The State Board of Landscape Architects regulates and licenses landscape architects. The Board does not regulate or require registration of landscape architect firms or landscape designers, installers, or contractors. The Board's mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the people of Colorado by preventing the improper design of public domain landscape infrastructure by unauthorized, unqualified, and incompetent persons.
Board activities include examining and licensing landscape architects, investigating complaints about landscape architects, and disciplining violators of the law and/or the Board's rules.
The Board is made up of five members: three from the profession and two public members. The Board works closely with national organizations such as the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB).
