I would suggest computer graphics. Although there are higher levels of mathematics involved, computer work requires a very deep understanding of how shapes create "special effects" on the computer screen which eventually translate into movies! I think landscapers use geometry in several ways. Aside from the asthetic view, there are actual use of computing of areas, plant food, water distribution. Whoever creates the patterns for tiles would have to know about geometry! Carpenters use lots of geometry! Land surveyors use geometry and go on to apply trigonometry quite extensively! -Claudia, for the Teacher2Teacher service
