Landscape Design Consultants Council

Mary Ellen Alden, President

The National Capital Area Garden Clubs’ Landscape Design Consultants Council was established in 1969 to promote good landscape design.  The Council has a vibrant Beautification Awards program for cities and counties and by assisting community groups with landscape projects.  The Landscape Design Consultants Council is recognized as a group of earnest individuals devoted to promoting the principles of landscape design and to sharing the love of gardening knowledge with the public.  As such, the Landscape Design Consultants Council is welcomed into private gardens and given special behind-the-scenes tours of public gardens.  Past adventures include:
