Landscape Architect vs. Landscape Designer/Landscaper???
This is probably one of the most asked and misunderstood questions.  Many people think they are the same, however there are significant differences between the two.

Landscape Architect - Anyone practicing in the state of Indiana who carries the title Landscape Architect must first have a degree from an accredited university and pass the Indiana professional licensure exam which measures the educational standards as set forth by the American Socety of Landscape Architects and the State of Indiana.  In addition, Landscape Architects in Indiana are required to obtain Continuing Education Units (CEU's) each year to maintain their licensure.
