What is Landscape Technology?

Landscape Technology is the intersection of science, art, and trades. Unlike the large and sterile swaths of lawn and sculpted plants of the past, today’s landscapes not only have to be beautiful, functional extensions of indoor living areas, but they must be environmentally sound and serve as habitat for both humans and wildlife. PCC Landscape Technology (LAT) provides students the necessary cross-training of foundational knowledge and applied skills to be successful in a wide variety of industry-related careers. LAT has the following degree and certificates to allow for a special area of focus and multiple industry entry points.

AAS degrees
Less than 1 year certificates
