Landscaping involves the design, construction and maintenance of urban and rural environments – to develop ‘greener living’ in these areas. It’s a real government focus and includes everything from gardens, parks, streets, waterways, leisure facilities and open spaces through to large urban redevelopments. There are fantastic career opportunities as the landscape industry is made up of nearly 8,000 businesses employing around 140,000 people, including local authority departments, heritage garden attractions and commercial landscape companies.

"Myerscough ticked all the right boxes for the landscape studies that I had my heart set on. The Level 3 Diploma course is brilliant, and I particularly liked the balance between practical and theory-based work."
