The Landscaping Operations program prepares the landscape workers to be employed by landscapers, municipalities, government departments and nurseries.
After working for a few years, some may even start up their own business. Landscape workers install gardens and maintain grounds. They also build wooden structures such as benches, arbours and pergolas, build stone walls and rock gardens, and install concrete features such as walkways and patios.
Landscape workers work with inert and living materials such as flowers, trees and shrubs. They are concerned with sustainable development and use pesticides in conformity with legislation as part of an integrated pest management program.
Landscape workers generally work in teams, referring to plans and specifications and using tools and machinery. They operate excavators and compacting equipment and handle measuring instruments and hand tools. Their work may require them to communicate with clients, suppliers and other workers.
This course is only offered in English.
