Brothers Outdoor World

Landscape Designer Intern

May - August 2022 • Jackson, MI

What I liked

I really liked getting a hands on experience with site visits to residences and meeting with the clients. That helped me see how we, as designers, design in the real world and interact with the clients to know and understand their needs and what they would like in their design. The site visits gave me the opportunity to learn how to use devices like a drone and a Smart Level Measuring device to measure spot elevations for the topography. I even liked learning a new 3D Modelling Software called Realtime Landscaping Architect to create and envision the designs for the clients.

What I wish was different

There were no aspects I thought could have been better. I really had a great experience and I would highly encourage students to explore opportunities at Brothers Outdoor World.


I would suggest that future/prospective interns should try to engage more when meeting the clients by asking them questions and providing your ideas and suggestions for the design. I feel that I could have done better as far as that is concerned.
