Dear Ms. Vierra,
I am applying for the Landscape Designer position with Chicago Botanic Garden and my skills and experience match the description in your posting.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture degree and my courses centered on plants, soil and techniques used for landscaping. I have over three years of experience designing landscapes with extensive knowledge of designing gardens and parks. I have the training and skills to create landscapes that are both functional and pleasing to look at.
I have extensive knowledge of computer graphics, which I use to create digital designs of what the landscape will look like once finished. This makes it much easier to work with the clients to create a landscape they will be happy with for a very long time. It is much easier for clients to decide if the plan is something they truly like when looking at these designs, than it is to try and visualize what a blueprint or schematic will look like finished.
I have extensive knowledge of plants and the procedures used in landscaping and I know which plants will do the best based on the environment. I have a good eye for designing the placement of the plants throughout the landscape to create balance and to ensure the plants have room to grow.
I possess very strong communication skills and I have the knowledge to provide accurate estimates of what each project will cost to complete. I know that I am the right person for this job and I hope to meet with you soon.
My contact number is (123)-219-1970.
