As a landscape architect, your task is to create outdoor spaces that are appealing, safe, and functional. That means high liability. If a child is injured on a playground you designed, or your design leads to flooding and water damage, your business could face a lawsuit. Business insurance protects against legal fees and fulfills requirements for leases, loans, and state laws.
These insurance policies cover common risks faced by landscape architects.
A general liability policy covers basic third-party risks, such as a client who suffers an injury in a landscape architect’s office. It’s often required for a commercial lease.
A business owner's policy, or BOP, is a cost-effective way for landscape architects to buy general liability coverage and commercial property insurance together.
This insurance covers legal costs related to the quality of your professional service, such as a lawsuit over uneven steps that caused an injury. It’s also called errors and omissions insurance or E&O insurance.
Most states require workers’ comp for landscape architecture firms that have employees. It also protects sole proprietors from work injury costs that health insurance might deny.
This policy helps landscape architects recover from data breaches and cyberattacks. It's strongly recommended for any small business that handles sensitive information.
