Have you ever seen landscapers challenge on HGTV? They are pretty competitive on there. I'm interested on feedback on this too. This is one of the jobs that came up on my High School 'future jobs' test they make you take in 9th grade (you put in your interests & they give you a list of jobs that match)

This was pretty much a follow-up of my graphic design thread, and I was just wanting to compare the job markets in those fields.

landscape architects take on big projects like developments, city planning etc. not really residential like the ones on HGTV
I read that this profession in is demand. I would advise you to do more research

You considering job in those fields????????????????

Well if theres NEW

development happening EG a booming tourist town perhaps a lake or skiing destination or....
Beach side area

there will be a lot of jobs in that area...

If that area is isolated from main centres usually the pay will be more

well....

thats the story i know of..........

usually You are only a draughter/Cad drawer for first year/years... etc....
later on in life u design...
Landscape architecture... Would be easier to set up own practice in NZ since lack of laws regarding landscape design eg buildings have countless council regulations ...

:D
