The Arguments Against De-Regulation of Landscape Architects
Landscape architecture is a profession that blends creativity and science. Every day, landscape architects work to improve our communities and the environment, using their talents in planning, design and land‐use management. Projects that landscape architects design and contribute to include parks, urban design, residential developments, campuses, shopping centers, gardens, transportation facilities, corporate and institutional facilities and more. The profession became licensed in 2008 with Public Act 490.
The following are reasons to keep the landscape architect license in place here in Michigan:
- If licensure is revoked, Michigan will be the only state that does not regulate landscape architecture.
- Without a license to practice, every Michigan-based landscape architect will immediately be placed at a competitive disadvantage with a lack of reciprocity and inability to bring projects and work out of state back here to Michigan.
- Landscape architects compete and collaborate with other design professions, such as architects and civil engineers. Without licensure, we simply cannot compete and our businesses cannot function. Licensure levels the playing field for Michigan landscape architects by eliminating this competitive disadvantage on a regional and national basis, even within our own profession.
