Thank you,

English translation:Landscape architect
Explanation:
Landscape architect is the best choice in the context you indicate. Landscape architecture studies "the relationships between people and the physical environment through planning, designing, and managing landscapes that integrate natural processes, individual needs, and societal vision." (Taken from the homepage of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Virginia Tech.) I hope this helps.

Explanation:
Yes, landscape designer is a good translation, unless the article concerns a orofessional architect, in which case "landscape architect" would be preferred.

paisajista


Explanation:
The context is the key in this case. Paisajista as a noun is usually a landscape painter. However, as an adjective, it can be combined with a noun to define other fields of work: arquitecto paisajista - landscape architect, jardinero paisajista - landscape gardener, arquitectura paisajista - landscape architecture, etc.
