Michigan State Board of Landscape Architects

Article 22 of Public Act 299 of 1980, as amended was created to regulate the practice of landscape architecture in Michigan. The practice of landscape architecture is defined as “the performance of professional services such as consultation, investigation, research, planning, design, or responsible field observation in connection with the development of land areas where, and to the extent that the dominant purpose of the services is the preservation, enhancement, or determination of proper land uses, natural land resources, ground cover and planting, naturalistic and aesthetic values, the settings and approaches to structures or other improvements, natural drainage, and the consideration and determination of inherent problems of the land relating to erosion, use and stress, blight, or other hazards.”

In an effort to reduce the use of paper, effective January 1, 2022, licenses issued or renewed will only be sent electronically unless a paper copy of the license is requested during the application or renewal process.
