Landscape Architecture is a pretty cut-throat field to get your start in. I did a lot of reading on it when I was choosing a major as well and decided that it looked a lot like law when you're trying to land your first job. Quite frankly, no matter how you look at it, unless you are paying for your education as you go, you will have to plan on working in a firm or for someone for a few years to pay back student loans.

If you're managing a prominent demonstration site, and there are lots of folks coming through, that'll probably bring in enough design work in-and-of-itself.
