June 13 is much more than the day after my 13th anniversary -- it is the first day of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers conference in Cleveland. This conference is open to the public and registration materials are available here.
From top notch gardens to informative workshops, APLD is planning a spectacular conference focused on the latest developments in landscape design. APLD will also honor the annual International Landscape Design Awards program winners. Each year, APLD bestows the coveted title of “Landscape Designer of the Year” to the highest valued entry in this competition.
“Cleveland really does rock! In terms of landscape design, it rocks because of the wide variety of gardens we will be visiting," says Bobbie Schwartz, president of APLD. “I will be proud to share Cleveland with attendees and I know they will leave with a new impression of the city.” Kicking off the conference in style, the opening reception will be held at the House of Blues, which is just a short walk from the hotel.
Inspirational workshops focused on sustainability, social media skills and fostering creativity are planned. A complete list of conference workshops, garden tours and exhibitor showcase participants is available at www.apld.org.
