  1. A landscape architect has finished a five year college degree and passed extensive tests for a license.
    A landscape designer could be your next door neighbor…or you, for that matter.

  2. Landscape architects must qualify for the title. They normally have either a bachelor’s or master’s degree in landscape architecture along with several years of experience in a design firm, and they have passed a nationally standardized five-part licensure test. In most states, a state board does the licensing and makes applicants take yet another test to qualify to practice in their state. In many states, a landscape architect’s license is required to design commercial spaces.———–Landscape designers are not licensed or regulated and are usually limited to preparing plans, drawings, and specifications for the selection, placement, or use of plants. . They’re not required to obtain educational and/or training background.

  3. the landscape architect can come in and say move that hill’….or ‘change the slope there’ or ‘dig out for terraces there’ and do it so that the changes do not negatively impact the neighbor ….or the environment around the property…..

    a designer would only be able to locate brand new beds and fill them ….on paper….
