About the VSLD
The Virginia Society of Landscape Designers
Property owners have a valuable statewide resource in the Virginia Society of Landscape Designers (VSLD). The membership of this professional organization includes over ninety Certified Landscape Designers who have demonstrated competency in design, plant suitability, and graphic communication. Certified Designers must also fulfill annual continuing education requirements. This statewide group of professional designers is an excellent starting point if you are looking for a designer for your property.
The VSLD is your source for the professional designer who will best fit your needs and your project. Among our certified members are many types of firms, from individuals with design practices to larger companies who design and build. Services can range from simple sketches to a complete master plan with construction details for your project.
Fees vary from firm to firm. Look for designers listed in your region. Begin with a phone call or website visit to decide who best fits your needs. Describe what you have in mind and choose a person with whom you feel comfortable. The more information you can share about your vision, budget, and maintenance level, the better your designer will be able to help you create the perfect custom landscape for your home or business.
Professional consultation and planning is often the best money you can spend on your property. A well planned and well maintained landscape is a growing investment that appreciates over time. Get started this season with a VSLD certified designer.
