Landscape Architect

Landscape Designer

  • Analyzes plants and soil to create a cohesive lawn and garden plan
  • Typically has a horticulture background


A landscape architect is often confused with a landscape designer, but there are differences between the two. While both are involved in designing landscapes and gardens, a landscape architect is also trained in handling challenging issues like steep slopes, irrigation and drainage, elevation problems, retaining walls, driveways, service lines, and entryways. Landscape architects are required to be licensed and hold undergraduate or higher degrees and often plan areas other than residential spaces including parks, waterfront developments, and commercial facilities.
