About LCA

MISSION: To advance the success of members and provide a community for landscape industry professionals.

Since 1967, the Landscape Contractors Association MD • DC • VA (LCA) has been dedicated to promoting excellence in all facets of the landscape industry by providing education on industry best practices, sharing updates, and helping to connect local green businesses. We encourage members to strive to be the best by recognizing their exceptional work through our Excellence in Landscape Awards program. Additionally, our NALP Exterior Landscape Technician Certification partnership (formerly Landscape Industry Certified Technician) program allows members to demonstrate their skill level by testing their technical proficiency.

Our members—landscape contractors, landscape designers, landscape architects, and industry suppliers—are highly sought after by consumers because of their superior level of expertise and their commitment to stay current on horticultural and landscape best practices.
