This category of membership is available to any student of Landscape Design/ Horticulture at an accredited college or university. The student can be part-time. A student member may keep this status for two years after graduation to allow time to gain the experience and work references necessary for the certification process. This is a nonvoting membership. A professional endorsement from a professor/instructor under whom you are studying is required.

Associate Member


Membership is available to those interested parties who wish to support the VSLD and who are engaged in related professions, but who are not actively involved in landscape design, i.e. landscape lighting, irrigation, installation, landscape supplies, and nursery affiliations.
