I interviewed my dad (Mike), he is a Landscape Architect. I asked him about how long it took him to get to where he is now and how many years in university he had to study. He said that it took almost his entire life to get to where he is now and he had to be in university for 4 years to become a senior Landscape Architect. While he was building up enough money to create his own business he worked at Lincoln University and at Ready Lawn. He said that he likes his job because its always exciting and he gets to work with a whole bunch of people when he designs with a group.
