What does a Landscape Manager do?

A Landscape Manager oversees landscaping projects in private residences or community areas. You might come up with a design for an area including plans and costings. Landscape Managers may liaise with clients on designs and source landscaping materials. You might prepare areas for work and plant trees and shrubs. Landscape Managers also construct pathways and retaining walls and install other features such as sculptures or seating.

Landscape Managers should be organised and able to work to a deadline and a budget. You’ll need a good understanding of horticulture and should enjoy working outdoors. It’s important that you can communicate well with clients and understanding their needs. Landscape Managers should have good leadership skills and be able to manage a team of workers.
