Whether your workplace is a field of growing crops, a desk in a high tech city centre office or a championship golf course, you’ll have plenty of options to branch out and specialise in one of the world’s fastest growing industries.
At Reaseheath we’ve recognised how important the ‘green industry’ is going to be in the future and we’ve invested £8.3 million into our National Centre for Horticulture, the Environment and Sustainable Technology.

“Landscape Architecture isn’t just about designing beautiful spaces, it’s about designing and overseeing projects which meet the needs of people and the environment.
“Recent events have shown how important trees and plants are for mental and physical health. As well as creating personal gardens for clients I’m interested in cityscapes, where you can be creative while making cities greener, healthier and more sustainable.
“I owe a lot to the five years I spent at Reaseheath – I gained so much confidence in my own ability. My diploma prepared me for my future life and my degree taught me how to prepare designs from client briefs. Being part of the student design and build team for Reaseheath’s show gardens at RHS Tatton Flower Show was great experience.”
