Landscape Architects

Outlook

Employment for landscape architects is expected to increase about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Although job opportunities are expected to be good, there will be strong competition for employment at top firms. The increase in demand for landscape architects is a result of several factors: growth of new construction and the redevelopment of existing sites, the availability of government funding for surface transportation and transit programs (such as pedestrian and bicycle trails and interstate highway construction and maintenance), growing public interest in green building practices such as green roofs, and the increase in city and environmental planning and historic preservation. Many job openings are expected to result from the need to replace experienced workers who leave the field. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that, in the future, landscape architects will be needed to help "manage stormwater run-off to avoid pollution of waterways and conserve water resources and avoid polluting waterways."
