      In this major, students receive a well-rounded education that integrates aesthetic design with applied installation and maintenance skills. Students gain hands-on experience designing and planning landscape projects in addition to pouring concrete, planting trees, shrubs, and flowers, and all aspects of small-scale residential landscape production from start to finish.
      The core curriculum includes preparatory courses in chemistry, mathematics, biology, design, and graphics. Required program courses emphasize the plant sciences, soil sciences, design, and construction.
