Why hire a landscape architect to create a design your property? Because it's the law (kind of)! Only a registered landscape architect can charge for design services, see below.

I hope I can get answers here since this topic is now more than a year old... I and many
others are currently students working on obtaining a Landscape Design Certification at Gwinnett Technical College. However, after hearing of Ga House Bill 417 we have concern as to if we can legally practice landscape design in the state of Ga if we're not giving the design away for free as part of installation. We do know of many designers who do design work that are not LAs, but there is still this concern. Is it correct that legally we can not actually sell our designs? Thanks for you help.
