Green Industry professionals who create green are those who design or build landscapes, hardscapes, and water features. These professionals utilize STEAM skills, like plant science, technology in the programs and tools used, engineering for safe and reliable builds, and math skills on a daily basis.
Landscape architects are licensed designers, who use drawing and design skills, cutting-edge technology, and deep knowledge of plants to create layouts and renderings for future and existing landscapes. Builders bring these ideas to life in the form of public and private gardens, green spaces, stone scapes, and more!
These types of careers allow for sustainability—providing the world with landscapes designed to conserve water, provide energy efficiency, purify the air, and help prevent erosion—not to mention what they create makes the world a more beautiful place.
Their designs can encourage a deep connection between people and the planet, by building aesthetically pleasing gardens and greenspaces for all to enjoy!
