A letter from the President

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.

Featured Member

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.

It’s also a time to reflect on the busyness of spring and the preparations and planning that went into early season projects.
