Landscape Architecture - The Career

US News published an article last year - Best Careers 2009: Landscape Architect.  What has been most rewarding for me to be in this line of work is knowing that every outdoor space I help design is not just about designing an awesome place to spend time, but it's always about the environment. The article further explains that, indeed, being a landscape architect calls for extensive skills with beautification as well as understanding the science of integrating an outdoor space into a sustainable ecosystem.
