Landscape Contractors Board > Web site
Created in 1972, the State Landscape Contractors Board protects the public’s interest relating to landscape construction. The board licenses landscape contracting businesses and landscape construction professionals. Landscape construction professionals must meet experience and/or education requirements and pass a competency exam. Landscape contracting businesses must obtain a surety bond, submit evidence of liability insurance and employ or be owned by a licensed landscape construction professional. The agency is served by four full time employees and a seven-member board appointed by the governor.
Licensed landscape contracting businesses perform a variety of services: planning, preparing property for or installing lawns, shrubs, trees and nursery stock; constructing, repairing or maintaining ornamental water features, drainage systems and irrigation systems; and planning or installing fences, decks, arbors, patios, landscape edging, driveways, walkways and retaining walls.
Consumers can search for licensed landscape contracting businesses on the agency’s website and get business information through the agency. The agency offers a claims process for property owners to access the bond for negligent or improper work or for breach of contract.
