The HTA welcomes garden retailers. growers, manufacturers & suppliers, landscapers, and service providers in the UK.

This year has seen our industry, and the world face challenges unlike anything we've seen before.

 

At times like these, it is more important than ever to have the backing of a Trade Association who can support you, nurture your business and promote your needs, as we navigate through this unchartered territory.

Welcome to the Association of Professional Landscapers. This year celebrating 25 years of Landscaping Excellence.

The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) comprises accredited landscape companies who design, build and maintain gardens throughout the UK. The rigorous inspection process to join is the toughest within the industry. Along with the initial inspection, each member is inspected annually to ensure each member has up to date insurances, complies with health and safety law and their quality of work is to the highest possible. The APL is the only landscaping scheme operator of TrustMark, a Government endorsed initiative that promotes professional trades to consumers.

What people have said

Your guidance over the lockdown has been invaluable. It has given us the confidence to continue trading, first with delivery, then with collection and finally opening again, providing a safe working environment for staff and customers throughout. As a consequence our sales are up 75% compared to the same period last year. Thank you!!!

Peter Mansfield, The Village Nurseries

The effort that has gone into the promotion to government and public of the need for support for ornamental growers during the Covid-19 crisis has been exceptional and much appreciated.
