I am a senior landscape architecture student at Michigan State University. One of the most important things I would recommend, and if given the opportunity, I would redo, is my plant knowledge. The classes I took in school did very little to teach me a solid plant vocabulary. The knowledge I have gained came from working in the industry. During my first 2-3 years in school, I worked for a design build firm in my home town. For the last two years or so, I have been on my own. I opened a design build firm in East Lansing (where I go to school) and focus on residential landscapes.

Without this real-world experience, I do not feel I would be adequately prepared to do any worthwhile designing.

Good Luck with school, and where are you going to be attending?
