to understanding hydrology in order to make better water resource management decisions. The stories behind the sites we work on involve people, plants, animals as well as geology- its critical that this history be protected and restored when possible.
