How much does a landscape architect earn?

Entry level graduates can expect to earn $30,000-$50,000/year depending on geographical location and the type of company. (example: private LA firm, multidisciplinary firm, municipal planning office, national park service, etc) Upon receiving licensure as a landscape architect, one can expect a substantial pay increase as your billable rate can increase as much as 50%.

Mid to senior level licensed landscape architects with 10-20 years experience can earn $60,000-$120,000 again, depending on geography and size of company. Earning potential can be much greater than this as an owner/principal of a private landscape architecture or multidisciplinary firm.
