The Association of Professional Landscape Designers will host the 16th Annual International Design Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, from June 13-17 and showcase some of the finest area gardens throughout the week.
From top-notch gardens to informative workshops, the APLD is planning a conference focused on the latest developments in landscape design. The APLD will also honor the annual International Landscape Design Awards program winner. Each year, the APLD bestows the title of “Landscape Designer of the Year” to the highest valued entry in this competition.
Workshops focused on sustainability, social media skills and fostering creativity are planned for the event. To view a complete list of conference workshops, garden tours and exhibitor showcase participants, visit apld.org.
The conference will be at the downtown Marriott, and attendees will tour 14 gardens in the surrounding area. Ten additional gardens can be visited during the post conference sessions.

Its goal is to advance landscape design as an independent profession and to promote the recognition of landscape designers as highly qualified, dedicated professionals.
