Outside Magazine Says Landscape Architecture a “Best Job”

If you find yourself waiting in line at the grocery store in the next few weeks, be sure to pick up the May issue of Outside Magazine for their “Top 50 Best Jobs” cover story (for some reason, reporter Anderson Cooper is on the cover). Landscape architecture is one of the top jobs. Outside describes what LAs do as: “Create natural settings–parks, waterfronts, campuses, parking lots–that are pretty and functional. Increasingly, this means reinventing contaminated sites like old factories and decommissioned mines, often using vegetation and other bioremediation so that sites, in effect, clean themselves.”

That description strikes The Dirt as a little narrow, but we’ll let it slide. The full article is not online at present.
