Job Description for Landscape Designer

A landscape designer is responsible for creating feasible, aesthetically pleasing landscapes for clients. At the beginning of the landscape project cycle, the landscape designer works with a team to prepare a winning bid for a contract. They do this by gathering data about the project site and the materials which will be necessary to create a landscape in accordance with the requirements the client has set. Armed with this information, the landscape designer creates a visual representation of the final product; they often use AutoCAD and other software packages to create a digital model, although physical models built with craft materials may also be used. After creating the model, specifications, and cost estimate, the bid is submitted to the client. If the bid is accepted, landscape construction begins.

Landscape Designer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Landscape Designer?

Landscape Designer in Portage:
Pros: The design aspect is my favorite. I am an artist at heart and love the creativity. The people I work with are great, yet I do love being able to work alone most of the time.
Cons: Everything else I have to do, bookkeeping, social media, marketing, etc. I just want to design. I would love to be able to work from home two-three days a week. The office really needs to be bigger and fixed up a bit. The pay is good...but I wouldn't be able to live the rest of my life off of this pay.
