Landscape horticulture is the art of selecting, handling and utilizing ornamental trees, shrubs, and turf grass for the design, development and maintenance of public and private landscape spaces. A landscape horticulturist prepares soil and cultivates, prunes, and irrigates plants to maintain plant health. They also control plant pests using integrated pest management techniques.
