Landscaping and gardening are great careers for people who like to work primarily outdoors. Landscapers are mostly concerned with the places where plants grow and how the land is used, whereas gardeners pay most of their attention to the plants themselves. Some of these occupations are the same as they have been for thousands of years, and some are new, made possible by computers and other scientific advances. In this insightful volume, readers investigate a wide range of jobs and responsibilities, including landscape architects and designers concentrating on community planning, environmental restoration, or therapeutic gardens; landscapers working at nurseries and greenhouses, golf courses, sports complexes (as turf specialists), and gardening TV shows; and arborists earning their living as tree surgeons at arboreta and botanical gardens. Such practical details as job preparation and training, professional certification, networking, compiling a rsum, and the pros and cons of being your own boss are considered.
