Landscape and Turfgrass Technology
The Landscape and Turfgrass Technology program is designed for students interested in working outdoors to provide quality recreational and working environments.
The program's diverse training gives students knowledge
of plants that range from flowers to turfgrass to trees and shrubs, as well as the skills needed to properly maintain these plants. Students will also learn entrepreneurial skills to operate a business, as well as how to purchase and maintain the equipment they will be using.
Graduates will be equipped to succeed in a wide variety of jobs, including working with golf courses, parks and conservation departments, athletic fields, greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers, and lawn care and landscape companies. Many may choose to immediately or eventually open their own businesses in the Landscape and Turfgrass industry.
