Who We Are

The LMA Works For You…

Contractors, designers, manufacturers, suppliers, technical experts and many more are cooperating to insure that the landscape profession will continue to pace forward in the attainment of our goal.

The Landscape Management Association is your voice in your future. No one else speaks solely for the landscape industry. No one else fights the battles for landscape specialists. Achieving recognition as a viable, professional industry will insure control over the direction of the future and the livelihood of your chosen field. You cannot afford to be led by other trades. Your membership, your talent, your participation, is needed. We invite you to join us.

 

Landscape Management Association History

The Landscape Management Association (LMA) has been making a place for the dedicated maintenance professional since January 1988. Among all the groups that make up Florida’s “Green Industry”, the Landscape Maintenance segment is largest in numbers and first in revenue production. At the same time, however, the landscape maintenance industry is in need of improved education and greater professionalism. The LMA was formed to serve the educational, commercial, and political needs of maintenance professionals across the state.

From its’ beginning, the Association has made great strides in its’ Endeavour to raise industry professionalism and promote education throughout the state. The Association has established a certification program which ranges from “Best Management Practices” in horticulture to the elements needed to run a successful business. LMA coordinates numerous seminars around the state to promote the concepts of Environmental Landscape Management and Integrated Pest Management as created and supported by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS).

Through lobbying efforts, LMA has been instrumental in establishing new laws governing the safe and effective application of pesticides and herbicides. In conjunction with IFAS, the LMA has designed an six-hour CEU course that prepares maintenance professionals to meet the criteria for the requisite licensing.

Members organized and implemented the “Labor of Love”, a hurricane relief effort that helped over sixty residences in Homestead clean up the devastating effects of Hurricane Andrew.
