If you enjoy planning, planting, and maintaining your own garden, you might want to turn your hobby into a career as a landscaper or groundskeeper. As a student of landscaping, you'll learn about horticulture, the science of growing plants. Horticulture covers such topics as plant growth, nutrition, and identification as well as pruning, fertilization, and pest management.

There’s more to this major than horticulture, though. You'll also learn basic design and drafting, cost estimation, equipment operation and maintenance, personnel supervision, and business practices. These skills prepare you for working for others or running your own landscaping business.
