Summary: 
In addition to the better known arenas of parks, streetscapes, and public plazas, landscape architects are trained in visual quality assessment, public facilitation and mediation, environmental impact studies, wetlands mitigation, urban design, historic preservation, large and small scale master planning, erosion control, and landscape water management. In addition to technical design, landscape architects incorporate social and behavioral elements throughout the entire design process.
