Architects, Landscape - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 17% of landscape architects are self-employed.

Most of the work is in urban or suburban areas. Some landscape architects work in rural areas, especially those who work for the federal government.

Major employers:

  • Landscape architecture firms
  • Landscaping services
  • Federal, state, and local government agencies

Outlook

Demand is expected to decline this occupation. Advances in technology are expected to increase landscape architect's productivity, reducing the demand for more workers. The public's increased demand for sustainable landscaping will create some growth.

Competition will be very strong for the most well-known companies. However, there should be opportunities for entry-level landscape architects who have completed an internship.
