    Created in 1972, the State Landscape Contractors Board (LCB) licenses landscape contracting businesses and landscape construction professionals.  Landscape construction professionals must meet experience and/or education requirements and pass a competency exam.  Landscape contracting businesses must obtain a surety bond, submit evidence of liability insurance and employ or be owned by a licensed landscape construction professional.

COMMUNITY PRESENTATION PROGRAM FOR LCB LICENSEES - EARN CEH

This is a new effort to allow LCB individual licensees to earn CEH credit for providing presentations to community groups, classes, churches, neighborhood associations, fraternal organizations, garden centers, home shows, senior centers and other groups in your local area.  Licensees who follow the process will have the chance to earn 1 hour of CEH for every hour (or 50 minutes) of presentation time as well as 2 hours of preparation time for the first presentation given.
 
CONSIDERING RETIRING?  SELLIING YOUR BUSINESS?
Recently more licensees are retiring from the industry that are actively operating a landscaping business. There have also been more landscape contracting businesses being sold.  We want to help you understand your options regarding your license status.

2015 LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
  
**IMPORTANT**
LCB VEHICLE STICKER ANNOUNCEMENT
 
This Announcement is to inform you that effective January 1, 2016, the vehicle stickers previously issued by the LCB will no longer be accepted as the 4 digit number required in any and all advertising on vehicles and trailers.
 
The LCB rules require all written advertising to include the 4 digit landscape contracting business license number.  In the past, the LCB provided stickers for vehicles which included that 4 digit number.  The LCB has not provided these stickers for several years. 
 
If you advertise your business on your vehicle, you must include your 4 digit number within the advertisement itself.  If you relied on your vehicle sticker to meet this requirement and you do not have this number with the signage, you will need to update your signage to include that 4 digit number.
 
Please note, you are not required to advertise on your vehicle or even have your 4 digit LCB number on your vehicle.  This is a requirement only if you advertise your business on a vehicle or trailer (and all other written advertising).
