Landscape Industry Certified Designer (CLD)
I join an elite join of Architects and Designers from across Canada who have completed this program, supported by the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and PLANET.
Why a Landscape Industry Certified Designer (CLD)?
There are many reasons to seek the services of a qualified Landscape Designer, indicated by the CLD designation. Good landscape design requires far more than creativity. Creativity without horticultural expertise and an extensive knowledge of site engineering will only lead to disappointment in the finished product. CLDs have the mandatory education and professional expertise, and have passed an intensive review process. Only upon proving such proficiency can a candidate be considered for the Certified Landscape Designer professional designation. 'Great Moments' 2015
