Looking for a landscape designer?

The decision to hire a professional landscape designer can be one of the smartest investments you'll make toward enhancing your home and its setting. A landscape designer can work with you to turn that neglected corner into a garden sanctuary, or help you completely plan and furnish your outdoor living spaces with the creative use of plants, hardscaping, and other garden elements, resulting in a unified, balanced environment that you'll enjoy for years to come.

APLD® California Chapter members continually hone their landscape design skills. Many of our members are Certified, which means they have submitted their work to a rigorous, juried peer-review process. Find a qualified landscape designer for your project.
