The Difference Between a Landscape Architect and a Landscape Gardener

When it comes to garden design, it can be difficult to decide on an effective method to plan your garden, without looking towards professional services.

Therefore, many people decide to opt for a landscape architect or a landscape gardener in order to help them create their dream garden.

That said, many people aren’t always sure of the difference between a landscape architect and landscape gardener.

Here at Floral and Hardy, we have outlined the differences between a landscape architect and a landscape gardener below.

Landscape Architects

A landscape architect requires a degree in landscape architecture, as well as 3 years’ experience practicing as a landscape architect. Ultimately, a landscape architect needs a professional licence in order to practice under the name of a ‘Landscape Architect’.

Landscape Gardeners

A landscape gardener is similar, in practice, to a landscape architect. Although, in order to practice as a landscape gardener, you do not need any official qualifications. That said, many landscape gardeners will be well experienced and highly skilled in gardening, as well as garden planning and garden design.
