Why are Sustainable Landscape Management Practices Important?

Turfgrass Maintenance Schedule

ALCA has developed a certification program based on Sustainable Landscape Management® (SLM) practices.

SLM practices strive to preserve limited and valuable natural resources such as water, soil, and fuel; to reduce waste generation and pollution; and to support the natural growth habit and longevity of plant material; all while creating more beautiful, healthy, and efficiently maintained landscapes.

SLM certification brings added value to the landscape contractor which in turn brings to current and prospective clients yet another reason to hire ALCA members and to truly "Contract with Landscape Experts".

**Certification current for 2 years. Must pass a recertification exam with 70% or higher in order to retain certification. An email reminder will be sent at the beginning of the month/year that recertification is required. Recertification is completed in the student portal; cost is $50. Please email [email protected] with changes to contact information or login questions.**
