    Horticulture is the study of plants and how the grow and what kind of soil and etc they need.
    A landscape architect looks at a building and then draws up a plan as to where to put the plants.

    Horticulture is the study of plants; landscape architects focus on design. No reputable landscape architect could do his/her job without a degree in horticulture.

    Horticulture would be mostly a science degree versus Landscape Architecture would be more a design major maybe with science to a degree (my guess would be you would have to have horticulture education in order to select what plants would grow best in the space/area that is being designed).

    architecture involves construction design... not just landscape layouts. Horticulture also involves botany and the ecology of a designed environment.

    Horticulture is just the study of Plants and plant life. Landscaping is more the design of areas that uses plants to enhance it.
