Gather the Right Tools to Design Your Landscapes
Landscape design is an excellent career choice for people who are creative and enjoy plants and outdoor environments. Design skills are also an excellent complement to work as a landscape contractor, landscape-industry business owner, in horticultural plant marketing and sales, and in sustainable landscape creation and restoration. The green industry is always in need of capable landscape designers. The Landscape Design ITS program is designed to give students a strong background both in the principles of landscape design and creative expressions in the landscape, as well as how to communicate design ideas visually. The material pallet of landscape design is thoroughly explored. This includes how plants grow and stay healthy and how plants are best used in the landscape for visual, practical and ecological effect. This also includes how material construction and properties of built elements in the landscape create beautiful spaces for practical use with water features, patios, decks, walkways, walls, topographic changes, fencing, structures, and formal and naturalized plantings.
