Is 'Landscape Architecture' just a fancy term for a glorified gardener with a useless college degree?

    from the context you make,, yes.... most college degrees are on their own worthless... 

    like many landscaper has to learn on the job to be any good, degrees are just a place to start and often a waste of 4 years of your life and money 

    -------------

    I will ad to your point often people pay money to people with degrees who have ideas  like planting that are no better than your own .. seen this a lot on landscapers ... sell the crap they have on hand 

    the real value of many degrees is giving teachers jobs teaching,, when they could not do a real job

    Not any more than an "Architect" is a glorified handyman. 

    LA is not really about "gardening". It's about designing outdoor spaces.

    Nope. It's more than that and there's nothing useless about a college degree in comparison to a simple diploma.

    Not at all. Landscape Architecture doesn't limit to gardens. Public Parks and Playgrounds can be created with landscape architecture.

    No, Parks and Country houses use these people to develop gardens from scratch. There is more to it then just planting plants and trees.

    Do you think all those bushes along road and railway embankments choose themselves? Or parks lay themselves out on their own?  That is why you need designers who know about hard and soft landscaping and how it helps improve town and cities. Most people have no need of them, and I guess you are one of them.
