Landscape Architecture Standard Plans and Specifications

Landscape Architecture Standards include details and specifications for planting, irrigation and erosion control work. Digital versions of Caltrans Standard Plans and Specifications are available at the Caltrans Office of Construction Contract Standards page.

Landscape Architecture work is constructed using any of the following types of specifications - Standard Specifications, Standard Special Provisions (SSPs) or Non-Standard Special Provisions (NSSPs). Use the guidance below for specific subject areas.

The SSPs are edited for each project. The SSP Index is a very helpful tool in identifying which SSP might be selected for a new project.
