Garden Landscaping Designer -

The Job description

Landscape designers throughout Suffolk are essentially designers of outdoor spaces, of any land open to the sky, including land lying around and between buildings.

Working throughout Suffolk landscapers ensure that any changes made to the natural environment are appropriate and sensitive, as well as innovative and aesthetically pleasing.

Landscapers’ projects can be both urban and rural and range from designing the layout of parks, gardens and housing estates to improving land affected by mineral extraction or motorway construction.

The work involves collaborating closely with landscape contractors, as well as other professionals, especially architects, and those working in surveying and engineering functions.
