Landscape Contractors Board Information


The Oregon Landscape Contractors Board recently revised the rules regarding the licensing of new landscape contracting businesses. These changes also affect any individual wishing to obtain their Landscape Construction Professional license.

Of the seven areas of study, the Laws and Rules (Owner/Managing Employee) course is now a mandated prerequisite to taking the Landscape Construction Professional License exam.
