Although formally incorporated in 1952, CLCA has been meeting as an association since 1937.

Core Goal

The association's Core Goal is to support CLCA members as they create beautiful, enduring landscapes that improve the quality of life.

Core Values

Public Significance

Contractor members are state licensed and meet all requirements for consumer protection. CLCA therefore educates the consumer about the dangers of hiring unlicensed contractors and maintains an Operation Helping Hand Program to encourage and help unlicensed individuals become licensed landscape contractors.

CLCA is an active force in the statewide effort to conserve water. As water-efficient irrigation experts, many members are invaluable sources for consultations on planning and installing water-saving irrigation systems. CLCA also conducts an active public information program on landscape water management.


The association's state and local activities provide members with a forum for & Services open discussion, networking and learning. The association provides a large menu of services to its members including educational resources, contract forms, educational events, publicity, access to legal consultants and peer advice, group insurance, political advocacy, information, a landscape awards program, a certification program for landscape technicians, and an industry trade show.
