Odds of Getting In

Landscape Design is one of the few horticultural industries that really appreciates formal education. When jobs are available, those with some sort of degree in Landscape Design or a related field are more desirable than those without. Larger landscape firms that design landscapes for the sort of new development that is always being developed hire new Landscape Designers on a relatively regular basis. (Even Landscape Designers eventually retire.) These larger firms are more selective though, and prefer those who did well in school and maybe have a bit of experience. Smaller firms are probably more desperate when they do hire, but rarely promise such reliable employment.
