From 1981 until 1984 he was head of the strategic policy development and research coordination unit of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature Management and Fisheries. From 1984 until 1990 he was head of the Landscape Architecture Department of the Dutch Forestry Commission. From 1990 until 1993 he was coordinator of the Landscape Architecture study programme of the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam. In 1990 he was one of the three founders of H+N+S Landscape Architects. At H+N+S he is mainly responsible for regional plans.

H+N+S Landscape Architects received the National Prince Bernard Culture award in 2001. In 2002 Dirk Sijmons received the Rotterdam Maaskant award. On this occasion his book Landkaartmos was published. Other books by Sijmons are ‘ Oorden van Onthouding’ (1998, about nature and design), ‘Landschap’ (1998, which was published in English as ‘Landscape’ in 2002). In 2006 his book ‘Een plan dat werkt’ (A plan that works, about the relationship between policy making and design) was published. His book ‘Greetings form Europe’ (2008) addresses the interaction between tourism and European landscapes. From 1994 until 2011 he chaired the board of OASE, which publishes the homonymous Dutch-Flemish journal in the field of architectural theory. After intensive design research his book ‘ Landschap en energie (kWh/m2)’ (Landscape and energy) was published which discusses the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
