Q: I want to get a certification in landscape design. What is the best way to go about this?
A: The Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) offers certification. They require two years in the field doing landscape design work and a minimum of twelve credit hours in courses about landscape design. You can get credit hours at local institutions, listed at Where To Get Training in Horticulture. http://www.walterreeves.com/how-to-archive/gardening-in-georgia-your-southern-garden-tv-shows/ The local APLD chapter Association of Professional Landscape Designers meets regularly.
