The Massachusetts Association of Landscape Professionals is committed to advancing the state of the Landscaping
Profession within the state. Landscape Contractors can further their knowledge of correct landscape practices by participating in associations such as this.
The Professional Landcare Network strives to enhance the professionalism of our field and keep members up-to-date, with regard to Best Management Practices for the Landscaping Industry. They also greatly facilitate ongoing professional development for the green industry as a whole.
We are pleased to belong to the New England Landscape Design and History Association, a group which
encompasses not only New England Landscape Designers, but also those involved in the preservation and restoration of historic landscapes within the New England region. This association brings
together a variety of landscape professionals, through their common love of New England Landscapes, their history and use, and their design.
It may come as no surprise that a group called The Association of Professional Landscape Designers is comprised
of those who do Landscape Design for a living. What makes this international organization unique, however, is that they have been advocating for the recognition of landscape designers since 1989.
Perhaps it is in part thanks to their efforts that landscape designers now garner some of the recognition that they deserve as outdoor artisans and landscape planners.
The Professional Grounds Management Society is a group of individuals (not companies) who are involved in the
maintenance of some of the finest properties across the country. Members manage diverse areas, such as parks, estates, college campuses and other landscape holdings. Members strive to uphold the
highest standards of care for the landscapes under their supervision and entrusted to their judgement as professional landscapers.
The Coalition for Better Landscaping was founded with the intent of educating the general public (as well as new
members of the landscaping profession) about a variety of detrimental practices that can damage various living aspects of the landscape and lead to long-lasting or irreparable harm.
