RULE §3.143Recklessness

(a) A Landscape Architect shall not practice landscape architecture in any manner which, when measured by generally accepted landscape architectural standards or procedures, is reasonably likely to result or does result in the endangerment of the safety, health, or welfare of the public.

(b) "Recklessness" shall be grounds for disciplinary action by the Board. "Recklessness" shall include the following practices:

  (1) conduct which indicates that the Landscape Architect is aware of yet consciously disregards a substantial risk of such a nature that its disregard constitutes a significant deviation from the standard of care that a reasonably prudent landscape architect would exercise under the circumstances;

  (2) knowing failure to exercise ordinary care and attention toward the intended result when a procedure, technique, material, or system is employed as a result of a decision made by the Landscape Architect and such failure jeopardizes any person's health, safety, or welfare; or

  (3) action which demonstrates a conscious disregard for compliance with a statute, regulation, code, ordinance, or recognized standard applicable to the design or construction of a particular project when such disregard jeopardizes any person's health, safety, or welfare.
