Overview

Simply put, a landscaper earns a living by adjusting earth and water to be more aesthetically pleasing. Someone trained in landscaping might primarily work to improve upon an existing home & garden layout, or they might work in one of the more specialized areas of landscaping. Some of the specialties someone interested in landscaping might choose to pursue would be designing water gardens and fountains (aquascape), installing lawn sprinkler systems and drains (irrigation systems) or designing practical solutions for orchards and farms. Since educational requirements are not particularly strict for someone looking to break into the landscaping business, this might be a good choice for someone wanting to start a new career right away.
