Why Landscape and Lawn Care Services Need Special Insurance

Both landscape architects and lawn care servicers need to cover their risk of liability.

Landscape Architect Professional Liability Insurance

Landscape architects are university accredited to plan effectively for an aesthetically pleasing garden. Licensed in the majority of US states to select plants and floral arrangements, these professionals also employ their knowledge in associated engineering for drainage, and garden structure. Depending on their services – a design-only company or a division of a design and build landscape contracting business - these professionals typically present construction documents and may also offer construction management servicing.  The risks in design that insurance covers include areas such as:

  • Playgrounds
  • Toddler play lots
  • Residential areas
  • Common areas in commercial zones
  • Parks
  • Upmarket residential properties and estates

Lawn Care Services Liability Insurance


Lawn Care Businesses Typically provide any of the following services:

  • Lawn mowing
  • Weed, insect and disease management
  • Seeding and sodding
  • Landscaping
  • Plant maintenance
  • Installation of sprinkler systems

One of the main liability worries involves pesticide, herbicide, and fertilizer application but the insurance companies cite overall services, and worker training and experience as important concerns as well.
