Landscape Design - School of Design

Landscape Design

Ever dream of moving mountains?

Learn how to design, build and shape beautiful outdoor spaces in one of Canada's top Landscape Design programs.

You'll learn how to survey and analyze sites, select the vegetation and landscape materials, and plan the location of structures, roads, pathways, trees, shrubs, flower beds and decorative features.  Courses focus on design theory, plant identification, drafting, landscape and building materials and technologies. You'll get plenty of experience using industry software to create detailed site plans, and you'll even have the 100-acre Fanshawe campus to use as your canvas!

You'll also get great hands-on experience through two paid co-op work terms, plus, you'll have the opportunity to travel to Italy and Brazil to study some of the world's most historic cities! 

When you graduate, you'll have a huge job market to choose from, including residential and commercial property developers, municipalities, landscape architects, design-build firms, nurseries or start your own landscape consultant business! Or, you may choose to continue your education with advanced admission to the third year of Fanshawe's Bachelor of Applied Arts - Integrated Land Planning Technologies (ILP1) degree program, or the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree at the University of Guelph.

Landscape design is a three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program.
