The mission of APLD is to advance the profession of landscape design and to promote our members as qualified and dedicated professionals.

Members receive a myriad of benefits and opportunities that support that core mission. Through volunteer efforts by those who are committed to its growth, APLD includes members throughout the United States who support multiple state chapters as well as individual international members. The association’s day-to-day management is headquartered in Harrisburg, PA.

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.

Our Volunteers

Our chapter is led by member volunteers. We welcome new volunteers and encourage participation in our events as a great way to make contacts, learn valuable information and gain inspiration from colleagues and other experts. To get involved, please contact our chapter president.
