how do I get a job in a field I don't have any work experience in?

I've done mostly customer service & do NOT want to do it anymore. While I understand the majority of jobs do have some level of customer service, I am looking for something that isn't predominantly CS. I really want to do Landscape & Garden Design, however I don't have a degree. I've posted my resume on 6 different job search sites & keep getting hits for CS, even though I put a cover letter up saying that's not what I'm looking for. I've been out of work for almost 3 months now & am getting very frustrated. Any ideas? Oh! I can't do Landscape Laborer due to previous physical injuries, so that makes it more difficult.

Everyone was a fresher one day in a job where they are master now! So it doesn't take too much to find a job with no experience, it takes alot to mantain good will and work hard at your Job... Good Luck!
