ASLA blog, THE DIRT, posted that Outside Magazine ranked Landscape Architecture in the “Top 50 Best Jobs”. In the May issue of Outside Magazine, they state that we, “Create natural settings–parks, waterfronts, campuses, parking lots–that are pretty and functional. Increasingly, this means reinventing contaminated sites like old factories and decommissioned mines, often using vegetation and other bioremediation so that sites, in effect, clean themselves.”
Um… is that all? Aside from being great PR for our profession, it seems that they are a bit limited in their understanding of our work. What do you think?
We also drive pick up trucks with big trailers and mow grass. How could they forget the most important aspect of our job?!? I mean the precision trim that we can give a shrub far surpasses that of any other landscaping profession.
