More about Landscape Gardening

Landscape gardeners can expect to work on everything from a city park to a country garden, but always with the aim of creating an oasis of beautiful green tranquility.

It means they will be involved in the project from the original concept and design to landscaping, constructing, and planting using a knowledge of soil and weather conditions as well as how plants and trees grow.

They need great creativity and an ability to visualize how designs will look in reality, as well as an appreciation of the impact of a project on the existing natural environment and wildlife.
