Every property owner, property manager, and homeowner is faced with the same decision when it comes to landscape management. A landscaper must be chosen, and that can often be a difficult decision. If you are unfamiliar with the area, or have no history with landscapers, starting from scratch can be difficult. With that, an important way the quality of a landscaping company can be determined is through their membership in professional landscaping organizations. These professional organizations are composed of the industry’s leading experts, who come together to share resources, information, and best practices. It also allows for networking among landscape professionals, among other perks. However, membership in these organizations is not offered to just anyone, so you know a landscaping company who boasts their membership is rightly credible. Here are the many benefits of such professional memberships.

Landscapers Save Money and Increase Profits

One of the benefits of landscape organization memberships is access to resources that allow for lowered costs, and thus increased profits. For example, the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), provides its members with access to specialty suppliers who offer discounts to member companies. Additionally, they provide access to a workers compensation program, as well as liability assurance. This takes the load off the individual company, instead shouldered by a conglomerate of the landscape industry’s best. Additionally, general networking can allow for easy subcontracting, as well as sharing of tips and tricks.

The Benefits of Landscape Professional MembershipsEducational and Growth Resources

Another benefit to membership in professional landscape organizations is in the increase in quality of work and employee capability with access to educational resources. This is another reason why those companies involved in these organizations are credible. Professional certifications, leadership academies, and online webinars are just a few of the ways that industry knowledge is compiled and distributed among members. Industry publications, and business toolkits are also routinely published by the NALP, in an effort to ensure that everyone is up to date on the latest and greatest in the landscaping industry. For everyone to get to know each other, many of these organizations put on in person conferences and shows full of keynote speakers and expert presentations. This compilation of resources from various organizations is what helps Pezza be great day in and day out.

Landscape Community Development

The landscaping industry as a whole has to keep up with the times. Every industry has professional organizations, connecting the best and the brightest in hopes of advancement and innovation. Allowing for companies, leaders, and experts to get to know each other, these organizations allow for the landscape community to develop. As more information is shared and readily available, everyone both contributes and benefits. Creating mutual value for all parties involved, only the best companies maintain membership.
