Study With Us

A landscape architect is part artist, engineer, environmentalist, salesperson, and business manager. Landscape architects combine an artist’s creativity and inventiveness with the science of sustainable land management and the engineering of site structures, hardscapes, and land grading in a business setting. They design and plan new communities, parks, shopping developments, urban public spaces, and other outdoor environments.
