Celebrating 25 Years of Service to Nevada’s Horticulture Industry, The Nevada Landscape Association (NLA) was founded in 1990 by a group of Northern Nevada Green Industry professionals who shared some concern over the growing landscape industry and who had the foresight to unite as a single voice for local businesses. The NLA’s Northern Nevada Chapter started shortly thereafter and focused on legislative issues which would negatively impact the industry.
As local Green Industry businesses flourished, so has the NLA. Over the years, with education, communication and community involvement, the NLA has helped to increase professionalism and raise standards in Nevada. And, with the implementation of the Landscape Industry Certified (formerly Certified Landscape Technician) program, the NLA now provides landscapers with an opportunity to be nationally certified.
Who Are We?
Our membership consists of installation and maintenance contractors, lawn care operators, landscape architects, nurseries, growers, retailers, public agencies, suppliers, services, and individuals in Nevada and throughout the United States. Members also include students, teachers, and university extension personnel in the horticulture field.
