Why do landscape architects need business insurance?

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.
