LI Registered Practices are at the heart of the landscape profession. They are vital in raising the profile of the profession, communicating its importance, and advancing the art and science of landscape practice. By registering your practice, you will assure your clients that they are working with committed professionals who meet a quality benchmark, backed by a trusted professional body.
The LI has over 500 practices across the UK and overseas, all listed in our searchable Registered Practice directory. We highlight the work of our Registered Practices at the annual LI Awards and in our Case Study Directory.

1. There are three sub-categories of registration which the organisation registering must fall within.
2. Requirement for Professional Indemnity Insurance.
All Practices and Departments registered with the Landscape Institute are required to carry professional indemnity insurance and to produce evidence that PII cover is held. It is for each Practice or Department to determine its own risk and the level of cover necessary. Practices are however advised that with increasing litigation against professionals generally they should be prudent in their assessment of risk and the level of cover necessary. In addition, clients often insist on a certain level of PII cover. In the case of a public authority acting as a consultancy to other authorities, a letter from the Chief Executive stating that they are indemnified shall be produced as evidence.
