Our curriculum also includes modules on living materials such as flowers, trees and shrubs, landscape planning, understanding job specifications, and using landscaping tools and machinery. Students often work in teams to enhance the creative, hands-on learning process and the program is complemented by a field placement in a professional landscaping setting. A nature’s lover dream, this program will prepare you for a career in the great outdoors.

A diploma could lead to careers in general landscaping; lighting; irrigation; stone, paver, and brick work; exterior wood construction; or as a horticulture, plant, and garden specialist.
