to promote high standards in product quality, professional service and conduct in the landscape and horticulture industry.
Landscape Nova Scotia is a professional and ethical industry association that is recognized, valued, and utilized by the public and our membership. LNS promotes the recognition and educational pathways of Landscaping as a professional trade and desirable career opportunity.
LNS was founded as a regional association in the early 1980’s by a group of passionate, like minded professionals committed to creating and highlighting standards and professionalism in the Landscape Horticulture Industry.
LNS works to make educational programs accessible for all members and their employees by promoting and facilitating educational opportunities such as The Landscape Horticultural Certification Program and The Red Seal Endorsement/Apprenticeship.
Our goal is to have certified people in every member company and to create a large, dedicated network of professional companies in all areas of the province through collaboration, mentorship and engagement with the CNLA.
Our members are passionate about helping Nova Scotians keep the landscape around them beautiful, functional and sustainable. We believe that with member volunteers on CNLA’s National committees and the accessibility being created by technology and the online delivery of the LHCP program certification our industry is uniquely positioned for growth, prosperity and positive environmental impact.
We have been a voice for the landscape and horticultural industry for more than 40 years in Nova Scotia, and are committed to providing consumers with options to make informed decisions.
We're Champions for Excellence in Landscape and Horticulture!
Nova Scotia's unique landscape is one of the most powerful factors in attracting both visitors and new residents to our province. Landscape Nova Scotia has a simple goal - to help Nova Scotians keep the landscape around them beautiful, functional and sustainable. Nature provides some stunning raw materials. Technology has created others. We help people integrate the two creatively. Diverse, sustainable landscapes; urban forest; community green space - all are integral to a healthy and thriving community.
Landscape Nova Scotia works to encourage, protect and promote "the green, the blue and the view!"
