    Landscape architects make the world more beautiful by creating environments that serve both the people who live in them and the wildlife that live in it. First, they create a design that will work well for you with your unique topography and resources. Next, they select plants to use on your site based on the advice of regional and local experts like botanists or nursery managers, or by referring to publications such as The Hardy Plant Society's "A Gardener's Encyclopedia". And finally (though certainly not least!), they plan where to locate walkways and other structures necessary for equipment access.

    As long as your interest in landscape design meshes with a history of being an interior designer. You are capable of designing landscapes because you enjoy designing interiors and have the skillset for them. Starting to work in landscaping could be something that is rewarding for you if you're able to make enough money doing it.

    If you ask a lot of people what they think of when they hear the word "landscape architect", they'll say things like "nature" and "plants". These are both very accurate descriptors, as just about every landscape architect is required to study plant materials in great detail. However, between 75% and 98% of all landscape architects will also have an undergraduate degree in either architecture or design-related studies (might be interior design). That's because it takes a strong understanding of how buildings work to be able to work on them at a job site.
