Illinois Proposes New Regulation on LAs

Currently, 30 states require landscape architects to be licensed in order to practice the profession. Illinois is looking to make it 31.


The state of Illinois is considering passing Bill 1899 which would mandate that anyone working within the field of landscape architecture would have to first obtain licensure before being allowed to practice.

According to sources, the bill outlines two main ways someone can become a licensed landscape architect. The first option is that the person can attend and graduate from an accredited landscape architecture school (of which there are two currently in Illinois according to the American Society of Landscape Architects) and then gather two years of experience under an already licensed landscape architect.

The second option is for the person to get a bachelor's degree in surveying, urban planning, architecture or engineering and then work for six years under a licensed landscape architect.

Bill 1899 outlines several components that constitute as landscape architecture, including, but not limited to: "developing landscape architecture design concepts; establishing form and aesthetic elements of a site; determining vegetative systems for soil conservation; and planting and ground cover.

Reportedly, the bill is being supported by the ASLA, of whom "hundreds of people representing the American Society of Landscape Architects filed witness slips in favor of the bill."
