Working and living in South Florida in places like Miami, Key Largo, Tavernier, Islamorada, etc. is a true blessing. Obviously, the goal is to find something you love that can provide you with a living. Not as easy as it sounds but important. If you find it then..... BINGO, you have a tropical paradise in your back yard and activities in the sun all year round. Being from Philadelphia, especially this time of year, I have grown to love South Florida.
Talk about quality of life and horticulture, you hit the jackpot when you study a trade like landscape architecture. Landscape architecture and landscape design is a professional career with wonderful people doing something they love. It is a friendly, hard working group driven by a passion for design and landscape. The landscaping industry and working for a landscape company is certainly competitive but if you can create a niche and continue with landscaping education, there is potential for success.
