Course details

People who are successful in this industry have:

  • An interest in plants and outdoor structures
  • Great communication skills
  • Creative and unique designs
  • The desire to work outdoors
  • Innovative and inventive thinking
  • Good leadership qualities
  • Excellent time management skills

Assessments give you the opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned and to identify the knowledge or skills that may need further development. In this course you will undertake:

  • Written assessments which may include research projects and reports
  • Practical assessments which may include design productions on Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) software

The Certificate III in Landscape Design, is where youll gain all your underpinning experience and where youll apply what youre learning in real and simulated environments. The Certificate III satisfies industry and job requirements, providing more potential for employment opportunities, while still developing your foundational skills.

The Certificate IV course does not cover the underpinning experience gained in the Certificate III. This course focuses on supervisory skills to oversee a team of landscapers. Accreditation in this course (or equivalent) is also highly recommended for entry into the Diploma of Landscaping.

The Diploma is for students who want to manage, analyse, evaluate and develop landscape designs. It encompasses writing reports, plans and tenders. It is different to the Certificate III and IV, as it does not focus on underpinning plant and material knowledge.

You will gain hands-on experience in:

  • Designing and implementing environmentally sympathetic and innovative landscape designs
  • Preparing computer-aided landscape design drawings
  • Identifying, selecting, and specifying plants for landscapes
  • Preparing estimates, quotes, tenders and reports

TAFE NSW is known for delivering theory along with practical, hands-on learning. You will work on real world projects, such as:

  • Planning and designing landscape structures
  • Planning and designing landscape features
  • Creating project briefs
  • Using emerging technology such as Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) software

Specialist opportunities can arise in your local area, allowing for new construction projects such as at local schools or at not-for-profit community centres.

TAFE NSW offers you a range of online and on-campus study environments - industry specific computer rooms, simulated workplaces, study areas, presentation areas and general student facilities - to enhance your learning and employability.

Demand for landscape design is growing due to the encouraging NSW Government policy around planning and developing green spaces and urban parks to help ameliorate the effects of a warming climate. Worldwide demand for sympathetic landscape designs is also growing.

Every property has a landscape of some description, whether it is small, medium or large scale. Our well-being relies on well-designed outdoor spaces to relax, enjoy, and share with other people. The boom in urban growth has created a push for outdoor spaces, which requires landscapers to create and develop projects. Redevelopment of new and existing areas ensures work is always available. The future of creating sympathetic landscapes will always remain constant.
