Horticultural Technology: Landscape Construction and Management Concentration A.A.S.
The Horticultural Technology program is being discontinued and is not accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. Currently enrolled students will have access to courses and resources until they graduate in May 2019.
Beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year, the Horticulture Technology: Landscape Construction and Management program will no longer be accepting new students. Current Thompson School students in this program will continue to have access to the same high-quality education and resources until they graduate in 2019.
Landscape construction and management has been projected to be one of the fastest growing service industries of the coming decade. It is a field that also offers unparalleled aesthetic satisfaction and meaningful reward. To succeed in the landscape industry increasingly requires a degree of technical and scientific expertise, as well as creativity, artistry, and problem-solving skills. Students in the landscape operation concentration gain a solid foundation by completing core requirements in the fundamentals of plant growth and development, soils, plant identification, pruning, and plant health care. They then complete a series of landscape maintenance, construction, and business courses. This combination prepares them to become successful members of the landscape industry. In their classes, students meld theory and practice, and then apply what they learn in weekly lab periods and on-site visits to area operations.
