Salary Survey Released, and Numbers Dip

Average salary for landscape architects was $71,400, survey says. 

The average salary for landscape architects is $71,100 according to the latest national survey by ASLA. The overall salary dropped from $74,500 in 2008, a reflection of the severe economic conditions facing the profession.

The survey of 1,202 landscape architects was completed in May 2010.

Private sector landscape architects, who make up 70 percent of respondents, reported an average salary of $68,200. Average salary for public sector professionals was $74,000, and the average salary for academics was $100,500 – sectors that make up 26 percent and 4 percent of respondents, respectively.

The average salary for landscape architects from entry-level to up to five years experience was $45,885. Average salaries move into the six figures after 30 years in the profession.

Nearly three in four (73 percent) of landscape architects reported holding a license to practice. Being licensed significantly contributed to salary – $77,700 for those holding a license compared to $52,700 without.

The full salary data, which includes detailed demographics and firm information, is available for purchase at $150 for ASLA members and $300 for nonmembers. Learn more at https://www.asla.org/SalarySurvey.aspx?id=1068
