A landscape architect is an educated and trained professional that performs all tasks related to landscaping the outdoors for any kind of project. Most landscape architects work with a fairly good sized team that handle different aspects of the overall design. It is a very creative job as they must analyse various options before coming out with a pertinent plan. It is also the job of the architect to design landscaping that observes all the rules and regulations of public safety.

A landscape designer is someone who designs landscapes but does not possess the license for large projects and in most cases is not a trained professional. Since the job has a lot to do with creativity, people who have a sense for landscaping are usually quite successful in this field. The main focus of the designer is to add beauty to the landscape according to the needs of their particular clients.
