2017 Urban Soil Summit Walnut Sponsor, The Association of Professional Landscape Designers – California Chapter is dedicated to advancing the profession of landscape design and to promoting the recognition of landscape designers as qualified and dedicated professionals. In recent years, APLD CA has emerged as a landscape industry leader in its promotion of the Watershed Approach to landscaping, a set of standards for landscape design, construction, and management that recognize the central role of building healthy living soil, capturing rainwater on site, selecting climate appropriate plants, and irrigating with highly efficient systems only when necessary.
APLD encourages all members to adhere to a code of professional standards, to actively participate in continuing education and to be current with state-of-the-art developments and trends throughout the field. The association also offers its members a certification program based on built projects that provides professional recognition to those designers who can pass a rigorous peer review program. It offers consumers access to trained designers who can help them achieve the landscapes they truly desire.
APLDCA also was a sponsor of the 2015 Urban Soil Summit.
