The Association of Professional Landscape Designers® (APLD) was founded in 1989 as an international organization dedicated to promoting the highest standards for the landscape design profession. The Michigan chapter, seperated from the Midwest Chapter and organized in 2009, represents APLD members living or working in Michigan.
Our primary goals are:
- To promote the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in the field of landscape design
- To provide opportunities for our members to advance their professional skills and knowledge
- To enable our members to network with other landscape designers and green industry professionals
- To keep our members abreast of the latest information and developments in the field of landscape design
- To help educate consumers about the role and value of professional landscape design, in part by providing online resources for finding and working with local professional landscape designers.

Serving on the Board of Directors
Chapter involvement is one of the most tangible benefit of belonging to APLD-MI. The Board meets on a bi-monthly basis except for April/May. We generally meet in the Lansing area centrally located in the state. We are open to offering the meeting via the web if you cannot make it. If you have several hours every other month to volunteer – and let’s face it, who doesn’t – you can make a difference and help raise awareness of the value of professional landscape design in Michigan. If you have any interest/talent in these areas to serve on the 2016 board please let us know.
