Landscape Architects

Welcome to the Landscape Architects Website

Please Note: Certificate of authorization is now required for all general business corporations and limited liability companies providing or offering to provide landscape architecture services in accordance with N.J.A.C. 13:27-8.11. Click HERE for application.

The Board of Architects is responsible for safeguarding life, health and property, and promoting the public welfare. A person using the title “Landscape architect” and engaging in the practice of landscape architecture in this State is required to submit evidence that the person is qualified to be licensed to practice landscape architecture. It is unlawful for a person not licensed as a landscape architect to use the title “landscape architect” or any other title, sign, card or device in a manner which tends to convey the impression that the person is a licensed landscape architect. Every holder of a license shall display it in a conspicuous place in his principal office, place of business or employment.

The practice of landscape architecture is any service in which the principles and methodology of landscape architecture are applied in consultation, evaluation, planning and design including the preparation and filing of sketches, drawings, plans and specifications for review and approval by governmental agencies, and responsible administration of contracts to the extent that the primary purpose of the contractual services is the preservation, enhancement or determination of proper land uses, natural land features, ground cover and planting, naturalistic and aesthetic values, the settings and approaches, or environment for structures or other improvements, the grading of land and water forms, natural drainage and determination of related impacts and sedimentation, blight or other hazards. This practice includes the proposed location and arrangement of those tangible objects and features as are incidental and necessary for any government approval and as may be prescribed by State or local authorities, but does not include the design of structures or facilities ordinarily included in the practice of engineering or architecture and does not include the making of land surveys or land plats for official approval or recording or other services as set forth in subsection (e) of section 2 of P.L. 1938, c.342 (C.45:8-28).

Inquiries about the Board may be forwarded to Charles Kirk, Acting Executive Director, PO Box 45001, Newark, NJ 07101, (973) 504-6385 or via e-mail.
