Landscapers meet clients, measure and draft plans, and design everything outside from outdoor rooms to pools, playgrounds, plants, and places — all to provide people leading busy lives with a beautiful home retreat to escape to.
Typically students will study the following programmes for two years to develop the skills and knowledge to work in landscape design and/or construction:
In the first semester, students will study the Applied Horticultural Services (Level 3) (Landscape Construction).
Students who choose to complete their study after the first semester will have the skills to work as a skilled labourer in this area.
Students who already have some experience in landscaping may be able to enter directly into Level 4. Contact us for more information.
At Level 4 students will choose their ‘strand’ of interest and study Landscape Construction or Landscape Design. Each program is one semester, a student can choose to do both strands one after the other if desired.
In landscape construction, students will hone their skills in construction and have the ability to choose optional areas of interest in stonework, brick and block work, and water features. This qualification assists you with the skills to becoming a team leader on a landscape site.
In landscape design, students will develop design skills enabling them to create simple home garden design plans, with hand and computer graphic representation, plant identification and planting design. You will also learn plan set out to assist and supervise on landscape sites.
Students will gain the New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture Services (Level 4) Landscape Design strand.
