PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

(OP)
Talking specifically about planting plans for land development projects, tree protection plans, etc. From my perspective as a PE, I can't see a reason why a PE stamping them would be a problem. My perspective doesn't always jive with code, though.

RE: PE stamping landscape architecture plans?


beej67....this is the applicable paragraph from your state law with respect of practices between landscape architects and engineers. It is the same as for architects and engineers.

43-23-16 Applicability of chapter to qualified registered architects and professional engineers.
Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as excluding a qualified registered architect or
professional engineer from such landscape architectural practice as may be incidental to the
practice of his profession or as excluding a landscape architect registered under this chapter from
such architectural or engineering practice as may be incidental to the practice of landscape
architecture.


RE: PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

Some states have it - others don't

RE: PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

Mike...true, but his state does have it.

RE: PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

Then he shall abide by such provisions!!

My only point is that EVERYONE needs to check their individual states and see!

Thanks Ron and Mike.

The question came up because I thought I could do it, but I'm working with an LA who's from Texas who thought that I couldn't. Turns out we are both right, for the reasons you both mention above.

RE: PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

I was just looking at a new project coming up and a Landscape Architect did the fine grading plan. The only problem is that it doesn't follow some very basic drainage design criteria. The Architect of the project immediately told me the city wouldn't allow this type of grading plan. This is in Beverly Hills. But other cities around Los Angeles do allow non PE's to do grading plans.

In Orange County Florida you can stamp landscaping drawings as it is in their code.

RE: PE stamping landscape architecture plans?

In NC, and my understanding, a PE can seal basically anything. I work a lot with the Charlotte building code and zoning officials and they require a PE or an Architect on projects. Either one for most building projects. It is standard practice for PEs to seal planting designs for stream restoration projects in our area. You would not have a problem sealing planting plans for land development projects, tree protection plans, etc in NC.
