Landscape Management involves the management of designed landscapes and countryside from urban parks to nature reserves and natural parks. Landscape managers are involved in planning and managing the use of landscape and resources for the benefit of society and nature. This could involve visual and environmental impact assessment, producing management plans, producing food management and sustainable urban drainage schemes as well as habitat conservation and rural resource management.

Most landscape managers are members of the landscape institute, the professional organisation for landscape architects.
