What’s the difference between Landscape

Designers take much of their class work in horticulture. This includes plant
varieties, soils, plant science, insects and diseases and then on plant layout so
for just plant stuff they are great. But they don’t get much training with
hardscape, outdoor room layout construction, drainage lighting etc.


Architects have a longer education with slightly less horticulture, plant
science insects and diseases but getting a full version of grades, drainage,
outdoor space design, construction, construction management, hardscape material
and how they are built and interact with each other.  Human usage of outdoor space, swimming pools, lighting, fire and water usage, retaining walls,  construction engineering, irrigation systems and the intergradation of all of these aspects.
