Overview

The most impressive landscapes in Oregon are entirely natural, require little or no human intervention, and have existed for millennia. Human-made landscapes can be impressive, too, as humans try to put their own imprint on the environment.

Anyone in Oregon who advertises, operates as, or uses the title of a landscape contractor or landscape business must be licensed with the Landscape Contractors Board. Before they can be licensed, contractors must take a comprehensive exam administered by the LCB. The exam includes questions about Oregon OSHA’s workplace safety and health rules.

Many landscaping and horticulture workers are Hispanic. OSHA requires that employers conduct all required training of workers in a language and vocabulary workers can understand.
