A letter from the President
…for summer is a time of exuberance. Perennial gardens burst with color and hum with activity as birds and insects busily go about their business. Grasses explode with energy as they send seed heads skyward and dance in the soft, warm, breezes. It’s also a time to reflect…
The Association of Professional Landscape Designers
APLD’s mission is to advance the profession of landscape design, promote our members as qualified and dedicated professionals, uphold our code of ethics and advance professional practices, be the source of thought leadership in responsible and innovative design, and foster creativity to inspire passion for excellence.
It Takes a Professional
A well-designed landscape is shaped from a complex assortment of elements. The professional landscape designer works continually to know and understand these elements, through education, seminars, and networking, to better use them in the landscape.
A designer’s familiarity with these elements, provides the ability to pull them together to produce a design that is both functional and beautiful, and meets the needs and goals of the client.
Our featured designer is not one, but two designers, Carrie Maher and Mark Greenwald, of Maher & Greenwald Fine Gardens, Inc.
Both longtime members of APLDCT, Mark and Carrie are designers of private residences, public gardens and commercial properties throughout the New York metropolitan area, Westchester Counties and the Hudson Valley in New York, and Fairfield County in Connecticut.
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that every week we, as business owners, face ideas and obstacles, that affect the direction of our careers or businesses. These choices can speed up success or hinder growth. I thought it would be fun to do a little self-reflection on some of the things that have most likely held me back in my design career.
