  • I look forward to the conference each year as an important part of growing my business and improving my skills as a designer. Sharing design and business ideas with fellow APLD members inspires and challenges me to become a better designer and business person. I volunteer my time as a national board member, but always feel I take away from APLD much more than I can give

    Paul Connolly, APLD
  • It’s such a breath of fresh air to leave what you are doing and see how (great) garden designers work in different parts of the country with their own climates and plant materials. I also really relish meeting with scores of like-minded design professionals to exchange ideas, philosophies and business practices.

    Debbie Gliksman, Urban Oasis Garden Design
  • I had a great time experiencing new environments, networking with other like-minded business owners/designers and getting tons of new inspiration to take home with me. Relaxing educational, and refreshing. I look forward to this conference each year.

    Joshua Gillow, MasterPLAN
  • The APLD annual conferences are a terrific opportunity to learn from other members, from international design experts and from gardens in various geographic and cultural areas. The rich experience allows us to detach from our daily design work and to imagine new possibilities for our businesses and lives. Best of all is the opportunity to network with our peers.

    Cathy Carr, APLD
  • I had 2018 on the calendar before it was even announced! The high point of the year for Professional Landscape Designers!

    Bryan D. Goff
  • From start to finish, the APLD Conference was fun, inspiring, and educational. It is an important tool in my design bag that I look forward to using every year. The dates for next year’s conference are already on my calendar. See you in Toronto!
