There has been a big increase of buildings that are LEED certified, as many people have started to become more conscious with using sustainable projects when working on their space. Sue Reed is a landscape architect and also the author of "Energy-Wise Landscape Design." She offers homeowners will information that can help them maintain an eco-friendly environment, according to the Miami Herald.

Home owners can save money just by lessening the mowing of their lawn. If it is possible to add wildflowers or berry bushes to an area and limit the mowing, it could be substantial. Another helpful tip is taking advantage of the trees around a property.

"You can chop the leaves or just leave them whole and leave them for a year or two. It's the best possible mulch for your trees. That's how nature takes care of them," Reed told the news source. Also, she added that owners can use the leaves instead of going back to the store for mulch or wood chips.

Individuals who are interested in architectural design may be able to land a job once they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
