Landscape Construction & Design
2-year AAS degree

A well-designed landscape adds beauty and value to any home or business. Proper installation of that design ensures that it will provide a functional outdoor space for years to come. In the Landscape Construction & Design program, design students focus on creating those designs utilizing plant knowledge and artistic principles. Students will develop problem solving and communication skills as well as work with computer design software. New trends in sustainability and landscape maintenance will also be explored.

The construction track in this program allows students the opportunity to actually build what a designer would put on paper. These students will learn site layout, lighting and hardscape installation techniques. Classes in this part of the program would include information about the latest trends in construction materials, equipment and green building.
