E-Landscape is committed to executing landscape designs and maintaining our clients’ properties to the highest standards. In order to fulfill this commitment, we maintain an active membership in a number of industry associations including ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc.), LCA (Landscape Contractors Association), and PGMS (Professional Grounds Management Society).

Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., founded in 1950 in Baltimore, Maryland, is a national association with 75 chapters representing 23,000 merit shop construction and construction-related firms with nearly two million employees. ABC values the highest levels of personal and corporate standards of behavior characterized by responsibility, accountability and integrity, with demonstrated personal and industry professionalism by all participants.

The Landscape Contractors Association (LCA) was founded in 1967 and exists to provide local resources to landscape professionals to help them maximize their business potential. Through its membership, LCA offers a community of landscape contractors, landscape architects and designers, grounds departments, educational institutions, and suppliers banded together in a supportive environment. Each member benefits from increased opportunities for mentoring, knowledge exchange, and enhanced visibility amongst potential customers.

The Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS) was established in 1911 with the goal of placing its members on the cutting edge of leadership in the Green Industry. PGMS accomplishes its mission by developing techniques and management skills to assure an outstanding grounds management program for their respective organization, agency, department, firm or employer and to upgrade the level of the profession.

Our involvement in these organizations provides E-Landscape with access to the latest information and training on business developments, safety issues, green building practices, certification/training/testing, and researching and surveying.
