Salary, Wages, Pay: Landscape Architects
In 2002, median annual earnings for landscape architects were $47,400. The middle 50 percent earned between $36,140 and $62,470. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $28,730 and the highest 10 percent earned over $79,620. Architectural, engineering, and related services employed more landscape architects than any other group of industries, and there the median annual earnings were $46,980 in 2002.
In 2003, the average annual salary for all landscape architects in the Federal Government in nonsupervisory, supervisory, and managerial positions was $68,959.
Because many landscape architects work for small firms or are self-employed, benefits tend to be less generous than those provided to workers in large organizations.
