APLD’s commitment to advocacy for landscape designers ensures that designers are aware of their right to practice within those laws and extends those activities to protect those rights.

The practice of landscape design is circumscribed by local and state laws and ordinances. Every state, city, and town has a different interpretation of what it means to practice as a landscape designer.

Laws, codes, and ordinances change over time and APLD’s Advocacy leaders communicate to and advocate for landscape designers through membership.
