What you can expect to experience while on the job
Employment of landscape architects is projected to grow 4 percent from 2018 to 2028, about as fast as the average for all occupations. The need for planning and developing new and existing landscapes for commercial, industrial, and residential construction projects is expected to drive employment growth. In addition, environmental concerns and increased demand for sustainably designed buildings and open spaces should spur demand for the services of landscape architects. For example, landscape architects are involved in the design of green roofs, which are covered with vegetation and help reduce air and water pollution as well as decrease the costs of heating and cooling a building. Efforts to conserve water and prevent waterway pollution are expected to continue, especially in areas prone to drought. Landscape architects will be needed to design plans for managing storm-water runoff in these efforts.Read More
