Landscape architects create places for people to live, work and play and places for plants and animals to thrive. Landscape architects also speak up for and care for our landscapes.
Landscape architects study, plan, design and manage spaces which are both sustainable and aesthetically pleasing. Landscape architects work with architects, town planners, civil engineers and a host of other professionals. They are leading the way in tackling climate change and also helping to regenerate towns and cities across the world.
Many British landscape architects live and work abroad and many based in the UK have overseas clients. Travel can be a big part of the job.
