Landscape Design Technology utilizes skills in design, plant information and installation, as well as construction techniques. Landscaping has an immediate visual impact on all properties. Landscape design is utilized in many areas of the “green” industry: Retail nurseries, design/build companies, golf courses, sports fields, amusement parks and government agencies. Sustainable landscaping techniques need to be implemented in all applications. This degree also incorporates the currently developing landscape guidelines for LEED certified buildings and BMP guidelines for site management.
