    Starting salaries for landscape architects

    What is the salary range for a new MLA grad? I live in Canada but if you know only US salaries, post that too. Canadian salaries are generally a bit lower than US salaries. Thanks.

    It's all location-dependent. The (expensive) major metro areas pay far more than the sticks. It's also a bit of a down market right now, which depresses things a bit.

    Having said that, the market is still pretty good. The outlooks for growth in the field project shortages of LAs for the foreseeable future.

    I would expect starting salaries to be in the low to upper 30's in most places in the US. I recall hearing that one of the top/most talented BLA grads from my school (UGA) hired on at $45K a year ago (at the top of the market) in Atlanta.
