Landscape architects
Description: Landscape architects make areas such as parks, malls, and golf courses beautiful and useful. They decide where the buildings, roads, and walkways will go, and how the flower gardens and trees should be arranged. They create designs, estimate costs, and check that the plans are being carried out correctly. Some work for major companies, but many are self-employed.
