Landscape Gardener

Landscape gardeners develop, maintain and remodel gardens and landscapes. They may also help to design garden layouts. While this primarily involves gardening, a landscape gardener may also be involved in installing walls and other structures. They generally start a job by sketching all buildings on a property, looking at the natural environment and soil quality. Once they have a plan of the area, they can develop a design. This may involve laying pathways and retaining walls and so on, before planting trees, shrubs and flowerbeds until the desired look is achieved. It takes a good eye to be a landscape gardener, as well as an understanding of how to best manipulate and make the best of the natural environment.
