Landscaping Schools and Colleges in the U.S.

Undergraduate landscaping programs usually carry the title of landscape architecture or ornamental horticulture. Master's degree programs and above often specialize further, offering studies in environmental planning or another specialty area.

How to Select a Landscaping School

Landscaping credentials are offered by 2- and 4-year colleges and by graduate schools. In deciding what type of school to attend, students may take into consideration the level of degree they wish to obtain, length of degree program, cost and location.

Consider the following when looking for landscaping schools:

  • The first factor most students take into account when selecting a school for landscaping is the type of institution they want to attend.
  • Students interested in a landscape architecture program should look for accreditation by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB).
  • The geographical location of a landscaping school affects the approaches of the craft, and students will also want to consider whether they want to study landscaping in an urban or rural environment.
