Landscape Architect Job Description - Comments

While architects are concerned with building design, landscape architects work with the natural environment to create both beautiful and functional outdoor spaces. Parks, shopping centers, schools and many other locations benefit from careful planning by landscape architects. The field of landscape architecture also involves restoring natural areas damaged by the affects of industry or overuse. For anyone who loves nature, becoming a landscape architect may seem like an obvious choice. Keep in mind, though, that working as a landscape architect involves more than just working outside. During planning stages, landscape architects may spend most of their time behind a desk or attending meetings with clients. Because of this, communication skills and computer knowledge are important aspects of working as a landscape architect.
