The course provides knowledge and vocational specific skills in the planning, installation and management of vegetation across a range of urban landscape applications. The four core subjects encompass critical learning around the science, function and identification of landscape plants, as well as their propagation, cultivation and use. They also deliver outcomes important in the horticulture of urban landscapes, particularly in relation to soils, water, growing conditions and maintenance. Employment outcomes can be found in technical and planning roles in the areas of open space and landscape management, revegetation and restoration works and horticultural maintenance. Further study pathways are available to the Graduate Diploma and Master of Urban Horticulture.
