Landscape Installation and Maintenance: A Junior College Curriculum Guide.
Matthews, Ralph E.
Increasing interest in landscaping resulting from a growth in construction, the recent national emphasis on beautification, and expansion of outdoor recreational facilities has created a demand for personnel trained in landscape installation and maintenance. This guide provides suggestions for: (1) initiating one- and two-year programs in landscape horticulture, including available program assistance, the advisory committee, and relations with the community; (2) developing the curriculum, including courses, curriculum programs, and work experience programs; (3) selecting instructors and facilities, including sources of instructors, physical facilities, and instructional equipment; (4) enrolling the student; and (5) placing graduates. Graduates may be employed in state, city, and county governments, school districts, cemeteries, parks and recreation agencies, golf courses, industrial sites, offices, and private companies. They may also be self-employed. (MC)
