HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
Landscape designers turn outdoors spaces into functional and attractive places for their customers. They meet with clients to ascertain their wants and needs, draw up plans, select plants, and propose their ideas to clients. Those ideas may include plant beds, water features, decking and patios, walls, walkways, pools, and small structures. Once the design has been solidified, the designer will oversee the project.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
A self-employed landscape designer needs no official training, though it would likely help in gaining new clients. Most design firms will require a certain level of training for their designers, whether that be an associate’s (two-year) degree in landscape design, a bachelor’s degree, a specific certification, or some degree of personal experience in the field.
