Why you should look for a CNLP

If you want to work with a professional, look for someone who is a Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional or CNLP.

That title means the person has completed a rigorous state exam and has kept up their credentials with continuous education in horticulture.

When you consult with a CNLP at a garden center, it means you’re getting advice from a true professional– not someone who worked in the cosmetics department last week and was just transferred to the garden department this week.

And a landscaper who is a CNLP is part of an elite group of green industry professionals who share a common desire to grow as professionals.
