Explore… Dream… Connect… Belong… Support.

Thank you for visiting the CT Chapter of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. In Landscape Design, as with any design principle or artistic endeavor, there is more than one solution to a problem. Within these pages, I invite you to explore the nuances that each of our designers employs to realize the potential that your property holds. Let this site be a catalyst to realize the dreams that lie sleeping deep within the ground. Please utilize the ‘Find a Designer’ page to connect with the designer that speaks to you.

We also welcome a dialogue with other design professionals within our and neighboring states. I invite you to become a member of APLD, the only national organization whose sole focus is on Landscape Designers. The organization will afford you the opportunity to meet, share ideas, and work with Landscape Design and Green Industry thought leaders from across the country.
