Do you have all the tools to build a successful career in landscape design? LDA might be the best tool in your toolbox.

  • We host about 6 educational programs per year on: Design, Horticulture, Sustainability and Business Strategy.
  • Members are from different types of businesses in the landscape world. Our base membership is landscape designers and architects, many of whom are also contractors. We also have many other members who work with the designers and architects: irrigation, carpentry, lighting, nurseries... Collaboration among our members is common. We develop relationships with other members and suppliers during planned networking at our programs. Having face-to-face time with suppliers and other members produces better relationships and more reliable work.
  • Our noted publication, Covering Ground, keeps us updated with valuable articles and timely information.
  • We tour suppliers, gardens and nurseries.
  • Our summer and winter parties foster fellowship and further networking.
  • Member businesses are listed on our website and benefit from referrals via the website Find a Pro button. Members can upload photos and other information about their businesses onto our website.
  • LDA also enhances members' visability by publishing articles written by or about our members in our newsletter and soon on our website.
  • Experienced professionals who volunteer their time run our organization.
  • Please contact any board member if you have questions about the association.
