Landscape Horticulture and Design fuses the creative aspects of art and design with the technical and scientific aspects of horticulture. These two unique but equally rewarding fields encompass the analysis, planning, design, and implementation and management of natural and built environments. Technology plays and important role in landscape horticulture and design - allowing today's professionals to use advanced tools to map out projects, perform detailed analysis, run businesses, and quickly revise and update designs and business plans.

Landscape Horticulture and Design graduates find a wide range of employment opportunities. Landscape designer. Greenhouse manager. Golf course superintendent. Plant breeder. Florist. Garden center owner. Nursery wholesaler. These careers and more are shared by hundreds of Landscape Horticulture and Design alumni. While some students enter the workforce right after college, others choose to further their education in graduate school, studying things like plant pathology, genetics, physiology, and public horticulture administration.
