Job Description for Landscape Architect
Landscape architects operate in much the same was as traditional architects. They are responsible for both the functional and aesthetic layout of a design. The principal difference is in the medium in which they work. Landscape architects use living canvases, such as grasses, flowers and trees, as well as traditional construction materials such as concrete to enhance and beautify outdoor spaces. Landscape architects design and plan out green spaces for a number of different clients. They can work on large-scale projects such as public use spaces like parks and recreational areas, as well as major commercial and industrial sites. In these instances, landscape architects often work closely with local government commissions and traditional architects when planning out the ideal landscape to enhance and complement the buildings they accompany. Landscape architects also work on smaller projects, such as private homes. In these instances, they will work closely with the homeowner to create a living landscape that suits the individual's personal taste.
