    The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is a professional organization dedicated to supporting landscape architects. Sometimes students enroll in programs with interior design basics, followed by training in landscape design. One of the most popular degrees for this field, and one designed specifically for it, is the Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from Virginia Tech.
    One popular choice at the bachelor's level is combining a degree program that includes both architecture and horticulture or botany. These majors have courses that range from designing home landscapes to public spaces such as urban parks, suburban developments, lodges around lakes or golf courses, bush gardens on estates or airports and ball fields echoed among residential neighborhoods

    Your first step in becoming a landscape architect is to enroll in an accredited four year program, which generally are design courses of studies such as architecture or interior design.Landscape architects and designers must not only have creativity and strong drawing skills they also need a foundation of classical art education, botany, chemistry, woodworking, math or physics. There are two types of degrees for landscape architecture - Bachelor's and Masters. Many aspiring professionals find jobs with different employers before they make the attempt at obtaining one for themselves. One's marketability depends on which degree you acquire as well as your placement records during school.

    If you're not sure what to do after college, but know that you like working with plants and building spaces, then Landscape Architecture might be a good choice. This can be a two year degree or four year degree. Landscape designers can also learn about architecture by studying Interior Design (three years). Interior Designers learn about space planning and design while learning some landscape design principles as well. After finishing both degrees, you could work in a firm designing both indoor and outdoor components. Or if some of your interests are more focused on one than the other, you could pursue just one degree instead of the recommended dual-degree in Landscape Architecture + Interior Design.
