Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a practicing landscape architect and educator, Kelleann Foster has both the experience and academic knowledge to guide potential students in this quickly expanding field of design. In this practical handbook, she presents an overview of landscape architecture, touching on its definition and background, prior to a survey of the broad opportunities of work for diverse interests. The text contains a review of cutting-edge trends and technology in such careers. She concludes with advice on preparation for college; the different types of landscape architecture programs; the importance of internships in the educational experience; professional licensing; and a list of schools offering accredited programs." (Chicago Botanic Garden, 2010)

"The book includes every career type, from academic to national park designer, from a solo garden designer to an associate in the largest private landscape architecture and planning firm. Becoming a Landscape Architect is a solid and singular introduction to the range of landscape architecture work and what it takes in education and licensure to get there." (Landscape Architecture, May 2010)
