List of landscape architects

A landscape architect is educated, to a high standard whether academic or practical, in landscape architecture and whose professional work conforms to the practice of the same name. The term landscape architect is used differently because professional licenses can be sought through registration examinations. This varies by country and state, for example some US states offer "practice acts" and some offer "title acts". Each refers to the limitations placed on persons who are and are not licensed.

This page also includes figures who are better known as landscape gardeners, landscape designers, architects, surveyors or engineers, particularly those from the 18th century who practised before the term 'landscape architect' was coined. Landscape architecture was also differentiated as a profession in the United States earlier than in other parts of the world so this ambiguity has persisted to the present day; in much of Europe, for example, landscape architecture is not a distinct profession but there are many significant historical and contemporary examples of 'landscape architectural' projects.
