    Same here, I'm not a certified Landscape Architect, but if the project isn't too involved then it should be a piece of cake to design any way you wish.

    PM me.

    I don't know what your intention is, but it is going to be pretty hard to get one to give you anything without explanation.

    PS. How many landscape architects do you think are on this site? I'm only aware of one, but I'm sure there may be others.

    SG, in New Jersey, to say you are a landscape architect, you must be licensed. To be licensed, you must have completed an accredited LA program, served as an apprentice and taken a test that equates to a 2 day BAR exam. They are very protective of their titles and get paid very well for them. They don't share a lot of information without compensation. The rest of us that don't have all those credentials are labeled landscape designers, and that field varies from your local lawn guy to an educated individual with all but the license.

    That license allows a landscape architect to sign off on a set of plans that are required for permits and approvals. Their education is heavily weighted towards civil engineering.

    I am trying to fulfill a merit badge requirement as follows:

    Go to a completed landscape project that a landscape architect has designed. Before you visit the site, obtain a plan of the design from the landscape architect if one is available.

    The Pictures will fulfill the visit a completed project.

    If anyone has plans feel free to put your company Name across them (like a watermark on a picture)
    also if anyone has anything that would work just respond.

    I don't "need" them until late June/ early July

    but would prefer to have them a little sooner so that i can organize everything.
