What is Landscape Management?

Landscape Management is a $70 billion dollar industry centered on designing, building and maintaining beautiful outdoor and indoor environments. This includes everything around you, from parks and properties to indoor malls and offices. 

BYU offers one of the industry's best programs, one that gives students hands-on experience through small class sizes, career fairs, clubs and competitions. These opportunities connect students with each other, employers and help equip each graduate with the skills necessary to successfully appreciate, create, install and manage beautiful landscapes.
