Landscaping is more than just moving earth and planting a tree. It’s knowing where to position the tree in relation to the sun and the rest of the garden, how deep to dig the hole, what plants will complement the tree, and how the garden will change as everything grows. 

A Landscaping Traineeship can take you beyond the local garden centre and into the homes of the public where you are tasked with realising someone’s garden oasis dreams. Your on-the-job training will incorporate landscape construction along with providing hands on opportunities in caring for plants. 

Depending on your qualification a landscaping qualification typically takes 18 months to complete. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers. In addition to on-the-job training, we will assist you with enrolment through a Registered Training Organisation to complete your certification. With MIGAS you will be fully supported throughout the duration of your placement by a Field Officer and by the wider MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees community.
